ANNOUNCING REPAINT HISTORY CALL FOR ART
This call is now closed. Stay tuned for the reveal of the fund recipients
We at Repaint History are excited to announce the launch of our new Call For Art with artist funding. This year, Repaint History committed to a total fund of $5,000 (CAD) in the form of four juried Call For Arts to support women artists. In April, we proudly surpassed this goal and we are excited to announce an additional fund of $1,250 CAD as part of this new call.
This artist fund is created with a single purpose – to support women artists by providing them with a financial incentive and publicity.
About the Call:
The Fund: The starting prize in the amount of $2,980 CAD (Increased from $1,250 CAD) will be shared between 4 or more artists (min. $625 per artist). To maximize the number of recipients and the size of the fund, 20% of each application fee will be contributed towards the total prize money. The more submissions we receive, the larger the fund will grow, and more artists will be selected for the prize. So far Repaint History has funded 9 artists with a total fund of $5,100 CAD split amongst these selected artists.
Get Featured: In addition to the fund, the selected artists will be interviewed and featured as part of our popular "Artists We Love" series shared both on our website and social media platforms.

Meet Our Guest Curators:
Shannon Norberg is the partner and co-director of Norberg Hall. From the gallery’s inception (Jarvis Hall Gallery) in 2010, founded by Jarvis Hall, and continuing over the past decade alongside Norberg, they have re-envisioned the possibilities of what commercial contemporary art galleries can be for artists, collectors and the vibrant Canadian arts community they value. Their desire for a strong visual culture and passion for gender equity has played an integral part in the shaping of the Norberg Hall and its programming. Throughout the years, Norberg Hall has actively supported the practices of emerging, mid-career and established artists to foster a deeper understanding of their creative processes, while providing a platform and space to share these critical dialogs. Working alongside artists, curators, museums, institutions, corporate and private collectors, they have proudly helped place work in prominent collections and institutions across the country. Through active representation, ongoing exhibitions, international art fairs, studio tours, and community liaisons, Norberg Hall will continue to champion Canadian art in Alberta and beyond.

Millie Jason Foster
Millie Jason Foster is the co-Director of Gillian Jason Gallery. Outgoing and articulate, with a gift for understanding, Millie guides the gallery’s agile collaborative attitude, working with the historical expertise established by her grandmother, while continuously approaching things through a dynamic start-up mindset. A strategic thinker, she blends her relational approach with market-driven acumen, drawing excitement from emerging markets that, as she puts it, “should have been welcomed into the spotlight long ago and are incredibly important for local artists themselves.” For Millie, female, non-binary, and queer voices hold the power to drive change through the way people see, and in turn how they think: “the art world can’t remotely reflect the kind of equality society should be striving for until it includes artists of all colours and genders as equals rather than as additional considerations.”
