Submissions invited for provincial art collection28 November 2022
FREDERICTON (GNB) – The Department of Tourism, Heritage and Culture is inviting artists to submit work to be considered for inclusion in the New Brunswick art collection.
Established in 1968, the permanent collection celebrates the province’s excellence in the contemporary visual arts.
“Our many talented artists share the New Brunswick story,” said Tourism, Heritage and Culture Minister Tammy Scott-Wallace. “The collection exists to honour the best parts of our past, support current streams of creativity and look towards our shared future with compassion, confidence and enthusiasm.”
The collection, now known as CollectionArtNB, acquires new artwork every two years. Artists can submit their proposals to either the general category or the Indigenous category. Guidelines and forms will be available on the CollectionArtNB website.
The department will accept submissions until Friday, Jan. 6 at 4:30 p.m.
