The Juried Art Exhibition Fundraiser has now closed, artwork purchases and voting are no longer available
For this year’s event, we’re especially excited to announce an online catalogue to view and purchase work from your own home! Launching on the day of the exhibition, the online catalogue gives a chance for audiences to peruse incredible local art if making it into the gallery isn’t possible. This year’s artwork sales will be a 50/50 split between artists and the VAC (Artists may donate 100% of their sale to the gallery. A tax receipt will be issued for all donated proceeds).

Before visiting the VAC, please read our guidelines to learn more about the protocols we are asking our visitors to follow to keep everyone safe and comfortable.

To celebrate the holiday times of 2020, we are proud to celebrate our creative community through our first ever Juried Art Exhibition and Fundraiser. This new community exhibition offers selected artists an opportunity to exhibit their work and win prizes, as well as help support the VAC in continuing to serve the larger Clarington community in the future.
For over 40 years, the VAC has produced eclectic, locally-engaged exhibitions and public programming that have always offered something new. We are extremely excited for 2021, and with your help, we will present some of our most ambitious exhibitions and engaging community-oriented programs to date.
Four prizes will be handed out this year, three of which will be selected by the jurors Matthew Kyba and Noor Alé and a People’s Choice Award, which will be voted on by the public and announced at the end of the exhibition.
The award categories are as follows:
First Place Award - Sadko Hadžihasanović
Second Place Award - Megan Cole
Third Place Award - Andrieana Montgomery
The People’s Choice Award - Hannah Stauffer
The Jury will select 1st, 2nd and 3rd place works providing cash prizes. Exhibition viewers will choose A People’s Choice Award based on popular in-gallery voting and online voting.
