It's Time For A Fresh Look at the 
Beauty & Emotional Spirit of Canada!

Contemporary art plays an important role in telling the Canadian story so for 2012-13, ARABELLA is looking to create an outstanding collection of current works that examine the emotional power of landscape art in shaping Canadian identity with a full sense of past, present and future.  

The contest is designed to be a great adventure in chronicling the current state of landscape painting in Canada.  Now is the time to re-examine the country with a focus on capturing the full breadth, depth and colour that exists and to be as inclusionary as we can with regard to all communities, peoples and cultures.  Register here...

A Call to All North American* Artists!

This landscape painting contest is open to all North American artists who wish to share their representations of Canadian landscapes, cityscapes, snowscapes and seascapes from coast to coast to coast.

ARABELLA Magazine, published four times a year and circulated throughout North America tells the story of Canada as reflected in its art, architecture and design.  

The ARABELLA Canadian Landscape Contest showcases and celebrates what we have become and what landscapes move us emotionally when thinking about our Canadian communities, provinces, territories and country.

Follow, share, collaborate and celebrate Canadian landscape like never before.  It's now time to see how the country is portrayed and changed through the eyes, the minds and hearts of landscape artists.
