Place des Arts: Call for Proposals

Deadline: November 3, 2013 (RECEIVE) or (EMAIL) or (HAND DELIVERY)

Call for Proposals
Place des Arts

Coquitlam, BC
2014-2015 Exhibition Season

Place des Arts offers gallery and gift shop display space where local emerging artists and art groups may exhibit and sell their works. Artists living in British Columbia who are not represented by a professional gallery are considered local, emerging artists.

Place des Arts welcomes submissions in 2D and 3D media and techniques including fibre arts, sculpture, painting, photography, prints and drawings; we are not able to accommodate multimedia work at this time.

As Place des Arts is also a teaching arts centre, exhibiting artists are encouraged to offer talks and / or demonstrations during their exhibitions.

Guidelines and Selection Criteria: (truncated)

The Place des Arts Exhibition Committee will review proposals and recommend selected artists based on the following criteria:
• Artworks must be original and recent (created within the past two years).
• Artists must not have exhibited at Place des Arts within the previous three years.
• Artworks must not have previously been exhibited at Place des Arts.
• Quality of artworks (materials, technique, style).
• Originality and creativity (subject matter/media/technique).
• Successful candidates must be able to present work ready to hang (properly framed or stretched with finished sides and properly wired for hanging).

Please note: Place des Arts is a non-profit arts education facility, not a professional gallery. Our mandate is to support local emerging artists by providing exhibition opportunities and exposure.
