Exhibition Opportunity

Fish Creek Environmental Learning Centre

Exhibition Opportunity

Two-month blocks of time are currently available for January/February, March/April and September/October.  A submission fee is required of $75 for a solo show or $100 for a group show.  We provide advertising and an opening reception on a date we work out with you for sometime during each exhibition.  Work in all media is welcome but, if visual, we do require it to be wall-hung; if you propose an exhibition of sculptural work, for instance, you must be able to provide plinths.  You may also propose an exhibition of performance art such as spoken word, dance, music, drama, etc.  It's not usual, but we'd work it out.

If this interests you, please send me a short proposal (no more than 200 words) outlining the theme of your show, number of people involved OR proposed number of pieces included, proposed medium, three images of the proposed work (no more than 1200 pixels in any direction) and the block of months you'd like.  We'll prefer proposals from people who haven't shown here before but otherwise it's basically first come first served.  Please note that we do review the work to make sure it is appropriate for children to view.  And we tend to choose art that works for the setting of Fish Creek Provincial Park (eg. nature, conservation, park-within-city, environmental issues, that kind of thing) but are interested in hearing your outside-of-the-box ideas.
