The 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 firstname.lastname@example.org. 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.
