Celebrating visual art of the human form / Célébrer l’art visuel de la forme humaine

2018 Figureworks

Figureworks is an international annual juried art prize and celebration of the art of the human form held in Canada’s capital, Ottawa. We believe in being inclusive and accept figurative works in all media from all over Canada and Internationally. Our condition, the work must have a focus on the human form.

Every year we strive to have the best possible jury; one that is balanced in their views and experience, varied in their media, masters of their craft and great storytellers. Meet the 2018 jury.

We hold the Figureworks exhibition at St. Brigid’s Centre for the Arts, a historic church transformed into a beautiful exhibition space right in the heart of Ottawa’s beautiful Byward Market.

We are actively looking for volunteers, if you would like to help please let us know by sending an email to submissions@figureworks.org.
