N3XT Art Competition

Cattails in Red, Lake of Bays, Ontario, Canada, 2020

I’m very excited that my piece, “Cattails in Red”, in a large 5 foot wide size, has been accepted into the national Canadian art competition, N3XT, at the historic Arts and Letters Club of Toronto. The theme this year is Canadian Unity.

“A field of cattails in red meander along a snow-covered lake. A state of balance is formed between the negative space of the lake and the positive space of the cattails. Each #cattail symbolizes an individual, and when considered as a whole, shows unity and strength that comes from people — Canadians — working together toward the same goal of fulfilled lives of balance and contentment.”

The N3XT exhibit will be held at the Arts & Letters Club from Thursday, November 19 to Friday, December 18, 2020. On Thursday, November 19, N3XT finalists and awards will be publicly announced during a virtual gala and awards presentation originating from the Arts & Letters Club. The N3XT exhibition will be hosted at the Arts & Letters Club of Toronto until Friday, December 18, 2020.
The N3XT exhibition at the Arts & Letters Club will be accessible by limited groups and by appointment only. A virtual gallery of all N3XT finalists will be hosted online.
