The 19th annual Art on the Street, Guelph’s flagship art sale and exhibition, will be hosted online by Guelph Arts Council and the Downtown Guelph Business Association from Saturday, June 19 to Saturday, July 3, 2021. Like 2020’s popular online event, Art on the (Virtual) Street will showcase local talent and allow art lovers to browse select works and purchase their favourites online. The event may return to the street later in 2021, if public health guidelines for COVID-19 safety permit.
Art on the Street 2021 will spotlight multi-disciplinary, diverse talent within the Guelph-Wellington arts community. GAC and the DGBA welcome applications from painters, potters, blacksmiths, jewellers, glass blowers, wood carvers, textile artists, photographers, and more. We strive to be inclusive of BIPOC, LGBTQ2S+, newcomer, youth, low-income, and Deaf artists, and artists with disabilities, and extend a special invitation to all to apply. If artists face barriers to applying or participating in Art on the Street, please let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org or 519-836-3280.
