small feats 2020

Call for submissions

We’re putting the call out to NAC Member artists to contribute to the weirdest art buying frenzy and spring hip-drop on the Peninsula! NAC’s looking for red-hot art works to sell-off in support of your friendly neighbourhood Artist-run Centre. Once again, we’ll cram the space with work in April, but only the best will be accepted. As per usual, contributing artists choose to donate all or half the proceeds of their work to NAC.

NAC will supply the materials (upon request), either a 12”x12” canvas or hard board, for our slate of Small Feats. All to be sold for $200.

Work on materials other than those supplied by NAC (canvas or Masonite board) such as photos, mixed-media, or works on paper will also be considered. DOWNLOAD THE FORM (available HERE).


We’re also accepting printed works on paper. Pitch us a mock-up, sketch, whatever, and we’ll hand over the keys to NAC’s print studio so you can have the run of the place and start churning out some sweet little printed things (no larger than 12” x 12”) in an edition of 25. Each print will sell for $50. CHEAP! There are bunch of printing options serigraph, etching, lino, and wood block and Risograph!

Send an email to with ‘Hit Print’ in the subject line to get the immediate and particular lowdown.


You must be a member in good standing to participate.
Even if you don’t require materials, let us know if you intend on making work by filling out the form (available HERE) and emailing it to by Friday 1 February before midnight. Please save your form with your name in the file name.




Saturday 1 February 2020 before midnight

Regan Peacock Fung Memorial Art Fund 2019


Travel Assistance for Professional Visual, Media, and Craft Artists
Submissions due Friday 1 November 5PM

Regan Peacock Fung took tremendous joy in the world around her. Her courageous spirit, keen judgment and infectious laughter enriched the lives of those who knew her. Regan’s passing in September 2011, from Chronic Lymphatic Leukemia, was a devastating loss.

Regan had a love of art since kindergarten, when her drawing was published in the children’s section of our newspaper. She pursued her interest in high school and then attended Concordia University, earning a degree in studio art and art history. She had a studio at home and spent her free time, when possible, painting large canvasses. When she became ill, it was her painting that gave her focus and solace. Her art hangs on the walls of family and friends, proof of its enduring importance. We cannot think of a better way to honour her life than through an endowment for Niagara Artists Centre.
– Claudia Peacock

The Regan Peacock Fung Memorial Fund has been established by Regan’s parents, Bob and Claudia, and brother, Erik, to honour her memory and two of the passions that enriched her life: art and travel. Money raised through the fund will provide assistance to professional visual, media and craft artists living in Niagara. Annually, an artist will be awarded $1000 toward their travel expenses artist in Canada or abroad to attend, or participate in, activities related to their work as an artist.
