Scarborough Arts celebrates spring’s early arrival by announcing this call for submissions for its annual Spring Members Exhibition. Because our 2016 spring exhibit kicks off during National Poetry Month, we invite our members to submit work in painting, drawing, sculpture, digital art, photography, or new media that responds to, intersects with, or is enriched by poems about the season.

This exhibit will coincide with our National Poetry Month event taking place on April 28th 2016. This event will feature readings by some of the city and country’s most celebrated poets and will be hosted by Scarborough Arts member Patrick Connors. A separate call for submission will be released for our members who write poetry, asking them to supplement this exhibit with their poems about the season.

For more information, email or contact 416-698-7322.

    Do you accept non fiction books on Scarborough. By the date of your show I ought to have published the book `A Radioactive Waste Dump in Malvern; A Citizen`s Account`. If this is acceptable I will submit.

    How many submissions one could make? I mean, for the initial consideration. I am going to submit 5-10 artworks, is it OK?

      Hi Alexandra,

      Unfortunately, we are only accepting one (1) artwork submission for initial consideration. This should be outlined under the Submission Guidelines on page 2 of the Application Form.
