Refresh Project

Save Article Share Tweet

Artists seeking a reinvigorated project are invited to respond to Wyatt Heritage Properties Inc’s call for submissions to its Refresh project. Refresh is about creating a sculptural piece with recycled material scrounged, hoarded, bartered or gifted. The work of art will be placed on display on downtown Water Street during the Summerside Arts Festival, July 22 to 24. Wyatt Heritage Properties Inc presents the festival through funding from the Department of Canadian Heritage.

The free standing work must be at least five feet in height and two feet in width. The only new material that can be used in the creation is adhesives. The work must be able to stand up to the outdoor elements for its time in the spotlight, and create no safety concerns.

Submissions will be accepted up until May 15. Artists chosen to participate will be contacted by May 31. Interested artists are asked to include in their submission, 3 to 5 images of previous works, outline of proposed project, sketches, and dimensions. Maquettes are welcomed. Artist statement regarding the prosed piece is required. Submissions can be emailed to or dropped off at the Lefurgey Cultural Centre, 205 Prince Street, Summerside. Find details at or
