Unsuccessful submissions must be picked up on Saturday, March 3 between noon and 2 p.m. All exhibited artwork must be picked up on Monday, April 2 between 7 p.m. and 8:30 p.m.
A public reception will be held on Friday, March 9 at 7 p.m. Enjoy food, entertainment, and fine art. Admission is free. Everyone is welcome.
What is SCENES FROM A DREAM?
Mendel Youth Council is offering opportunities for Saskatoon youth to present their creativity in a gallery setting. MYC welcomes submissions on the theme of dreams, representing a wide range of interpretations and media.
Due to space limitations, sculptural work must be smaller than 18 inches in any direction. While we prefer that you frame your own 2D works, the Mendel will endeavor to frame what is needed. The artwork is not insured. The Mendel Art Gallery will take precautions to exhibit all pieces as safely as possible in the auditorium space.
Who can be in the exhibition?
Mendel Youth Council is seeking submissions from high-school-aged artists from Saskatoon and area. Last year’s exhibition was a huge success, so this is your chance to be part of MYC’s great programming!
How can I submit my work and have it returned?
The deadline for submissions is Wednesday, February 29, 2012 between 5:30 and 7:30 p.m. (Works will not be accepted outside of this time.) Bring your labeled submissions with your contact and label information, and a paragraph describing your work, to the Mendel Art Gallery. There is no limit to the number of works an artist may submit. All artists will be notified within four days whether or not works are accepted.
Unsuccessful submissions must be picked up on Saturday, March 3 between noon and 2 p.m. It is important that works are picked up at this time, as the gallery lacks storage space.
All exhibited artwork must be picked up following the exhibition on Monday, April 2 between 7 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. It is important that works are picked up at this time, as the gallery lacks storage space.
