About The Wall

Each year, as part of the 5 Artists 1 Love Art exhibit, we have a special section called ‘'The Wall'. The Wall is always dedicated to a theme. Past themes included “There goes the Neighbourhood”, “The Civil Rights Movement”, “AfroPunk”, and 'Some of my Best Friends Are Black.'

2024 Theme

This year, our theme is "Started from the Bottom, Now We’re Here”.' It's about progress, a journey, or growth, inspired by the 2013 song by Hip Hop artist Drake. “The Bottom” signifies a starting point, the lowest part, and “Here” could be anywhere along the journey —  not necessarily the top.

We invite you to share your thoughts on this theme by creating a painting on a 12x12 canvas with a 2-inch width. Show us what this phrase means to you!  Once done, your artwork will be displayed at the prestigious Art Gallery of Alberta. We value and encourage public participation, so this is a chance for your voice and creativity to be heard and seen.

The final date to deliver artwork for the wall is January 4, 2024. To participate in The Wall, email us at with your contact info!

This year all submissions, from paintings, photography to print will be hung with the rest of the show at the Art Gallery of Alberta, AGA. (must adhere to canvas dimensions).
