Shaping Alberta: call for submissions

Date: Dec 14, 2018

Deadline: Apr 5, 2019 - 4:00 pm

We invite all CARFAC Alberta artist members from all parts of the province to submit images to Shaping Alberta. 

CARFAC Alberta is interested in exhibiting the work of artists who - through the creation of art - communicate, influence and build creatively vibrant and connected visual arts communities we live and work in. 8 to 10 artists will be chosen.

All subject matter, styles and techniques are welcome — as long as the work is 2 dimensional and can be hung with D-rings from a track: 

Textile . Digital + Photographic . Printmaking . Painting . Drawing . Mixed Media

It is an excellent opportunity to exhibit your work in a group exhibition and have your work seen in Calgary and Edmonton!

Two exhibition venues: 

In Calgary, from early September to mid-October, 2019 and in Edmonton, from mid-October to the end of November, 2019. Actual exhibition dates TBA. The work will be exhibited at the Jubilee Auditorium in Calgary (South) and Edmonton (North). Exhibiting artists will receive a nominal artist fee.
