There are three initial types of memory; sensory, short-term, and long-term. Some memories can last a lifetime, others linger for only a few seconds... We use memories to learn, reflect, and share, to enrich our lives and grow closer together. Memories are an essential part of being human.
This open call invites artists to reflect on their memories and the concept of memory itself through their work
March 12th to May 20th
Deadline: February 22nd/2021
Please read before filling out the Online Application.
This is an OPEN Call.
The LAC welcomes all artists at any stage of their career to submit artwork to this call. We are also open internationally to submissions.
Artists can submit a maximum of three artworks to be considered for each online call.
Artists will be sent an email regarding the status of their submission after the exhibition deadline; it may take up to one week to review all of the applications by the juror. We will notify everyone regarding the status of their application once all artwork has been considered.
Please be aware that when applying for an Online Exhibition the artwork you have submitted MUST be for sale and MUST be reserved for sales for the duration of the exhibition and not sold elsewhere. All artwork for sale on langleyarts.ca will be priced in CAD dollars.
Photographing your Artwork
Please keep in mind that the AIFS Online Gallery will be using the photograph you submit here for our online gallery.
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
For members of the Langley Arts Council, their Online Submissions are FREE. For non-members of the Langley Arts Council in order to be considered for an Online Exhibition, the artist must pay the submission fee (the submission fee is non-refundable). All fees go towards the making of the AIFS Online Gallery and to fund more online exhibition projects like this one.
