This year The Markham Group of Artists invites fellow artists to join them in celebrating the coming of Spring by sharing their favourite creations with the world and using this opportunity to benefit our neighbours in Markham. For this show, MGA has raised the entry fee per artwork to $10 and will donate all proceeds from these fees to The Markham Food Bank.

This show is open to all members and non-members. You are invited to submit up to 5 artworks of your choice. This show will be exhibited on our website’s online gallery from April 1 – May 20, 2023. The show will be promoted on MGA’s Instagram and Facebook sites and local media sites. We encourage all participants to promote the show and their work on their own social platforms. Sales will be the responsibility of the artist and MGA will not take a percentage. If you choose to donate a portion of the sale of your artwork to The Markham Food Bank, please state that in the description of your submission.
