Is your Art PRICELESS?

This is an open call for the 2nd Annual Priceless juried art auction. Submission is open to all artists working in all photography, painting, print-making, drawing and sculpture. Abstract, expressive, impressionist and realistic styles are all welcome. Successful entries will combine an original subject/concept and feature excellent composition in chosen medium.

This exhibition will not be curated on a theme but rather the work will be chosen on the basis of artistic merit and originality. 

Local artists are commissioned to make artworks. At the Priceless auction each piece is auctioned off to young professionals. The winner of each piece is the “YoPro” who pledges the most volunteer hours. These hours are completed at not-for-proft organizations. 

Each piece will be displayed throughout the year within the local sponsors’ location. Once the winning bidder has completed their hours, the artwork will be presented to them at NEXTNiagara Socials

Approximately 15 pieces will be selected for the exhibition; the selections will be made by an impartial jury made up of informed members of the community. 

Artists will receive a $500 honourarium. 

Audio/visual pieces are not eligible for submission. 

Pieces must be complete and display ready. 

Artists may submit more than one piece for consideration. Only 1 piece per artist will be selected. 

Approved pieces will be featured in promotion of the event. This may include visual display of artwork in advertising, use on social media, etc. By entering, the artist gives NEXTNiagara and the Greater Niagara Chamber of Commerce permission to use the artwork for display and other noncommercial purposes. 

Payment for pieces is conditional upon application acceptance, sponsorship of the piece and delivery of the piece.
