Art Procurement Program

The Town of Riverview's Art Procurement Program aims to improve the appearance of our public buildings, promote local talent, and contribute to the economic success of artists in our community. 

2024 Summer Art Exhibit

The Town of Riverview invites local artists to submit their work for the fourth annual Art Exhibit organized by the Town of Riverview Art Procurement Committee and held at the Riverview Public Library. We would like to thank the Riverview Public Library for allowing us to display up to 40 pieces of artwork for this Summer Exhibit which will take place from June 25 – July 24, 2024. The citizen-led committee may also select and purchase artwork on the Town’s behalf to add to the Town’s art collection.

The Artist Submission Form can be completed online, or can be picked up at the Library or the Parks and Recreation Office, 55 Biggs Drive. Forms must be received by 4:30 p.m. on June 14, 2024, and must meet the requirements in the Art Procurement Program (APP) Policy. Artwork must be dropped off at the Riverview Public Library, 34 Honour House Court, on Thursday, June 20 between 4- 6 p.m.

Eligibility

  • To apply, artists must be Riverview residents and must have been a resident for at least twelve consecutive months. Artist eligibility is not reliant on an artist’s professional status but rather on the artwork. No work by any member of the APP jury or their immediate family will be considered for purchase.

Art acquisition

  • The Town of Riverview will select artwork to purchase from works submitted for this call. The artwork must be deemed appropriate for the Town’s collection based on the selection criteria established by the APP policy. The artwork will be displayed in Riverview Town Hall’s Council Chambers for up to two years following acquisition and then may be relocated to another Town-owned public building.

Submissions

  • Each artist may submit one piece of work. Artwork must be original, be suitably framed, and be ready to hang. Art that is not accompanied by the APP application form will not be considered.

Artwork drop-off

  • Artwork must be dropped off to the Riverview Public Library on Thursday, June 20 between 4 – 6 p.m. Submissions will not be accepted after this date and time. The artist is responsible for unpacking their artwork and taking packaging with them. Following the exhibit, the artist is responsible for re-wrapping the artwork upon pick-up, Thursday, July 25 between 4 – 6 p.m.

Acceptance

  • Artists whose artwork is selected for purchase by the Art Procurement Committee will be notified by telephone by June 25.

Artwork pick-up

  • Artwork must be picked up on Thursday, July 25 between 4 – 6 p.m. at the Riverview Public Library. The Town of Riverview is not responsible for any artwork not picked up at this time.

Interested artists with questions about the Art Procurement Program are welcome to contact Paulette Tingley at 506-387-2032 or ptingley@townofriverview.ca.
