Eye 4 Art returns in November



Local artists are in the spotlight as the Thames Art Gallery invites all Chatham-Kent artists to submit their best work for this entertaining and high-profile event.

This premier local art competition is ready to roll after a prolonged pandemic hiatus.

Whether you are an artist, a collector, or someone looking to get to know CK’s creative community better, this is an exhibition and an event welcoming to all. The Eye 4 Art exhibition runs from Nov. 18-Jan. 14, with a gala opening on Nov. 18.

Artists will compete for prize money donated by local sponsors, with awards to be announced on Nov. 18 as part of the opening festivities.

C-K’s own Scott Everingham will assume the mantle of exhibition juror this year.

“Scott Everingham has earned an international career as a painter, and exemplifies the potential and talent that Chatham-Kent produces,” gallery curator Phil Vanderwall said in a media release. “We’re always excited to see who will step forward, and this exhibition is here to celebrate homegrown creativity at its finest”

In addition to filling the spaces of the Thames Art Gallery with artwork of all sorts, Eye 4 Art is an opportunity for the arts community to shine and for the community to support. All work in the gallery will be for sale and a variety of events are planned to raise funds in support of TAG’s Community Arts Initiative ARTspace.

This is a juried exhibition and participating artists are asked to fill out the entry forms now available on the gallery’s website. In addition, detailed information about how you can become a sponsor, donate or volunteer is also available by contacting the Thames Art Gallery at ckartgallery@chatham-kent.ca.
