University Portraits: Call for Submissions

Application Deadline: April 6, 2018
Start Date: June 1, 2018

The University of Saskatchewan is seeking interest from qualified Artists to commission a portrait of the Chancellor. This portrait will become part of the University collection of paintings of other distinguished members who have served the University.

In the past, portraits have been commissioned in a larger ¾ length, in a traditional style, and are displayed in traditional frames. The final portrait should measure 40” wide x 50” in length. Although all previous portraits have been in oil, other disciplines and mediums will be considered. In consultation with the chosen Artist, the University will approve the supplies and medium to complete this Commissioned Work. The intent of this Call to Artists is to obtain offers to perform the Commissioned Work to complete the portrait as specified in the Contract documents.
