ACADIE : le peuple, le paysage, l’histoire (people, landscape, history)

Le Conseil des arts de la Baie (CAB) is a non-profit association founded in 1968 with a mandate to promote and develop the arts in Clare, Nova Scotia. This summer, le Congrès Mondial Acadien 2024 will bring together the Acadian diaspora from the four corners of the world for nine days of celebrations, discoveries and reunions on the Acadian Shore in Southwestern Nova Scotia.

During this celebration, le CAB is organizing several artistic events, including an exhibition on the theme of the Acadian experience. The works submitted may have as their theme the landscapes of the Acadian regions of Nova Scotia, portraits of Acadian individuals, the history of the Acadian people or other related theme. Artists who submit works with more open themes must justify the link to Acadia in their artist statements.

Le CAB is calling on all professional artists in the Atlantic provinces to submit a project for this group exhibition at the Père-Léger-Comeau Gallery. The chosen works will be exhibited from July 2 to August 31, 2024. Artists can submit up to 10 works. Three to five works from each artist will be chosen (the number depending on dimensions and themes). All submitted works must be available for the duration of the exhibition. (from July 2 to August 31)

Le CAB undertakes to pay CARFAC artist fees, transport and insurance of the works.

Submission deadline is May 6, 2024.
