NEW WESTMINSTER, BC – June 2019,  100 Braid St Studios and the Arts Council of New Westminster invite you to take part in the 3rd annual International Artists Day Anonymous Show on October 25th 2019.  International Artist Day (iAD) was launched in 2004 to honour the contribution artists make to society. With the help of municipal and corporate sponsors artists promote festivals and events designed to increase the visibility of art and its makers in a wide variety of genres from painting, to writing, music, the digital arts, and everything in between.

New Westminster celebrates this day with an Anonymous Art Show which also acts as the largest fundraiser of the year for the Arts Council of New Westminster. We invite you to be one of the well-known and emerging artists to display your talents. With your name only signed only on the back, the nature of the show ensures all art is treated equally, while providing anticipation and exhilaration to the event.

Submit your interest in participating in the show by clicking here and filling out the form on the bottom of the page. We will preview your website and social media channels for examples of your work (you do not need to submit the final work or photos of your work). Once you have been accepted, you may submit one to three 12” x 12” x 1 ½” deep gallery wrapped canvas or wood panel. If you are a textile artist or mixed media artist we are happy to discuss other options.

If you are accepted into the show you will receive an e-mail along with an invoice for the $25 entrance fee.
