Every two years the GPAG hosts a juried exhibition to showcase new and exciting works by artists from across Ontario. This competition often attracts up to 200 entries; from these the jurors select about 30 pieces to be in the show.
The jurors for the 2014 competition are Denis Longchamp, Curator at the Burlington Art Centre, Deirdre Chisholm, Director-Curator, Norfolk Arts Centre, Simcoe and Jane Adeney, senior artist from Hamilton. As well as selecting works for the show, the jurors will be determining the winners of the 1st, 2nd & 3rd prizes and the Local Artist’s Award. The winner of the Viewer’s Choice Award will be determined at the end of the show.
The juried process is always an exciting one – for the artists; for the jurors; for the gallery; and for the viewers – and a process in which we all manage to experience something new!
