Northern Juried Art Show returning after one-year hiatus

Thompson hosting event for 10th time overall after 2018 show was cancelled

Even though organizers had to cancel last year’s event due to a lack of submissions, local artist Jan Hall said the Northern Juried Art Show will definitely be coming back to the Hub of the North May 6-12.

Hall said May 1 that she’s already received about 80 submissions from artists based in communities including Thompson, Flin Flon, The Pas and Creighton, Saskatchewan.

These submissions are divided among categories like painting, photography, mixed media, fibre art and sculptures.

Artists will publicly display their work at the C.A. Nesbitt Arena May 9-12, and a jury of their peers will determine which pieces are worthy of cash prizes. 

Hall said the 2019 Northern Juried Art Show is largely unchanged from what they had planned last year, and attributes that event’s cancellation to 2018 being a “down year.”

Beginning with an opening reception on Thursday night, this year’s art submissions will be set up inside the C.A. Nesbitt Arena on Friday and Saturday from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. and on Sunday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
