CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS
Application Deadline: March 31, 2021
Start Date: July 1, 2021
The University of Saskatchewan (USask) Portrait Committee has the opportunity to put forward this Call to Artists for the delivery of a portrait of our Chancellor, Grit McCreath. This portrait will become part of the University collection of paintings of other distinguished members who have served the University.
In the past, portraits have been commissioned in a larger ¾ length, in a traditional style, and are displayed in traditional frames. The final portrait should measure 40” wide x 50” in length. Although all previous portraits have been in oil, other disciplines and mediums may be considered. In consultation with the chosen Artist, the University will approve the supplies and medium to complete this Commissioned Work. As portraits are displayed throughout the university and often outside of environmentally controlled spaces, artists are strongly encouraged to prime their canvas with either artist grade acrylic or oil gesso. The intent of this Call to Artists is to obtain offers to perform the Commissioned Work to complete the portrait as specified in the Contract documents.
