Gallery 110’s annual juried exhibition showcases work by emerging and established artists, chosen from hundreds of applications by this year’s juror: Jaimie Isaac.

Jaimie Isaac is a curator and interdisciplinary artist based in Canada. In 2021, she was appointed Chief Curator at the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria, having previously served for several years as the Indigenous and Contemporary Arts curator at the Winnipeg Art Gallery. She is a member of the Sagkeeng First Nation in Treaty 1 Territory, and of mixed European ancestry.

The 13th Annual International Juried Exhibition will be on display at Gallery 110 from February 2 – 25, 2023. The juror will award first, second and third place prizes of $1000, $500 and $300. There will also be a People’s Choice Award of $200, voted on by visitors to the gallery’s First Thursday opening (2/2/23). The gallery is open to the public from 12PM to 5PM on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays and by appointment. Visit us during the Pioneer Square First Thursday Art Walk on February 2nd from 4-8PM.

The 13th Annual International Juried Exhibition‘s reception and juror’s award announcements will be February 3, 2023, from 4-5:30pm. Invitations to the reception can be requested from director@gallery110.com

The 13th Annual International Juried Exhibition explores notions of sovereignty and liberation in political, social, and cultural contexts. A wide range of possibilities are broadly encountered and examined. The artists grapple with and respond to both histories and the present moment with individual perceptions of the world, seeking to define the spirit of the times. Artistic impulses form expansive and articulated reflections on the health crisis, environmental injustices, eco-anxiety, gender, reproductive and racial oppression, and systemic violence and disenfranchisement. They honor the courage of enduring resistance and liberation movements, migrations, and activism.

Collectively and individually, the artwork chosen explores relationships between past and present-day social, political, environmental, and cultural complexities that both unite and divide nations. The focus on liberty and sovereignty assisted the decision to gather together multiple voices, perspectives, disciplines, contrasting and diverse responses – deriving from the agency of the artists submissions.

My gratitude and acknowledgment to hold these conversations on the traditional land of the Coast Salish people – specifically the ancestral land of the Duwamish, Suquamish, Stillaguamish, and Muckleshoot People past and present.
— Jaimie Isaac, Chief Curator Art Gallery of Greater Victoria
