NEWS RELEASE
180 PROJECTS
***********************
Here at 180 Projects, we LOVE animals and we know you do too!

180 Projects invites all members of the Sault Ste. Marie and Algoma Community to enter artworks for our first community fundraising event Animal Nature.  

Funds raised by the exhibition will go to support Sault Ste. Marie Humane Society, The Animal Assistance Group, Wires Australian Wildlife Rescue Organization, and 180 Projects. The exhibition will run from Feb. 21 to March 7 with a Gala opening reception on Feb. 22, 7-9 p.m.

We are seeking artwork and crafts of or about pets and animals. Any and all mediums of artwork can be submitted, and artists can be of any age. Artwork can be dropped off at 180 Projects, 180 Gore Street on the following days:

  • Feb. 15 from 2:30 to 5 p.m.
  • Feb. 17 from 2:30 to 6:30 p.m. 
  • Feb. 18 from 2:20 to 7 p.m. 

Contact us at oneeightyprojects@gmail.com for more information or if you need to arrange an alternate drop-off time. 

To enter your work in the exhibition, become a member of 180 Projects for $10. If the membership fee is prohibitive for you just let us know and we can find a solution. We want everyone who wants to participate to be able to be part of the exhibition.

Half of the membership fee will be donated to Wires Australian Animal Relief Efforts. Your 180 Projects membership will allow you to participate in community group exhibitions and will get you on our mailing list for upcoming events throughout the year. The membership fee can be paid via cash or cheque when dropping off artwork and the registration form for the show can be filled out at the link above or in person at the time of drop off. 

Proceeds from sales of artwork in the exhibition will be divided between local animal assistance groups; Sault Ste Marie Humane Society, The Animal Assistance Group, and 180 Projects. Artists can choose to receive half of the proceeds from the sale of their work or can choose to donate the full amount. The number of works artists can submit is unlimited!

A number of workshops will also take place throughout the duration of the exhibition including Screen Printing on T-Shirts, Making Nests and Cloth Pouches for Australian Animals, and more. Workshops will be accompanied by visiting pets from the SPCA and TAAG. Registration in the workshops is by donation and all proceeds from the workshops will be donated to the Wires Australian Animal Relief Efforts. Check out our Facebook page here for more details on Animal Nature Workshops!

180 Projects is an alternative art centre based in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario. We are dedicated to presenting exhibitions, events and programs that promote discourse on and exposure to a wide range of contemporary and experimental art practices. We do this by acting as a link, a host and a catalyst: connecting artists/cultural workers and communities locally and regionally to those

elsewhere in Canada, and internationally; and providing a supportive, inclusive environment for local and visiting artists/cultural workers at all stages of their careers.
