  • All artwork must have the artist's name and contact information at the back.

  • Wet paint (freshly finished oil paintings) will not be accepted.

  • Please avoid glass if possible, and very heavy art, to ensure safe handling.

  • Art on paper, board, canvas board etc must be framed and wired. Matting alone is not considered a frame.

Steps to Participate:

2. Fill out the submission form by clicking on the"Apply Now" button below (before deadline).

3. Email images to

4. After Artusiasm confirms acceptance, please send e-transfer payment to (password artusiasm).

5. Drop off artwork within designated time slots only. No late drop offs will be accepted, sorry. Early drop off is fine.

6. Mark the art pick up date on your calendar. Storage and handling fees will be charged for late pick up.


Attendance at the Opening Reception (throughout the evening) is highly recommended. Please contact us if you might not be able to attend. From our experience with previous events, we have lost sales due to the artist not being present. We have been advised by several potential buyers that they prefer to meet the artist in person and hear about the story behind the art before they purchase. That is the whole point of a potential buyer attending the opening reception. 

Priority will be given to artists that will be attending the reception.
