The Pride Report

Calling All Artists – Pride Week Art Show

Moose Jaw Pride is seeking submissions for our Pride Week Art Show, being held on Friday, May 5 from 7pm – 9pm at Tourism Moose Jaw.

Submissions of artwork are encouraged from LGBTQ+ artists as well as our allies in the local community. We will gladly accept statements of interest from artists outside of Moose Jaw, however we may not have funds to cover transportation costs. From first-time artists to professionals, all levels of artists are welcome to contribute artwork into the show.

A modest honorarium of $30 will be offered to the first 10 artists whose Statements of Interest are approved by Moose Jaw Pride. Statements of Interest will be considered on a rolling basis until all honorariums have been disbursed.

Our 2017 theme for Moose Jaw Pride is “Love is Love.” We welcome art work relating to this theme, as well as more general artwork.

We are accepting visual art of many different kinds including: paintings, screen prints, sculpture (including lego), photography and others.
