Place des Arts Call for Exhibitions 2018-2019


Place des Arts


Nov. 5, 2017

Call for Artists Description: 

Place des Arts is currently accepting applications for its 2018-2019 gallery exhibition season.

Place des Arts offers three gallery spaces where local emerging artists and art groups may exhibit and sell their works. Artists living in British Columbia who are not represented by a professional gallery are considered local, emerging artists.

Place des Arts welcomes submissions in 2D and 3D media and techniques including fibre arts, pottery, sculpture, painting, photography, prints and drawings; we are not able to accommodate multimedia work at this time.

As Place des Arts is also a teaching arts centre, exhibiting artists are encouraged to offer talks and / or demonstrations during their exhibitions.
