We had planned to hold a large anniversary celebration in September to mark this occasion - to gather and celebrate art in our community.

Please note that the following changes have been made:
Contest Kits will be available for purchase until August 31, 2020.
Contest Paintings must be returned to the store no later than September 4, 2020 by 5:00PM.
Paintings will be showcased for physical, in person - individual viewings at Picaroons Roundhouse (912 Union Street, Fredericton) starting the week of September 14, 2020 and will remain up until the end of September. Viewing the artwork should be done with "bubble families" and in accordance with Picaroons operating procedures and guidelines.
We will launch an online gallery of the contest pieces on our website that so anyone anywhere can view your artwork at anytime!

25th Anniversary Contest at Endeavours & ThinkPlay - ACRYLIC
Dear Friends of Endeavours & ThinkPlay,
It has been 25 years, 6 different locations, and countless great friendships made at our local independent art supply store! 2020 marks our 25th anniversary here at Endeavours, and we need your help to celebrate! We want to celebrate high quality, locally sourced art materials and artwork by bringing you our 25th Anniversary Painting Contest - all with Made in Canada products. Our 25th Anniversary Contest will have three categories this year - Acrylic, Oil, and Watercolour - and you are invited to participate in each category.
Starting February 1, 2020, Contest Kits will be available for purchase. Each Acrylic kit includes: one 12” x 12” Apollon Gotrick Gallery Canvas, made in Montreal; and the participant’s choice of any two Emotions Extra-Fine Artist’s Acrylic By Demco - Pre-Release sample paint, made in Montreal. Kits are $25.00 plus HST for this contest.
Each participant will only use the contents of one 25th Anniversary Acrylic Painting Contest Kit and their own brushes (no limit) to create a painting of their choice for submission. We will only allow one submission per person, per category; however, participants may submit one acrylic, one oil, and one watercolour piece to each contest. Kits will continue to be sold until August 31, 2020. All submissions to be entered into the contest must be submitted in store by 5:00pm on September 4, 2020. Please do not sign the front of your painting for this contest as this would disqualify your piece from a fair competition. Winners will be announced online on Friday September 25, 2020.
Submissions will be judged by a panel of Endeavours staff members and artists in New Brunswick.
The submission judged to be first place will receive a prize of $500 worth of art supplies from our store and the honour of having their artwork displayed in the Endeavours store window following the 25th Anniversary Virtual Gallery. Two runners up will also be awarded art supplies from Endeavours & ThinkPlay.
People’s Choice Award:
Our community gets to vote! We will be awarding a prize to the painting that receives the most votes leading up to the evening of the 25th Anniversary Event!
Thank you for participating in our 25th Anniversary Acrylic Painting Contest!
