The Salt Spring National Art Prize 2021/2022 exhibition of Canadian visual art showcased Canadian artists’ ability to examine and help us navigate the most prevalent trends of our time. The exhibition explored how the impact of Covid-19, the climate crisis, reconciliation, cultural and socio-economic diversity, and the deepening of familial bonds influence our individual and collective psyche and cultural identity.
The Salt Spring National Art Prize (SSNAP) was held on Salt Spring Island, BC, in the fall of 2021. A national jury selected 52 finalists based on 2,756 artworks submitted by Canadian citizens and permanent residents. The identity of the artists was anonymous to the jurors.
Associated with the SSNAP exhibition, the Parallel Art Show (PAS) showcased the talent of Southern Gulf Islands’ artists during the SSNAP Finalist event. The PAS jurors selected 51 artworks from Southern Gulf Island artists who submitted to SSNAP.
We extend our gratitude to the Victoria Arts Council in Victoria and the Pendulum Gallery in Vancouver, BC, for supporting our endeavour to advance the public appreciation of Canadian Art.
