Call for Submissions at Argyle Fine Art:


Call for Submissions closes July 12th, 2019. Show opens Saturday, August 10th at Argyle Fine Art, 1:30-3:30pm


Summer time and late into the Fall is a time of year that Atlantic Canadians take to the parks, their backyards, cottages and get together to share food with one another at picnics and potlucks. Good cheer and recipes are shared. We’d love for you to bring your own ideas to this theme for our summer group show. It can be food based but not necessarily just that. We’re looking for unique works that capture the feeling of the season. All mediums will be considered. This is a juried show and as much as we’d love to include everyone, we have a limited space so have to make decisions on what will work best in our commercial space.


Artists may submit a maximum of 2 pieces.

  • We ask that you have your works gallery ready (meaning a way to hang or display the works in a professional manner or when needed, framed)
  • If you are working on paper it must be archival and framed or mounted. (ask us about options)
  • Works done with materials such as charcoal and pastels must be fixed (ie sprayed) to protect the work.
  • You can work in any medium you chose (ie watercolour, oil, graphite, etc.)
  • We discourage the use of thin canvas or masonite boards as they are not easily wall mountable.
