2019 Art Now Exhibitor Applications Now Open

Founded in 2016, the Art Now Fine Art Fair is the only event of its kind on the Canadian prairies. On September 19-22, 2019, commercial galleries will converge at the Soundstage in Regina for the fourth edition of this exciting show. In this unique location, the show will feature hundreds of original artworks from premiere galleries, all for sale and all in one place.

Applications for exhibitors are now open until April 30, 2019. Visit the Art Now Exhibitors page for more information and to download the application.

Art Now aims to provide a comfortable and accessible art fair experience that breaks down traditional barriers for people interested in fine art but too intimidated to go to a gallery. Attendees can also take in a series of artist talks, demonstrations, and sessions. There is no admission fee to Art Now and art lovers of all ages are welcome.

You are a Canadian. You are proud. Whether you were born here or immigrated here, Canada is part of your story. So, show it off by displaying Canadian art in your home.

When you purchase Canadian-made, original art, you are investing in the creativity that furthers cultural development in our country. Art is an expression of the creators’ history and owning artwork is a reflection of a part of who you are, how you perceive, and what you love. When choosing that special piece of art, it is important to find something you connect with; something that makes your heart skip a beat and draws you closer. Having original artwork in your home can improve your quality of life by initiating conversations, displaying character, and providing daily inspiration. 

Art Now, the Saskatchewan Fine Art Fair, showcases a variety of Canadian-prairie galleries displaying works of art from all over the country, all in one place.  Walk through the galleries and stroll through sculpture garden to view what Canadian artists have to offer. Support local talent and keep our artists at home. 

Happen to fall in love with one of the pieces? Art Now provides the opportunity to meet with some these artists who created the pieces. Listen to their stories behind the art and get a glimpse into the creative process. Art Now is a space to fall in love, build relationships with gallerists, curators, and artists, and contribute to the creative fabric that makes up the Canadian culture we know and love.

Come to Art Now; You Won't Regret It

When it comes to art fairs, some visitors may be nervous; they can be intimidating places.  Big art fairs, and even smaller ones to a degree, are fast-paced, busy, visually stimulating, and at times, confusing to navigate. But when it really comes down to it, art fairs are a gathering place for people to appreciate and experience fine art, and maybe even (hopefully) buy a piece or two for their collections. Art fairs can also provide more than that if you want them to; sessions and panels, information about art trends, social nights, and networking opportunities abound. Art fairs are cultural events aimed to support gallery systems that bring together the community and all levels of art-lovers.

Here in Canada, there are only a handful of fine art fairs, and until three years ago, there were none on the prairies. Art Now Fine Art Fair was created to showcase the very best Saskatchewan and Canadian original fine art and to bring that art fair experience to Saskatchewan. The event works to increase public awareness, appreciation, and the audience for fine art andbrings a new cultural experience to those who may not otherwise visit art galleries. There is no admission charge for Art Now and the event is family friendly. 

In our third year, Art Now is bigger than ever before and will be featuring galleries from all three prairie provinces. Attendees will be treated to new works from artists represented by Nouveau Gallery, The Gallery / art placement inc, Assiniboia Gallery, Bohème Gallery, Slate Fine Art Gallery, Void, Saskatchewan Craft Council, Collector’s Choice Art Gallery, Art Calgary, Lantern, and Sâkêwêwak Artists’ Collective. We have also added an exciting new collaborative installation space featuring 3D works. 

Information sessions, panels, and artist talks will round out your art fair experience at Art Now. You won’t find any intimidation here; just a great art-filled time for everyone. Check out the Art Now website for more info.
