Call for Submissions

Professional Gallery Call Deadline

 

 

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
Gallery @ The Guild, with the duration and structure of the shows being determined in
part by the volume of submissions. Exhibitions will run from August 2021 to January
2022 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 May 31, 2021 at 5pm.

Artist fees that follow CARFAC standard guidelines will be paid for these exhibitions.
