Attention Artists! PRE-SHRUNK TIME IS HERE!

Have you picked up your PRE-SHRUNK surfaces yet from DESERRES or NSCAD Art Supply? 

They have lots of surfaces to choose from including wide profile canvas and board. Go and see them soon for the best selection and start creating. It's hard to believe it's that time of year again to remind all of you artists to participate in our Pre-Shrunk show opening on Friday, January 24th, 2020.

This will be our 16th year for this highly anticipated and exciting event that brings people together, including so many different styles of art and provides a fun accessible way for people of all ages to appreciate and purchase original art. Not to mention, it's just the best show to attend to boost you spirits! We just received an image from artist Sharon Cave of an adorable fox that will be included in the show.

Pre-Shrunk is a wonderful show to showcase your work and reach a huge audience. Many of our gallery artists actually began working with us because of group shows including this one.

The challenge with this show is choosing your subject carefully, as painting on a small 4" x 5" surface may not be as easy as it sounds. Each work is priced at $175 at the show as well, to encourage people to just enjoy the art for what it is, and not necessarily who it's by.

The show opens late January, but because this is a juried show we need to receive your submissions early January, so don't delay.  

We can't wait to see your art. Of course, feel free to phone or email us with any questions about the guidelines. HAPPY ARTING!
