Guidelines

 Please ensure your work follows the LAC's definition of an 'Original Artwork'

Original artwork is created at the hand of the artist who is submitting the work. The creation process must be the effort of a single individual to convey their own personal interpretation of an image or multiple images. Submitting artists are allowed to use reference photos to inspire their work, but artists must use their own design and composition for the final artwork to be considered an original.
If you are submitting a photo medium please ensure the main focal point of the image was taken by the artist and is not a stock image. We do allow stock images to be used in submitted artworks however it must not make up more than 30% of the entire finished artwork.

 Artists can submit up to 3 original artworks that have been created in the last five years, for consideration. Please note all three works may not be accepted. 

 Please submit artwork that has not been exhibited at any of our Art in Found Spaces Galleries; we are looking for new and current artwork to exhibit.

 All artwork must be for sale and must remain until the end of the exhibit.

 Artwork that is purchased can be collected once the show has come to an end.

 Artwork drop-off and pick-up will be coordinated with the Artist and Programming Coordinator once the artist has been accepted, and will be outlined in a contract.

 All artworks must be suitably prepared for display.

Wall-mounted work 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 Programming Coordinator regarding any questions or special considerations before the exhibition).
