This year, you can experience Art Now online from anywhere in the world, and can also visit 16 of the participating galleries on location within Saskatchewan.
Applicants must be a SCC juried professional craftsperson or juried affiliated member in good standing when submitting an application for Art Now 2021.
SCC Member Services and Exhibitions staff will select featured work for Art Now 2021.
Multiple pieces may be selected from each artist.
Preference will be given to recently created works not previously shown at past Art Now fairs.
Please do not include works that are submitted to concurrent events.
Selections are based on many factors including, but not limited to, the variety of media; capacity; and ease of installation.
While the SCC will attempt to include as many pieces as possible from a wide variety of artists, we reserve the right to select work that is most appropriate for the event.
Artists will be notified of application results by
August 04, 2021.

2. Shared control over process and product;
3. Acknowledgement and attribution;
