Free Open Call Art Submissions 2024: An Exhibition for Emerging Visual Artists

Canadian Art Exhibition May 2024

This event is a not for profit art exhibit to showcase emerging Canadian talent in the visual arts. 

As an artist who has worked very hard to make partnerships with galleries, Sasha knows first hand how few opportunities are out there for talented emerging artists to have their work seen.


She is committed to offering a supportive platform to shake the art community up and allow artists to expand their audience and be honoured for the dedication to their art practice.

The exhibition will take place in Halifax, Nova Scotia, that will open with reception on May 16th and continue through May 19th, 2024.
