All Canadian contemporary art submissions for Art With Heart are considered by an independent curatorial committee, comprised of artists, gallery representatives, art collectors and art buying professionals. This committee selects the artwork for the 2020 collection. Casey House staff does not participate in the curatorial process and remains at arm’s length to this committee of experts. In addition to gallery submissions, the committee accepts independent submissions directly from artists.
