Raising the profile of Canadian art by supporting Canadian artists

Art is a voice. And in Canada – where our unique diversity of language, landscape and passion nurtures the creative spirit like few other places on earth – our artists comprise a chorus. Sometimes elegant, sometimes discordant. Through sculpture and paint, video and design software, cameras and conté crayons, the creative are saying something.

Our work is beautiful.

Our work is unsettling.

It explores darkness. It illuminates.

It tells of history, rooted in our land and experience.

It imagines the future, fearsome or dazzling.

In a country so creatively diverse, art is an anthem. The Society of Canadian Artists wants the world to know the tune.
