Calling all artists! 

Welcome to the 2nd Annual East Gwillimbury (EG) Virtual Art Show!

The Town’s Arts and Culture Advisory Committee are pleased to work with the Town to elevate and enhance opportunities for artistic expression in EG. With the success of 2020’s Virtual Art Show last Fall, the Committee is pleased to continue to feature local artists in the 2nd Annual event! Once again, this virtual version of our art show and sale allows our community the opportunity to view and purchase artwork from a diverse selection of pieces.

Submissions are now open for 2021!
