We have made significant changes to our process for purchasing work for the Permanent Collection resulting from process revision and discussions.

SK Arts will have one open call for submissions every other year, with a submission deadline in the summer. In 2023, the submission deadline is July 14, 2023; the following open submission deadline will be in the summer of 2025. As part of the new purchase process, all works under consideration must be made available to SK Arts for an in-person inspection at our offices for the review panel in November/December of the submission year (dates to be confirmed).

In alternate years (starting in 2024), acquisitions will be curated to build the collection in specific areas. Curation may involve an open call to members of a specific community, selecting from recognized bodies of Saskatchewan work, commissions from specific artists, and/or several other methods. Plans for acquisitions in 2024 will be announced on our website by April of that year.

In the coming months, staff will continue to work through our processes for assessing possible donations, which we will now be doing three times each year.


  • Submission Portal Opens: May 15
  • Submission Deadline: July 14
  • Following the 2023 submission deadline, the next submission deadline will be summer 2025.
