Open Call for Submissions from Clay, Glass and Copper Enamel Artists
We are pleased to announce a national open call for submissions from Canadian clay, glass and copper enamel artists for Confined, a national group exhibition.

In March 2020, Covid-19 brought all of us to a standstill. Many artists didn’t even have access to their studios. As Covid-19 continues to affect us all in our daily life, we invite clay, glass, and copper enamel artists to express in their art what the imposed confinement meant for them.

Mental health issues, anxiety, financial burden for some, but also time to reflect, conceptualise, create for others, the conflict and diversification of personal and professional life are possible themes…and more.

Multi-media works and those that incorporate new media within the use of clay, glass, and copper enamelling will be considered.

The selected works will be presented in the exhibition starting in January 2022. A publication will also be produced. The Gallery will provide an artist fee (as set out by CARFAC) to the selected artists and cover the costs of shipping and insurance for the duration of the exhibition.

We welcome submissions from all qualified applicants and encourage submissions from groups that are typically underrepresented in institutional spaces, including racialized and Indigenous individuals, LGBTQ2S+ identifying individuals, francophone individuals, Deaf persons, and persons with disabilities. If you require any accommodations during the submissions process, please contact or 519-746-1882 ext: 235.
