Guelph, ON – January 26, 2022 – Guelph Arts Council and the Downtown Guelph Business Association are thrilled to announce the return of Art on the Street to Guelph’s Quebec Street. 2022 marks the 20th anniversary of Guelph’s beloved outdoor art exhibition and sale. To celebrate this milestone, the event will be expanded and hosted over two consecutive days: Saturday, June 25 (10 am – 5 pm) and Sunday, June 26 (11 am – 4 pm).
Applications from artists for this juried event will be accepted until March 7, 2022. The detailed artist guidelines and application form are posted at guelpharts.ca.Artists who need support for the application process or have questions after reviewing the guidelines are invited to contact Paige Bromby at [email protected] or 519-836-3280.
Art on the Street is co-presented by the Downtown Guelph Business Association and Guelph Arts Council. The event, which has grown over the past two decades to become Guelph’s largest outdoor exhibition and sale, features contemporary fine art and craft from established and emerging regional artists. After pivoting to Art on the (Virtual) Street for two years, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, GAC and the DGBA are excited to return to an in-person outdoor art experience. Guelph’s residents and visitors can connect with diverse artists on Quebec Street and take high-quality original art – including painting, pottery, woodworking, textile art, glass work, jewellery, and more – home with them.
Art on the Street is a free event that welcomes art lovers of all ages. Join us in celebrating 20 years of fresh-air art experiences on June 25 and 26!
