At the Timms Community Center 'Walkway Gallery'

Guidelines

 This call can only accommodate 2D artworks.

 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 hung for the duration of the exhibition.

 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 original.

 2D 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 the LAC regarding any questions or special considerations before exhibition).


Artwork that will not be accepted
Artworks submitted to the Langley Arts Council must not have been created in an art class, lesson, or paint night.


Application Fee
