About the Annual Juried Exhibition
Every year, Scarborough Arts produces its Annual Juried Exhibition, an showcase of art created and curated in response to a themed call. We leave the interpretation of the theme up to the artists. Pieces, which can be in any medium, are selected for exhibition based upon a combination of artistic quality, technical execution, conceptual strength, originality, and impact.

The jury, made up of gallery and community arts professionals, changes each year.

About the BIG ART BOOK
The BIG ART BOOK is a print and digital anthology of visual and literary work by local and emerging artists and writers. Building on the foundation established by the annual Youth Scholarship Awards and the 2010 Scarborough Writers’ Month, the BIG ART BOOK involves residents of all ages interested in promoting their work and connecting with like-minded members of the community.

This project was developed in response to identified needs among local Scarborough artists and a broader desire at Scarborough Arts to support intergenerational, multidisciplinary programs that are accessible to community members of all ages and interests.
