Art Soiree

Calling all artists

Now in it’s 6th year, the “Passport to Wine & Art Soirée” is one of Govfest’s featured events as part of the annual music and cultural show organized by public servants to celebrate music, arts, and to support community-based projects around the world.

As part of the virtual festivities this year, artworks created by public service employees, their families and friends, will be up on display and available for purchase via an online silent auction. The addition of the online visual arts to Govfest truly makes this an innovative event during these unprecedented times due to COVID-19. Accepted artworks will also be published in a book/catalogue – the first time in the history of this event!

We are calling all contemporary artists from the public service community, their families and friends, to donate and submit works of art. Visual artists who are public servants (staff in the provincial, municipal, federal governments, agencies, schools, health and social services, etc.), including their families and friends are invited to enter the online exhibition/silent auction and submit images of two-dimensional or three-dimensional artworks on any media (e.g. canvas, paper, print, photography, sculpture, textile, etc.)

Note: Artists may submit images of up to four works. All entries must be submitted in digital .jpg format.
