Juried WCAS Expressions show takes local artist online

CARP – Twenty-six local artists have been selected by an independent jury to participate in this year’s Expressions of Art Online Show and Sale hosted by the West Carleton Arts Society (WCAS).

Expressions of Art, which has been celebrated as a physical art show annually for more than 25 years, will be presented as an online show this year from Oct. 9 to 31. The physical show was cancelled due to COVID-19 concerns. A preview of the online show will be available Sept. 21. A new show website can be found at http://www.wcasonlineshows.ca.

“We have a wonderful cross-section of art in our online show this year,” says show chair Ginny Fobert said. “Our artists represent a variety of media, from oil, acrylic and watercolour, to photography and glass. It is a great representation of local and regional art, with styles that appeal to everyone.”

The three-member jury, independent of WCAS, reviewed all submissions and provided scoring results which determined entrance into the show.

“We are thrilled to welcome back some long-time favourites and are excited to add a number of newcomers to the show,” Fobert said.

Harpist Natalie Hoffmann is providing musical accompaniment for those visiting the show online.
