The Kamloops Arts Council’s Art Exposed Regional Exhibition is a community-centred visual arts exhibit. Unique to Kamloops. Art Exposed is open to all residents of the TNRD, emerging to established. Artists are invited to submit artwork in any medium – 2D and 3D.
Art Exposed gives the public a chance to view local artwork of many different types, including paintings, drawings, sculpture, jewellery, pottery, photography and more. Community artists submit up to two works of art each. All submitted works are displayed at the Old Courthouse for the duration of the exhibit. Every nook and cranny of the Old Courthouse is filled with art: the past few years up to 200 pieces are accepted from approximately 120 artists from the TNRD, with a significant number of works selling each year. A VIP Preview allows special invitees, including sponsors and dignitaries, to view the artwork prior to opening night. At a well-attended opening night reception, a team of three respected arts authorities awards prizes and honourable mentions. The next day, artists receive feedback on their work from the jurors.
Art Exposed 2023 is happening from March 3rd to 12th. The opening night and awards ceremony will be happening March 3rd, from 5pm to 7:30pm, at the Old Courthouse and needs to be RVSP’d for.
