We are seeking submissions for the upcoming group exhibition “A World At Peace”

“A World At Peace” is the theme for our first multi-cultural art exhibition to be held by Congregation Shir Libeynu during the 2016 /( 5776/5777) High Holy Day period and  will be exhibited at “The First Unitarian Congregation, 175 St. Clair Avenue West”.

In this intensely troubled time, the exhibition organizers believe that the multi-cultural, multi-gifted artists of Toronto can do much to bring our communities together.

People are seeking outlets to experience peace, harmony and a sense of community. “A World At Peace” which will pay tribute to spiritual, religious and cultural traditions in a juried display of visual arts, can be another healing initiative.

Artists are asked to submit high resolution jpegs of their work focused on illustrating peace around the world together with their Art Statement. The online deadline will be midnight August 9th, 2016 when the jury will select the chosen works. Display-ready original artwork will be required by September 10, 2016 to be seen by jury for their last decision. We will return those pieces are not selected to be at the exhibition by September 20th, 2016 and the rest will be on display through out the exhibition.

Artists are responsible for delivering their own works to and from Queen Gallery, 382 Queen Street East, Toronto, ON, M5A1T1

We welcome you to take part in sharing your interpretations of world peace.
