People's Portrait Prize will return in 2020
People’s Portrait Prize 2017 was the inaugural and first annual exhibit of portraits by artists from Calgary and the surrounding area. A call was put out to Calgary and area artists to submit their portraiture and figurative artworks. The response was astounding. With 150 artists and over 250 artworks, the hallways at cSPACE King Edward were filled.
The aim of People's Portrait Prize is to promote the genre, and to showcase the vast amount of artistic talent that can be found in the Calgary arts community.
