Guelph, ON – February 3, 2021 – 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.
Guelph Arts Council will accept applications from artists within Guelph and Wellington County from Thursday February 11 until Thursday March 25. Applications submitted by this deadline will be juried first for the virtual event and, if applicable, a second time for the in-person event. There is no fee to take part in the virtual event and applicants must have the ability to accept online payment and offer delivery or curbside pick-up. Booth pricing details for the in-person event, if held, will be announced. Admission notifications will go out on or before Thursday, April 8. The detailed artist guidelines and application form will be posted at guelpharts.ca.
