PARK - "Promoting Artists, Redefining Kulture” is a non‐profit network organized by a group of young Calgarian artists.

We’re looking for local talent. Our goal is to promote and support fellow emerging artists in our community so we have teamed up with the chic Wine Bar for a rare visual arts opportunity. Wine Bar is a thriving business located in Kensington, Calgary. Their foods are brought together from the best local farms and producers in the area to bring you fresh and sensational flavours. Now they want to extend their local touch to the art community and fill their walls with sensational artwork.

We are looking for submissions from a visual artist wanting to display their artwork from May through to the end of July, 2012. All styles, mediums and inspirations are welcome. The compilation of work must be able to fill 4 wall spaces within the restaurant and inside 2 single washrooms. Artists are welcomed and encouraged to visit the venue to get a better idea of the space, colours, lighting, available wall space etc.

Your application must include the following information:

  • Images of work to be displayed at Wine Bar
  • Brief statement describing your work or your inspiration for the submission
  • Title, medium, dimensions and price of each piece

Deadline for submissions: Friday, April 20, 2012.

The chosen artist must be available for installation of your work the weekend of April 28/29 and take-down July 28/29 (exact dates and times to be confirmed).

The artist is required to provide his or her own business cards/postcards for promotional and purchasing purposes. As well, Wine Bar has

generously offered to host a reception event for friends, family and art lovers alike to kick off your three month showcase (exact date and time to be confirmed).
