GET OUTTA TOWN: CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS at ARGYLE FINE ART

Hello and Happy Mid-Winter from Argyle Fine Art! As our PRE-SHRUNK show soon comes to a close we are preparing for another group show to open in April. Please find the Call for Submission ONLINE HERE and below.


GET OUTTA TOWN!

We are excited to be preparing for a show about “getting outta town”, hitting the road, skies, seas, hiking trails, beaches….Let this theme be your inspiration! This will be a juried show, as we can’t include as many pieces as we would ever like. The show will be in-person and online too! We’d love to hear from artists from all over Canada and the world and have a virtual map of amazing places to visit and see, through the eyes of the artists! We are interested in both works of art as well as fine art craft or fun paper/ gift type items. Think travel document holders, luggage tags etc….we WILL be able to travel again, sometime. In the meantime, let’s go on a vacation with art, with your help!

With this exhibit we are hoping to take the viewer on a journey to secret places and spaces that you LOVE in your province, town, city etc. It could be a landscape, it could be the view from the car, it could be a camper or tent, it could be an exotic trip to a warmer place….YOU DECIDE. There are no restrictions on size or medium.Maybe you have a favourite roap trip tune or two you’d like to illustrate…think outside the usual!

We would love to have a few works here by March 21st to be here during a streaming virtual show for a local musician we are hosting and would include a few artists to our virtual live chat as a preview, but the full show will open on SATURDAY, APRIL 3rd, 1:30-3:30pm. Therefore the absolute deadline to receive images can be no later than March 20th.

    • We ask that you attach hanging devices (ie wire, hooks, d-rings, etc).
    • If you are working on paper it must be archival and mounted on a sturdy surface that can be hung on the wall or framed.
    • You can work in any medium you chose but consider the size of our gallery and the limitations we may have in that regard. Mid-sized works are always best for displaying and selling.
    • NEW works only please!
    • Submissions must be new and not previously shown.
      • Your name
      • Phone number and email address
      • Titles of pieces and materials used to create the work
