Storefront Art Gallery

Call for Artwork

Project Leader/Exhibition Curator: Diana Lawryshyn
Exhibition Coordinator: Evelina Domeikyte

Applications are now open for the Juvenis Festival Storefront Art Gallery! We are looking for artwork of all kinds from artists between the ages of 13-30 to showcase in our Festival hub, which will pop up in an empty storefront in downtown Kingston. This year's theme is How We Express Ourselves.  

Have you ever thought about what makes you, you? As youth, discovering who we are can often be a struggle, but sometimes it can be best answered though creativity. Let art be a way of exploring ideas, feelings, nature, culture, beliefs, and values; a way to reflect on, extend, and and enjoy the things that make us who we are. This is how we express ourselves. 

Application Deadline:

Wednesday, April 4 by 11:59pm
**High school students- Monday, April 9 by 11:59pm**
