Call for Artists Description: 

Deer Lake Gallery is inviting applications from artists for exhibitions in all media for 2017. Deadline for applications is Friday, September 30, 2016.

The 2017 Call is open to everyone. Professionals as well as emerging artists are encouraged to enter. The only limitation is that you must not have shown at our gallery in the last 2 years (in a solo exhibition) and that entries must represent original works of art. The Gallery reserves the right to decide which artists will be allotted solo shows, and which artists will share the space in a Group Exhibition. We encourage the inclusion of a community component in the form of workshops, demonstrations, artist talk or other community involvement strategies. There is no size restriction, other than what can fit through our doors or hang on our walls.

The juried selection committee, comprised of artists from the community and headed by the Deer Lake Gallery’s Executive Director, juries the submissions and artists are notified of the outcome in November.
