The Partners in Art Initiative is a program at The Royal that recognizes artistic talent. Its purposes are to:
The Partners in Art Initiative Committee welcomes artwork from clients, staff, volunteers of The Royal and its partners.
Art is displayed in several designated areas for both long- and short-term periods. You can help us grow by submitting your artwork, volunteering on the committee, purchasing artwork or donating to the Bursary Fund.
A percentage of the proceeds from each sale goes to the Partners in Art Initiative Bursary Fund. This fund is used to assist artists by helping to pay for education or supplies. Contact the Committee or read for information below to learn more.
Artwork can include the following: sketches, paintings, prints, sculptures, tapestries and photography. There are restrictions on the size of the art you can submit. Graphic depictions of violence or pornography will not be considered. An artist may have no more than two pieces on display at any time. A separate committee will decide, through the jury process, which works will be accepted for display.
Each year, a call for art will be issued in the winter, summer and fall. Each artist may submit two pieces of art. Maximum size for each piece is no larger than 18 x 24 inches or 432 square inches. Entries must be properly labelled (title, media, artist’s name, price) and ready to hang; assuring that framework is stable and secure.
