Call to Artists For Submissions

Neighbourhood Gallery has open calls for shows happening during 2019. We invite and welcome your submissions. Submission details for each show are below, followed by technical specs.

We do not charge a submission fee and take no commission. We do not insure work, but the galleries are in a Unitarian Universalist Church. If the work is sold during the show we take no commission, however being a charitable organization we would gladly accept a donation that could be 10 – 20% of the price of the piece. Donations of $20 or more will be issued a charitable tax receipt. These donations helps to maintain the gallery walls, etc. The Curator will create an invitation and send it to all of the artists and promote the show through Neighbourhood and environs. You are encouraged to invite guests, use your own social media networks and come to the opening and closing. All sales happen directly via the artist therefore preferred contact information will be on a label.

We look forward to your submission(s). The dates below are firm; no exceptions as the schedule is tight.

Group Show: Finding Solace in a Landscape

Works need to be generally less than 2′ in height, 3′ in width. Smaller is better for the space and sale of your work. We can have a few larger pieces as well.
