Dozens of artworks are on display at Lipont Place on Route No. 3 this weekend and some of them have been created by young talents from all over the world.

And the youngest is only six years old while the oldest is 21.

These works of art were carefully selected from 557 submissions from around the world, a selection process that was not easy, according to event organizer and artist Maggie Li, who organizes the Canadian Competition. of visual arts for young people for more than five years.

“The theme for this year’s competition is ‘love and care’ and ‘climate change’. We launched a call earlier this year and our jury mailboxes received hundreds of applications within a month,” Li said.

“Each submission tells a compelling story through stunning drawings, paintings, digital art and sculptures. We marvel at the creativity and understanding of the children’s world.

“This work of art shows the love children have for their parents. It captures the simplest moments in our daily lives, but those moments could be beautiful, lasting memories,” Li said.

This year’s judges include Andrew McDermott, President and Fellow of the Federation of Canadian Artists, Canadian artist Danielle Coleman, New York animator and artist Will Colpoys, Maureen-Garvin, Dean of the School of Fine Arts from the Savannah College of Art and Design.

Li said anyone interested in the artwork can purchase it, and all donations will go directly to BC Children’s Hospital.
