About The 2021 On the Edge Exhibition:


Open to all artists worldwide, this exhibition is for artists working and thinking a little differently. Submitting artists are encouraged to challenge themselves in their practice, challenge their audience or push the limits of your media for the chance to exhibit on a global stage and win prize awards.


Our Partner:







David van Berckel


Opus Art Supplies began as a small picture frame manufacturer in 1974, designing its own frames and stocking framing supplies oriented towards the professional arts community. A great many of the relationships which we established early on have remained, as many of our long-term customers continue to shop with us to this day.

Opus is an independently-owned local business and our company philosophy is ‘small is beautiful’. We have worked hard to develop a community and culture where we can share ideas, develop solutions, and be innovative and passionate. We practice sustainable and earth-friendly options in our buying practices and our business dealings. We donate to our community and help our customers share their stories through our website and a monthly Visual Arts newsletter.

Many of our staff are artists themselves and very knowledgeable about the products and services we provide. We believe we are your best resource when you are looking for creative solutions or materials.

Thank you,

David van Berckel
