Provincial art bank seeks submissions from Island artists
Island artists are invited to submit their work by February 20, 2020 to be considered for purchase by the Provincial Art Bank.
The Provincial Art Bank collection includes 249 works of art by 145 Island artists. The art bank acquires, loans and displays art that was purchased or donated. Pieces are displayed in public buildings and spaces for Islanders to enjoy and are available for educational use.
“We are so fortunate to have a community of such creative and talented visual artists on our Island. Art and culture are essential to who we are as Islanders and what we have to offer as a province. The art bank is a wonderful way for all of us to celebrate our Island artists and appreciate their beautiful work.”
