Call for Submissions

Do you happen to have any old sketchbooks? Unfinished designs? Scrawled notes on pieces of paper that you’ve kept for years, wondering if you would ever do anything with this idea?


We all know how important sketchbooks are as catalysts for nurturing creativity.  Art in House began when four artists saw a need in our Barrie community to open an accessible space with a focus on artistic process and experience. In each of our kids classes & camps, the upcycled sketchbook has been a connecting point for this. We want to spill this idea onto our gallery!!  Lets celebrate process together at Art in House through a collaborative sketchbook installation.

If you would like to participate, you can drop off your old sketchbooks at Art in House on Wednesday 10-5, Thursday 10-5, Friday 10-2:30, Saturday 10-5

Submission deadline June 5th

Exhibition Opens June 20th.

All ages welcome!!

Not to worry … no sketchbooks will be harmed in the making of this installation!
