How to Submit your artwork

Brush with Art accepts the following:

  • 2-dimensional work (drawings, paintings, prints, etc.)
  • Low-relief 3-dimensional work that can hang on a wall
  • free-standing sculpture cannot be accepted as we do not have appropriate venues for such work at this time.

Please note: The Fine Arts faculty co-ordinators normally make all curatorial decisions. The co-ordinators consider the appropriateness of subject matter and design of the works vis-à-vis the venue.  More specific details about the program can be found in the Record of Submission form - 2019 (PDF) .

Submitting non-digital work:

  • Contact Joan Coutu at joan.coutu@uwaterloo.ca or leave the work and the Record of Submission Form with Jean Stevenson in the Visual Resources Centre (ECH 1216) beside the main office in Fine Arts.
  • The submission must be accompanied by the completed Record of Submission form - 2019 (PDF) .
