The Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA of NB) in Charlotte County is excited to host their second creative works exhibit during Mental Illness Awareness Week from October 4 to 10, 2020, at the Sunbury Shores Arts and Nature Centre in St. Andrews. If you are a resident of Charlotte County living with the effects of mental illness and have a creative piece or pieces you would like to share, then submit your work for juried consideration!

Acceptable mediums for the pieces are visual, textile, and literary. Creative pieces will be selected based on the proficiency and technical skill in the chosen medium, and the size of the work.


  • Applicants are invited to submit a maximum of three (3) original pieces of their work for consideration.
  • A completed application form must be included with each submission.
  • The application process does not require you to send your original pieces. Only photographs or digital
    images of your work should accompany your application.
  • Applications must include a brief Artist Statement. Your statement describes the significance of creativity in
    your life and how the creative process improves your mental well-being. Please note that artist statements will
    be displayed and should not be longer than 100 words.
