Thames Art Gallery Eye 4 Art Returns

Local artists are in the spotlight as the Thames Art Gallery invites all CK artists to submit their best work for this entertaining and high-profile event.

This premier local art competition is ready to roll after a prolonged pandemic hiatus. Whether you are an artist, a collector, or someone looking to get to know CK’s creative community better, this is an exhibition and an event welcoming to all. The Eye 4 Art exhibition runs from November 18 – January 14, with a gala opening on November 18.

Artists will compete for prize money donated by local sponsors with awards to be announced on November 18 as part of the opening festivities. CK’s own Scott Everingham will assume the mantle of exhibition juror this year. 

 “Scott Everingham has earned an international career as a painter, and exemplifies the potential and talent that Chatham-Kent produces,” says gallery curator Phil Vanderwall. “We’re always excited to see who will step forward, and this exhibition is here to celebrate homegrown creativity at its finest”

In addition to filling the spaces of the Thames Art Gallery with artwork of all sorts, Eye 4 Art is an opportunity for the arts community to shine and for the community to engage and support. All work in the gallery will be for sale and a variety of entertaining events are planned to raise funds in support of TAG’s Community Arts Initiative ARTspace.

This is a juried exhibition and participating artists are asked to fill out the Call for Entry Forms now available on the gallery’s website. In addition, detailed information about how you can become a sponsor, donate or volunteer is also available by contacting the Thames Art Gallery at
