Artist Submissions Welcome for Latest Phase of Public Art Tour Haldimand (PATH)

HALDIMAND COUNTY, ON – Paddle Art Tour Haldimand (PATH) is a celebration of the municipality’s local talent and the importance of the Grand River and Lake Erie to Haldimand County.

Launched in 2021, PATH became a popular activity for Haldimand County residents and visitors to participate in, finding inspiration in the 24 unique designs created by 23 local artists who used wooden paddles—hand made by local high school students—to create art portraying the area’s natural landscapes, wildlife, history and much more.

Building on the popularity of the tour, Haldimand County is inviting local emerging and established artists to submit a sketch and description of an image they would like to paint on one of eight new paddles that will be added to the PATH this year. Each paddle blade is a surface of 28” x 7”and will be installed with the handle upright. Selected artists will receive an honorarium of  $500. The paddles will be installed throughout Haldimand County as we transition public art displays along the Tour.

Interested artists can send submissions: electronically to; in-person or by mail to the Haldimand County Administration Building c/o Community Development & Partnerships, 53 Thorburn St. S., Cayuga, ON  N0A 1E0.

Closing date for submissions is June 16, 2023 at 4:00 pm and selected artists will be notified by June 28, 2023.
