ProletariArt: The People’s Exhibition

Each year, the Cape Breton University Art Gallery invites artists of all ages and levels of experience to participate in a non-juried community exhibition to celebrate community creativity. More than 135 artists participated in the exhibition last year. We look forward to see new work from returning artists’ and welcome new talent.

Drawing from the concept of the late seventeenth-century Paris Salon, ProletariArt adopts the presentation style of exhibiting artwork floor-to-ceiling. While the original Salon was largely conservative and exclusive to the members of the Academy of Fine Arts, ProletariArt is open to everyone and celebrates amateur, folk, experimental, and avant-garde art in addition to traditional art forms.

Join us in the CBU Art Gallery (Room CE266, in the Great Hall in the Student, Culture, and Heritage building) on Feb 19, from 6-8pm!
