THE GUILD IS SEEKING PROPOSALS FROM PROFESSIONAL PEI ARTISTS.
We are interested in progressive, forward-looking practices; inventive approaches in artistic production; work that deals with issues of current social urgency, including diverse perspectives and histories; and work based on an articulate conceptual and/or critical and/or poetic thesis. We encourage and facilitate the presentation of curatorial and artistic works that have not yet been exhibited in this locale. We are enthusiastic about artists’ most recent endeavours and art forms that propel contemporary production and incite conversation.
Exhibitions will be reviewed by a jury of professional artists, and will be mounted in the Hilda Woolnough Gallery @ The Guild, with the duration and structure of the shows being determined in part by the volume of submissions. Exhibitions will run from July 2022 to January 2023 with the dates subject to change.
We encourage those including, but not limited to those who identify as women, indigenous, POC, members of visible minorities, LGBTQ2SIA+ and persons with disabilities to apply.
Please note, this call is open to all professional artists who are residents of PEI.
Submissions Deadline is April 30th, 2022 at 5pm.
Artist fees that follow CARFAC standard guidelines will be paid for these exhibitions.
Submissions must be sent via email to firstname.lastname@example.org with The Guild Submission in the subject line.
