Call for Submissions
White Coat, Warm Art Exhibit, Ottawa Ontario - April 24-29th 2014
This exhibit will showcase the creative talents of medical and other health sciences faculty, residents, students, and physicians and other health professionals from across Canada. This will be a juried exhibition. Entries will be accepted in a wide variety of categories, including oils, watercolour, photographs, pastels, etchings, pen and ink, etc. Some limited space will also be available for the display of small sculptures.
Artistic Selection: Preference will be given, for the live exhibit, to pieces of art that capture the human experience of practicing and/or learning medicine, however art that is not related to that specific theme, is welcomed. Selection for all pieces will be based on artistic merit, as demonstrated skill in effecting a particular artistic vision in the media chosen. Accompanying artist statements will also be read and considered during the selection process.
TWO Categories - YOU MUST SPECIFY WHICH CATEGORY YOU ARE SUBMITTING TO:
Judging will be carried out online so all entries (both categories) must be sent in for judging as digital images. For paintings and sculptures, please include a clear digital image of the artwork showing as much detail as possible.
For further information you can contact Dr. Carol-Ann Courneya (UBC, Faculty of Medicine) firstname.lastname@example.org, or Dr. Pamela Brett-MacLean (UAlberta, Faculty of Medicine & Dentistry) email@example.com.
