Deadline: 8 Oct 2017

Figureworks 2017 is open to artists whose artwork represents the human form or parts thereof. Figureworks believes in being inclusive. The 2017 jury includes photographer Johnathan Hobin, visual artist Elaine Despins, and curator Rose Ekins. The exhibit will be held at St. Brigid’s Centre for the Arts, a historic church transformed into a beautiful exhibition space right in the heart of Ottawa’s beautiful Byward Market.

Figureworks believes strongly in providing artists an excellent opportunity to exhibit their work.  They are committed to do their best to increase the prize money available to artists every year. They are volunteer based. All entry fees and sponsorships go to basic operational costs and prize money. Figureworks does not take any commissions on sales at the exhibition. All the money goes directly to the artists.

Figureworks is more than an annual competition, it is a community of artists whom are passionate about the human figure. At the Figureworks competition, artists have their work reviewed by a professional jury and the opportunity to win cash prizes ($3600 was awarded last year). Those in the show will have their work display in Ottawa, Canada’s Capital for two weeks and be published on the Figureworks web site. Artists have the opportunity to sell their art works.
