CanvasOnEaselSilverbleeThe Cultch, 1895 Venables Street, has put out a call to visual artists who live and work in BC to submit applications to exhibit their work during their 2017/2018 gallery season. Each exhibition will run for 3 to 4 weeks between August 2017 and June 2018. Submissions can be single or multiple artists’ proposals.

The Cultch has built a reputation over the past 40 years as one of Western Canada’s most innovative and exciting presenting venues. The mandate of The Cultch is to contribute to the enrichment of the city and community’s social and cultural life through the presentation of innovative programs of contemporary music, theatre, dance and visual arts by established and emerging artists.

The Cultch Gallery is a multi-use space and not a traditional art gallery as it also serves as the lobby for performances and is occasionally used for meetings and other small events. Due to the diverse nature of their space, submissions that include sculptures or free standing art will not be accepted. We have set out below the submission criteria for artists:

1. An artist statement;

2. Resume/CV with contact information;

3. A complete list of images you are submitting, which should include title, size, medium. These images do not have to be the work you will be showing. They want to get a good overview of your work.

4. You can submit up to 10 images.   Note: Images should be 300 dpi and no bigger than 8″ in any direction

Deadline for applications is Monday, May 15, 2017.  If you have questions about your submission, you can contact Yuri Arajs, Gallery Coordinator at The Cultch at gallery@thecultch.com. Artists will be notified in June on the results of the selection process. The Cultch handles all sales and retains a 20% commission on all works sold.

2 Sep

BroadwayEastArtWalkSept.28th

A group of neighbours in the Mount Pleasant area have been leading a charge to create an Art Walk in the Broadway East area. A number of businesses along the Broadway corridor between Prince Edward and Prince Albert will be providing some exhibition space within or outside of their premises.  A small scale pilot Art Walk was held on June 8th with great success. So this September 28th, they will be doing a large scale Art Walk.  The goal of the initiative is to bring new life to this area while supporting the local arts with the theme being Art in Unexpected Places. They are looking for bold artists in a variety of mediums including: paint, short film, sculpture, performance, temporary installation, balloon artists, sidewalk chalk artists, eco artists, window painting/decoration, you name it. The field is wide open.   If are interested in submitting your art, submit your contact information and 1 – 2 samples of your work or a link to your portfolio to: broadwayeastartwalk@gmail.com with the subject line “Broadway East Art Walk”. Note: all ages are welcome, in any degree or ability.  Deadline for submitting your expression of interest is September 10th. 

If you are not an artist, but would like to participate in this fabulous event, they are also on the hunt for volunteers, drop them an email at the address above.
