Latcham Art Centre – 2 Park Dr.
work from home
Open: Friday, November 4 – Saturday, December 10, 2022
work from home includes artwork made during COVID-19, by past and present instructors, volunteers, staff and Board members of Latcham Art Centre. These works were created while much of the global workforce shifted from working in-office to working remotely. For some visual artists, their studios also moved into their homes. Creative time provided by the pandemic was abundant—for better or for worse—and the challenge of separating work, life and studio presented itself.
We would like to acknowledge the Young Canada Works program for committing to fund a staff resource for this exhibition. Nous remercions le programme Young Canada Works de s’être engagé à financer une ressource en personnel pour cet exposition.
Town Office Gallery – 111 Sandiford Dr.
Open: November 1, 2022 – Jan 31, 2023
“I paint with cold wax, oil, and acrylic on canvas and wooden board. The beauty of nature in its entirety, especially during my many camping and hiking trips in Algonquin Park and Lake Superior, has greatly inspired me in the pieces that I create.”
Sylva Sroujian is an Armenian artist from Lebanon who has called Canada home for over thirty years. She now lives in Richmond Hill. Although her education and career were in business, art making has been her primary focus for the past seven years.
The Town Office Gallery is programmed by Latcham Art Centre in collaboration with the Town of Whitchurch-Stouffville.
Open: Wednesday, December 14, 2022 – Saturday, January 14, 2023
Opening Reception: Wednesday, December 14, 2022, 7:00–9:00 PM
Latcham Art Centre is thrilled to be partnering once again with the graduating class of Stouffville District Secondary School for a showcase of their artistic talents. For over two decades, the grade twelve art students from SDSS have worked with Latcham’s curator to mount a professional exhibition of artworks that they have created during their first semester. This year we are excited to bring the exhibition back in-person; please join us at the opening reception to celebrate the students’ achievements.
Latcham Art Centre is committed to planning a balanced exhibition program and highlights work that stimulates the community in Whitchurch-Stouffville, as well as reaching a larger art community in Ontario.
We welcome exhibition proposals for Latcham Art Centre and the Whitchurch-Stouffville Town Office Gallery throughout the year. Artists from across Ontario (and nationally when possible) working in all media are encouraged to submit exhibition proposals for Latcham’s main gallery space at 2 Park Drive. The Town Office Gallery at 111 Sandiford Drive is currently dedicated to promoting artists who live and work within York Region only.
Click on the appropriate link below for submission guidelines and other information about the application process. Separate exhibition proposal packages are required for each exhibition space. Programming is often scheduled one to two years in advance. Receipt of proposals will be acknowledged by email. We look forward to reviewing your proposals!
Annual Juried Exhibition
Each year, Latcham Art Centre hosts the Annual Juried Exhibition and invites artists from all over Ontario to submit their work. Three distinguished jurors from a variety of art backgrounds are given the task of choosing the works for this highly anticipated annual exhibition.
A maximum of two recent original artworks may be submitted by each artist along with the entry form and fee. A total of $1000 in juror’s awards is presented each year at the opening reception event where visitors can meet many of the exhibiting artists.
2022 submissions are now closed.
