Creating For Change Open Call
'Creating For Change' focuses on the current social issues many of us face in varying degrees i.e. racism, homophobia, sexism, poverty, climate change, and many more. We hope to find solutions to these societal issues, together. This exhibit brings to light how we all may encounter and grapple with these injustices, yet experience them differently. Such differences include one’s race, gender, sexual orientation, abilities, financial status, etc. We encourage and invite members
of the BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, Persons of Colour), 2S/LGBTQIA+, disabled, low-income, and other marginalized communities to apply.
Exhibition Dates: June 18th - August 18th
Submission Deadline: Monday, May 31st, 2021
Please see the information below to apply to this Open Call.
Specifics for this call:
This is an OPEN CALL meaning all 2D and 3D artists are welcome to apply.
This will be an in-person exhibition, 2D and 3D works that will be on display at the Aldergrove Kinsmen Community Centre 'Main Hall' Gallery as well as the AIFS Online Gallery.
Artists are welcome to submit 3 artworks for consideration and will receive a notice via email about the status of their submission after the show's submission deadline.
All artworks must be for sale, and any sales that take place during the duration of the exhibition must be facilitated through the LAC.
All artworks must remain on display for the duration of the exhibition.
We are encouraging short write-ups to be hung alongside the artwork if the artist chooses.
Please note all exhibitions, even brick and mortar, will be posted online for the duration of the show. If for any reason the show cannot take place at the Aldergrove Community Centre, it will be held online at the AIFS Online Gallery at Langleyarts.ca.
For 2D Artworks
All artwork must be suitably prepared for display. Artworks must be appropriately framed or stretched with finished sides and properly wired for hanging, using d-hooks and wire.
The D hooks should be 4” from the top of the frame or 1/3 of the height of the frame. The stretched wire should be 2” below the top of the frame.
The Langley Arts Council reserves the right to refuse any piece. Work not properly prepared may not be exhibited (consult with Gallery Director regarding any questions or special considerations before exhibition).
Photographing your Artwork
We've provided two resources for artists on how to successfully photograph their artwork. Since this is a digital platform it is imperative to have good quality images. These resources should help you to achieve that.
"How to Photograph a Painting, Step by Step" by Artists Network Staff
"How to Document Your Artwork with Jannette Maedel" by the Surrey Art Gallery
The Langley Arts Council takes a 30% commission on all artwork sales in our brick and mortar galleries. Since this exhibition will be online as well as in one of the AIFS Brick-and-Mortar galleries there will be a 30% commission taken on sales.
