Chilliwack Cultural Centre invites large-format artists to display work in lobby

Applications for the centre’s lobby display are being accepted until Dec. 2

The Chilliwack Arts and Cultural Centre Society and the Chilliwack Visual Artists Association collaborate on a project that provides the opportunity for local artists who work on a large scale to display their artwork in the lobby of the Chilliwack Cultural Centre.

The deadline to apply is Monday, Dec. 2.

The display will continue to rotate twice a year in January and August. Ongoing submissions are accepted. Adjudication will take place in December, and the show will be hung in January 2020.

All mediums are acceptable but must be able to be displayed in a hanging mode suitable for the Cultural Centre staff to install. A limited number of freestanding pieces will also be considered. All submissions will be juried, and if accepted, the artist will be expected to sign a contract.

The subject can range from local interest to anything related to the visual or performing arts. Local artists may submit artwork of any subject or theme

There is no limit to the number of pieces submitted provided that each piece is no less than four feet by six feet. Larger is better. (A composite of two related pieces equivalent to 4’x 6’ or larger could be accepted)

“Work in progress” will require a detailed description; progress sketches and an idea of the overall size and include the anticipated date of completion. It should be noted that there is no guarantee that a work in progress, even if accepted at the concept stage will be displayed.
