Main & Station Presents The Nonesuch Art On Paper Awards

Main & Station Ltd, an art residency centre located at 168 Main Street in Parrsboro, Nova Scotia, and 141 Ann street in Montreal will be hosting a major International art award and exhibition. Between August 20th and September 10th 2016.
Main and Station Ltd-Nonesuch art centre is housed in the newly repurposed 1913 4-story heritage building that once was home to the town’s post office and custom’s house. We will be hosting an exhibition that will show the many ways of creating art on or with paper. The exhibit will then move to Montreal for another three week period in late September.

The exhibition is the result of a new award created by Main and Station Ltd, “The Nonesuch Art On Paper Awards”. These awards have a value of approximately $20,000 . The Awards comprise 5 individual awards and include an award for sculptural work as well as a People’s Choice award. The awards consist of Art Residency and an honourarium

The awards attracted submissions from 17 different countries, including Argentina, Australia, Estonia, France, Italy, Germany, Israel, Japan and Spain. Over 35 submissions to the awards came from artists living in the Maritime Provinces.

Over 70 works of art will be on exhibit, including drawings, paintings, prints, sculpture, paper-crochet hangings, origami, photography, collage and hand-made books. With over 200 artworks entered in the submissions, choosing only 70 works of art for the exhibition was difficult. The quality of work is exceptionally high and the manner of how paper is used in the creative process is extraordinary.

The awards are a privately sponsored initiative to support the arts and no federal, provincial or municipal government assistance was provided.

The awards are financed by Main & Station Ltd of Parrsboro, Purple Chips/ 7790139 Canada Inc (financial advisors) of Montreal., The Lev Group of companies of Montreal and Parrsboro, Judith S Bauer, Jane Zdansky and John Schwinghamer
