Your Art in a Gallery – Yes You Can!


You are entering art in the ASSC Student Art Competition, Show and Sale. Why not submit your art for consideration for Strathcona County’s Annual Art Acquisition – Youth Category (SCAAA)?

Strathcona County buys or borrows original art from local artists through its Annual Art Acquisition Program. 

Youth Art will be juried at the Red Barn and the selected works will be taken for display at the Salon Series Exhibition, at the Gallery 501 from May 15 to June 23, 2018 . The selection is not final until approved by Strathcona County Council. 

The art approved by Council will be revealed at the Unveiling Ceremony with Mayor and Council on Thursday, June 7th 2018 at 7pm. 

 Artists will be notified prior to the reception if they have been selected. 

Artists, friends and family are invited to the Galley @ 501 on reception night. There is no admission fee to the Gallery.

  • Art selected for the SCAAA art will be displayed in the Artrium in the CommunityCentre in the Park for one year after the Salon Series closes.    
  • After one year, works selected for loan will be returned to the student.
  • Artwork that is purchased for Strathcona County’s Art Collection will be distributed throughout Strathcona County buildings for display.

 Eligibility:

  • Students must live in Strathcona County or their parents must be ratepayers here.
  • Artwork must be original and completed within the last two years.
  • Art created in class is acceptable if the reference is original and the instructor has not physically assisted in the creation of the art.

Youth artists have three options when submitting to the Youth Art Collection:

  • sell your original artwork to the Collection, or

  • donate your original artwork to the Collection.
