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.

 Please submit original artwork that has been created in the last five years. 

 The exhibiting artist cannot submit to the same venue for two consecutive exhibition years (this excludes group shows organized by the Langley Arts Council). 

 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. 

 Artworks submitted to the Langley Arts Council must not have been created at an art class, lesson, or paint night.
