The 2021 MARTYS is postponed to June 17, 2021

The increased COVID-19 lockdown measures have forced the Mississauga Arts Council to postpone the Mississauga Arts Awards, also known as The MARTYS from Thursday, May 20, 2021, to Thursday, June 17, 2021, at 7 PM.

Professional artists of Mississauga - how do you mark your growth? 

As children, it was easy, just stand in a doorway and an adult with a pencil marked your progress. 

As a professional artist today, the milestones, the opportunities for critical assessment are few.

In our city the best opportunity for review and consideration, recognition and appreciation are the Mississauga Arts Awards. And, while this is not the perfect setting for such an award, your career is on a trajectory and you owe it to yourself to put your work forward, to have it reviewed and assessed and compared with others, to compete in order to grow, better, faster. 

Be seen, be heard and get in touch with us and we will help you put those nominations together. Sherri's very good. My friends, there's too much good work been done in 2019, too much innovative new work was done in 2020, and we cannot allow it to pass unrecognized and unappreciated!

As usual, it begins with you. Look at your work, look at the work of others who inspire you. Reach out to them and dig into yourself and put it out there. Sherri will help you get it into shape for the nominations committees for the 2021 Mississauga Arts Awards and let's mark this time in terms of creative excellence wherever it occurred.

Please help us to help you. We are your Arts Council.

The Canadian Clay & Glass Gallery is pleased to announce a national open call for submissions from Canadian clay, glass and copper enamel artists for Confined, a national group exhibition. 

In March 2020, Covid-19 brought all of us to a standstill. Many artists didn’t even have access to their studios. As Covid-19 continues to affect us all in our daily life, we invite clay, glass, and copper enamel artists to express in their art what the imposed confinement meant for them. 

Mental health issues, anxiety, financial burden for some, but also time to reflect, conceptualize, create for others, the conflict and diversification of personal and professional life are possible themes…and more. 

Multi-media works and those that incorporate new media within the use of clay, glass, and copper enameling will be considered. The selected works will be presented in the exhibition starting in January 2022. A publication will also be produced. The Gallery will provide an artist fee to the selected artists and cover the costs of shipping and insurance for the duration of the exhibition.

For more information, please see the attached call for submissions, or visit the Gallery's website at
