The 10th Annual Square Foot Show will be the grand finale of the 2023 season at the Grand Manan Art Gallery. This show is popular with both artists and visitors to the Gallery. The objective is to pack as much punch as possible into one square foot of space. We welcome a variety of artwork — paintings, drawings, photographs, fiber art, ceramics, wood, and mixed media pieces, but there is one stipulation. The outside dimensions of the artwork (including any frame) must measure 12 inches by 12 inches.

This event is a major fund raiser for the gallery. Up to four pieces may be submitted, and all the artwork will be priced at $200. There will be an entry fee of $10 per piece, and a modest 25% commission on sales. Gallery visitors will be encouraged to vote for their favourite pieces, and People’s Choice Awards of $200, $150 and $100 will be given for the three most popular works in the show.

If you wish to participate in the Square Foot Show, download an entry form from our website and submit it to the Gallery office by September 4. The Entry Fee of $10 per submission is payable by e-transfer gmag2121@gmail.com, or cheque made payable to the Gallery and mailed to the Treasurer:
