And that means there are fewer than three (count 'em!) months left to the deadline for entering the "Colour With a 'U'" Call for Entry. SAQA WC's Co-Rep for MB/SK is on the committee charged with recruiting artists for this exhibit, and she's sending along these words to encourage any who are working on their entries, have just started them, are still pondering them, or didn't plan to answer the Call. You know who you are... 😉
You will never have a better chance!
You will never have a better chance to have your work accepted into a SAQA exhibit. The ‘Colour with a U’ call for entry is an all Canada and Canada only SAQA show. The exhibit organizers are expecting about 100 artists to enter pieces into this call. Between 30 and 45 pieces will be chosen for ‘Colour with a U’ and a further 10 to 12 pieces chosen for a smaller exhibit ‘Colour with a U Too’. Both will tour around Canada for three years.
Can you do the math? Your chances of your work being chosen are excellent, especially since only one work per artist will be accepted. The deadline is January 3, 2020: you have time.
You will be able to take ‘Get into a SAQA Show” off of your bucket list.
