Childrens Holiday Art Showcase

The Nanaimo Art Gallery, 150 Commercial Street location, is inviting submissions for a Childrens Holiday Art Showcase. There are three age categories for children aged 5-8, 9-12, and 13-16. The theme is “What does the holiday season mean to you?” Entries should be submitted on 8 1/2 X 11 inch white paper or card stock. They can be drawings or paintings. The child’s name, age, and contact information must be listed on the back.

Entries will be accepted until November 20, 2010, at either gallery location (150 Commercial Street and 900 Fifth Street, Building 330). All work will be displayed in an exhibition in the downtown gallery for the month of December, 2010. There will be a fun prize for the winner of each age category.
