How does colour inspire art? Mendel Youth Council seeks submissions that explore, or are inspired by, the colour blue. Follow your own interpretation of this idea and share your creativity. We’re excited to see what you will do with blue!
Want to submit your art?
All forms of art will be considered, including sculpture, paintings, drawings, photographs, etc. Bring your submissions to the Mendel Art Gallery between 5:30 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. on Wednesday, March 27.
Want to perform?
MYC also seeks performers – musicians, actors, poets, DJs, performance artists – to perform at the exhibition reception Friday, April 12. How might you be inspired by blue and express it in your art form? To apply, email a brief description of your idea, and video or audio links if you have them, to email@example.com.
The deadline for all submissions is Wednesday, March 27, 2013.
A public reception will be held on Friday, April 12, at 7:30 p.m.
Enjoy refreshments, live performances, and art. Admission is free. Everyone is welcome.

What is this all about?
Mendel Youth Council is offering an opportunity for Saskatoon youth to present their creativity in a gallery setting. MYC welcomes submissions that connect in some way to the colour blue. Stretch your imagination and see what you come up with!
Due to space limitations, sculptural work must be smaller than 18 inches in any direction. Two-dimensional work should be framed. Large works may be able to be displayed without a frame. The artwork is not insured. The Mendel Art Gallery will take precautions to exhibit all pieces as safely as possible in the auditorium space.
Who can be in the exhibition?
Mendel Youth Council is seeking submissions from high-school-aged artists from Saskatoon and area. Last year’s exhibition was a huge success, so this is your chance to be part of MYC’s great programming!
How can I submit my work and have it returned?
The deadline for submissions is Wednesday, March 27, 2013 between 5:30-7:00 p.m. (Works will not be accepted outside of this time.) Bring your labeled submissions with your contact and label information to the Mendel Art Gallery. There is no limit to the number of works an artist may submit. All artists will be notified within several days whether or not works are accepted.
Unsuccessful submissions must be picked up on Tuesday, April 2 between 1:00-4:00 p.m.
All exhibited artwork must be picked up following the exhibition on Wednesday, April 24 between 7 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. It is important that works are picked up at this time, as the gallery lacks storage space.
What is Mendel Youth Council?
Mendel Youth Council is a group of students from high schools across Saskatoon who have a passion for art. They meet bi-weekly at the Mendel to identify, organize, design, and market events and programs for other youth. Members gain unique art experience in a gallery setting, and provide a voice for young people in the art community in Saskatoon. Interested in joining?
