Throughout the province of Saskatchewan, adjudications are hosted and funded partly by arts councils, and by the Organization of Saskatchewan Arts Councils (OSAC) through Saskatchewan Lotteries and SaskCulture.
These programs promote the growth of culture by providing opportunities for emerging visual artists and craftspeople to exhibit their work, participate in informational and hands-on workshops and develop critical skills through participating in group and individual critiques with adjudicators. Adjudicators are selected by the arts councils from OSAC’s Visual Arts Resource Manual, a document that lists professional artists, arts educators and curators that are available to offer programming.
Individuals that are noted to be accomplished emerging artists at the adjudication by the adjudicator/s will be invited to submit exhibition proposals to OSAC to be considered for a touring exhibition. Artists will be provided with information on how to develop a proposal by OSAC. Artists must apply by May 1st of every year. Exhibition proposals submitted by adjudicated artists will be juried by a committee of arts professionals. The committee may choose artists’ works based on a solo, two-person, three-person or group show. Artists’ works that are chosen by the committee will tour throughout the province in OSAC’s Arts on the Move program for two years. The touring artists will receive exhibition fees based on the CARFAC minimum fee schedule.
