City of Saint John Art Bank Call for Artists

The Saint John Community Arts Board ​is now accepting submissions for the 2023 City of Saint John Art Bank program from individual emerging or professional artists, groups and collaborations, who are residents of the City of Saint John.

The City of Saint John has a large collection of visual art and heritage pieces that have been purchased or donated to the City. This work can be seen within City Hall, as well as various locations throughout the City, including the Saint John Arts Centre, Market Square and the Saint John Free Public Library.

The Art Bank program provides an opportunity for the City to expand on this collection. Proposals for the purchase of paintings, sculptures, limited edition prints and photographs, drawings, fine craft, mixed media, and other related mediums will be considered, with priority to acquire artworks by artists who are not currently in the City’s Art Bank collection.

The City’s art collection includes work by celebrated artists from Saint John including Miller Brittain, Fred Ross, Herzl Kashetsky, and many more.

The Saint John Community Arts Board supports the development and growth of arts and culture within the City of Saint John. Reporting to Common Council, the board is responsible for formulating and recommending policy in regards to investment in the arts. They provide advisory support to the arts and culture sector and encourage community awareness and appreciation of artistic and cultural activities.

The deadline for applications is Monday, December 18, 2023.
