Winter Festival of Art 2020
Opening Reception & Award Ceremony: Friday, February 7th, 2020
Our memories are precious and cherished. Either good or bad, our memories are deeply embodied in our brains and in our hearts. We talk about them frequently with friends and family, with people we share them with and sometimes even with strangers. Some are never shared with others. Those have such deep meaning and impact on us that sharing them would evoke emotions hard to handle. These experiences and memories shape us to become who we are today. The process of gathering memories and evolving through new experiences never ends for as long as we live. We continue to grow and change as the time goes by.
We used to keep photo albums and write diaries to preserve memories. In today’s digital world memories are saved on the Internet and some immediately shared with millions of people. Does that change the meaning of a memory and how we value our most intimate experiences?
For this Winter Festival we would like to invite you to share your most extraordinary memory. Tell us through your artwork about a particular event or a person that you think about again and again. Share with us that precious moment in time that you will never forget. Through the use of colour, texture, line, shape, composition, the use of light – all principals of art making - create a memory that will be different than what is posted on the Internet. Make it more personal and important by creating an art piece about it.
Opening reception and award ceremony will be held on Friday February 7, 2020. All mediums will be accepted. This is Members’ exhibition so valid membership will be a requirement to enter the exhibition. We accept one artwork from each participant, as we want to give equal opportunity for everyone.

The Elsie Savoie Sculpture Park features a wonderful range of contemporary works by Canadian and American artists, situated on the grounds surrounding the Art Gallery of Algoma, alongside the historic St. Mary's River. Among these works are Haydn Llewellyn Davies' Algoma Blue and Andre Dutkewych's Hole In The Sky, both notable pieces in the AGA's Permanent Collection. This outdoor display honours Elsie Savoie's contribution to the Gallery's founding and its ongoing operation as a key cultural destination on Sault Ste. Marie's beautiful waterfront.
