Showcase 2020


Showcase
 2020 CANCELLED !!

While the OSAC staff and Board of Directors were trying to delay this decision as long as possible, it has become obvious that a gathering of 250 people with artists and agents travelling from across the country was not going to be possible this October. The health and safety of the OSAC membership, Board members and staff, along with our hotel, venue, and supplier partners, and of course the artists and agents we work so closely with, are paramount and this decision was reached with those values in mind.

Showcase 2021 will occur in Regina October 15 – 17, 2021 with Showcase 2022 returning to Saskatoon.

The OSAC staff are hard at work planning events that can occur virtually, and we hope to have news about these plans as we approach the Fall. We will be in touch shortly with the artists and agents who applied for Showcase regarding their applications and those Visual Arts organizations and artists who were slated to be part of Showcase 2020.
