The Salt Spring National Art Prize 2021/22 Call for Artist Submissions opening January 1, 2021 The Salt Spring National Art Prize (SSNAP) was established in 2015 to recognize, showcase, and publicize the accomplishments of Canadian visual artists and to advance public appreciation of visual arts. Through this initiative, we encourage Canadian artists whose work demonstrates originality, quality, integrity and creativity to submit significant pieces with a real visual impact and depth of meaning. As a biennial national art prize with $41,000 in awards, we are committed to continuing our legacy and look toward mounting a live exhibition in September 2021, respecting public health protocols in place at that time.
A parallel exhibition will be hosted featuring work by Southern Gulf Island Artists selected by the Jury.
Canadian citizens and permanent residents of Canada who are eighteen years of age and older as of January 1, 2020, are invited to submit their two-dimensional and three-dimensional work for consideration. SSNAP will showcase approximately 50 finalists chosen by a national jury. An exhibition of the finalists’ work will take place in Sept/Oct 2021 at Mahon Hall on Salt Spring Island, B.C.
