Visual Arts Mississauga 31st Annual Juried Exhibition of Fine Arts

Since 1987, the Art Gallery of Mississauga has hosted this popular annual event organized by Visual Arts Mississauga (VAM).

"Visual Arts Mississauga strives to enrich community life by fostering an appreciation in the arts through active involvement in a variety of creative experiences".

Visual Arts Mississauga is a community arts organization providing classes in printmaking, sculpture, watercolours, drawing and painting, children’s art camps and rental space for weekend art exhibitions and sales. The VAM call for entry is one of the region’s most anticipated events, bringing in hundreds of submissions from working artists across Ontario. It is an annual opportunity to survey a variety of practices by artists who range from graduating students to senior members of the visual arts community.

The exhibition serves to foster a sense of connection between the artists, Visual Arts Mississauga and the Art Gallery of Mississauga. In addition, honours are awarded to selected works in the exhibition. This year’s award sponsors are;
Bulova Watch Company – First Place
Visual Arts Mississauga – Second Place
Curry’s Art Store – Third Place
Desserres Art Store – Honourable Mention
Art Gallery of Mississauga – People’s Choice Award

Jurors for this competition are Stuart Reid, Didi Gadjanski and Greg Damery.
