Call For Submissions
2017 represents the 150th anniversary of the confederation of Canada, a solidifying moment in the history of this country. Along the timeline that connects us to that moment on 1 July, 1867, this anniversary is the fulcrum between past and future. It is a time for celebration and a time for sober reflection. It is the conjunction of experiences and a tale to which there is always another side. And… is the acknowledgment of a familiar story, but more importantly a device with which to add to it and consider what comes next. And… invites the celebration of this milestone And… a robust examination of a past more prosperous for some than for indigenous peoples and immigrant populations. It aspires to look at the accomplishments and the failures of the last 150 years and take stock of the present so that we might honour the foundations on which confederation was built by forging a stronger tomorrow. In this context Two Rivers Gallery is seeking artists from across BC working in any media to respond to this call with three to six artworks produced within the last three years in order to add perspectives to this anniversary and reflect upon the future.
Complete this form and send it along with some information about yourself and the work you do, and images of up to six artworks. The Gallery will notify those whose work is selected for exhibition. Artists whose work is selected will receive an exhibition fee.
SUBMISSIONS MUST BE RECEIVED NO LATER THAN 4PM, 20 NOVEMBER, 2016.
