The Sunnyside Beach Juried Art Show and Sale is an annual show held at the Sunnyside Pavilion in Toronto, September 9, 10 and 11. The three-day art event is an opportunity to show your work both to persons with a strong interest in the arts and to collectors who are willing to purchase works in a variety of styles.
The festival provides a showcase for up-and-coming and established artists, and features painting, drawing, photography, and sculpture, alongside live music and art performances.
The event is free and open to the public. All sales are commission-free. The first place juried art show winner receives $1,000 in prize money, as chosen by a qualified committee of gallery owners and recognized art critics. There is also a People’s Choice Award, a $500 cash prize. In addition, all artists are included in the official show catalogue.
