2020 AFC Exhibit: 3 Week Reminder
Submission Deadline (Extended): May 25, 2020
There are 3 weeks left to submit your artwork for the 2020 AFC Exhibit!


Thanks to everyone who have submitted their work for this year's exhibit and the AFC Festival''s 10th anniversary year. Looking to be another strong one! We remain cautiously optimistic to proceed as planned this October in Vancouver, BC and we have reconfirmed the support of our host - VanDusen Botanical Garden. I'm pleased to say, the gardens opened their gates again last week for a controlled number of visitors and scaled back services. We're also on-track for the subsequent touring exhibit to the James Museum of Western and Wildlife Art in St. Petersburg, Florida next Spring.

A reminder as well, that you have the option to submit art for the book and Virtual Exhibit only, for art that is either unavailable for the live show, or too large, expensive or fragile to ship. We're planning new features on the Virtual Exhibit this year to accommodate those who will not be able to travel due to COVID-19 concerns.
Wishing you safety and good health.

Yours in art and conservation,
