Huge Success of 47th Juried Open Exhibition – Now Extended Online

Canadian Artists are being collected world-wide. The Society of Canadian Artists represents some of the finest talent in the country. That was evident to many after a super successful exhibition of the 47th Open National Juried Exhibition held in Calgary at Gainsborough Galleries Ltd.

The show resulted in 13 sales at the Gallery, with two of the artists receiving offers for representation. Now there’s an added opportunity to purchase some of these great artworks. The SCA has extended this show with the Online version of this exhibition to October 1st. Take another look. You might just find the piece that speaks to you: “I want to live on your walls!”

    

SCA 47th Open National Juried Exhibition

closes in Calgary but continues online until October 1, 2015 

It is with great pride that we look back on two weeks at the Gainsborough Galleries in Calgary presenting the 47th Open National Juried Exhibition to the public, collectors and fellow artists. I reported previously on a successful and well-attended opening reception with many wonderful comments on the high quality of artwork shown.

As the show closes, I am pleased to confirm that we had a record number of sales: the magical number 13. Who says it ain’t lucky? Congratulations again to all the award recipients and those artists who sold their work. In addition, the exposure at this prominent gallery also resulted in two artists, Joel Sinclair SCA and Chantal Julien SCA, being taken on as gallery artists. Congratulations! With such an effort putting on a show like this, it is gratifying to see how well it turned out!

To give the artists who participated in the 47th Open even more exposure and the chance to sell their work, the SCA has decided to continue the show ONLINE in a new format until October 1, 2015. Be sure to check www.societyofcanadianartists.com with a link to the gallery.

Meanwhile, submissions for our next exhibition, the 2015 Elected Members’ Show at the Flato Markham Theatre, Markham, ON later this fall are coming in. Please remember, the deadline is fast approaching: August 28, 2015. We look forward to showing off what our members have created in the last little while!
