Art Exposed 2023

"Art Exposed" from the KAC website

Art Exposed (now running for over 10 years) is a community-focused visual arts exhibit. This exhibit is open to all residents of the Thompson–Nicola Regional District, both emerging and established, for March 2023.

Community artists are invited to submit up to 2 works of 2D or 3D artwork, including paintings, drawings, sculpture, jewellery, pottery, photography and more.

A VIP Preview allows special invitees, including sponsors and dignitaries, to view the artwork prior to opening night. At a well-attended opening night reception, a team of three respected arts authorities awards, prizes, and honourable mentions. The next day, artists receive feedback on their work from the jurors.

The non-curated approach ensures that artists of varying experience can participate in Art Exposed. For some, it will be the first time they publicly display their work. This exhibition offers artists the chance to share their work, gain exposure, and receive valuable feedback.

Admission is by donation.


Artists can apply here, the deadline is FEBRUARY 14TH, 2023.

Those interested in being a juror for this exhibition can apply here.
