Call to Artists
Support for emerging artists is at the heart of Timeraiser150. How do we foster the next generation of arts patrons while valuing Canadian artists? By paying fair market value, set by the artist, for every artwork we auction. In addition, each of the Timeraiser150 parties, along with Online150, provides an opportunity for exposure to potential patrons and media outlets.
Online150 is an online extension of Timeraiser150. Through Online150 Canadians from coast to coast can trade volunteer hours for an original piece of art. Volunteer hours can be completed with any nonprofit organization in the community. Artists are paid for their work, nonprofits find skilled volunteers, Canadians find meaningful volunteer opportunities. Are you an emerging artist wanting to submit your artwork to Online150? Fill in the form below to be considered. If your artwork is selected, Framework Foundation will send you a contract and payment electronically and your art will be made available on the Online150 platform.
Online150 call open.

"Timeraiser has an unparalleled ability to provide exposure and financial support to serious up-and-coming artists.
