Awards Update

We didn’t get any jewellery or textile entries this year. As well, we realized that we have forgotten to make an award for “Pottery or Ceramics”. We’ve shifted some of the award money around to fix both of those problems. You will see that in the updated awards grid on About the Show.

Speaking of awards, remember that they will be announced at the Opening reception, Oct 16. We’ll do the awards near the beginning, so don’t be late! (Artists: You do not have to be there to receive an award!)

Award winners get the cash, and will also be given a custom-designed badge to display on their social media or website. Here’s the best Photography badge:

Exciting New Award

We have a new award, and this is a huge – world first huge – announcement, and we are So Excited: Art Gate VR is a virtual reality platform (using 3D goggles & handset, like for VR gaming) for galleries, collectors, and artists to exhibit art. Art Gate will award a six month solo exhibition in virtual reality to one of the finalists in the Newmarket Juried Art Show. This will be a free four-artwork exhibition for 6 months. A larger exhibition can be discussed with the winner if desired.
