Calling all Artists and Photographers
Themed Art Contest 2012 from ALFEW and Heritage Mississauga

April 17th 2012

“Capturing Mississauga’s Heritage 2”
Remembering the 175th Anniversary of the Rebellion of 1837

An Art Contest from Heritage Mississauga & ALFEW
(Artists Looking For Empty Walls)

We are inviting artists and photographers to walk in the footsteps of history and to retrace and capture an image from the “Rebel Route” of William Lyon Mackenzie’s escape following the failed Rebellion of 1837.

175 years ago Mackenzie’s flight from authorities took him through historic Mississauga in late December of 1837, following the rebel uprising at Montgomery’s tavern. Mackenzie’s story, and of the Rebellion of 1837, has become a famed part of Canada’s history.

We are asking submitting artists to capture a scene along the route that was taken by Mackenzie through Mississauga; a modern scene or streetscape, nature, a historic house or setting, or an inspiration from the past – anything that might strike your fancy and in any format that you wish.

Completed artwork must be submitted at The Grange, offices of Heritage Mississauga, no later than 4:00 pm on Friday, June 8th, 2012. Prizes will be awarded to the winning entries, and all entries will be part of the ALFEW show “Capturing Mississauga’s Heritage 2: Remembering the 175th Anniversary of the Rebellion of 1837”, which runs from June 19th, 2012 to August 24th, 2012 at The Grange.
