Exhibits & Events - Arts in Our Community Submissions, Exhibits, & Purchase - 1000 Words

We're told a picture is worth a thousand words. What happens when you combine words and images? Back by popular demand, this exhibit is a collaboration between our authors and visual artists. But this year, we are turning it around.

Authors are invited to submit a poem or short story (200 words max). Artists will then create art inspired by one of these pieces.

Deadlines - poem or short story must be submitted by January 13th.
Visual art must be submitted by February 17th.

  • Email submission details including title, price and framed size of pieces to info@southsimcoeartscouncil.com.
  • Submissions must include good quality jpegs, which will be used for curating and promoting the artwork.
  • All work must be wired according to SSAC requirements and ready to hang.
    For more information on hanging requirements, please see southsimcoeartscouncil.com/our-shop/vendor-information/download/framing-criteria-for-ssac.pdf
