Much of our purpose at the Guelph Creative Arts Association is to nurture and work toward keeping the spirit of the visual arts alive and well in Guelph and surrounding areas. To do that, we strive to provide event and learning experiences for all to enjoy.

SPRING replaces "Painting on the Green", which was our annual signature show that began in 1960 and was the forerunner of outdoor art shows in Canada.

SPRING continues to be a show open to everyone that allows novice and eperienced visual artists to showcase their talents together. Entries are not juried for acceptance, but a juror selects the winners for each category.
