Specifics for this call:
Please ensure your work follows the LAC’s definition of an ‘Original Artwork’
Original artwork is created at the hand of the artist who is submitting the work. The creation process must be the effort of a single individual to convey their own personal interpretation of an image or multiple images. Submitting artists are allowed to use reference photos to inspire their work, but artists must use their own design and composition for the final artwork to be considered an original.
If you are submitting a photo medium please ensure the main focal point of the image was taken by the artist and is not a stock image. We do allow stock images to be used in submitted artworks however it must not make up more than 30% of the entire finished artwork.
Please submit artwork that has not been shown in any of the LAC’s previous exhibitions.
Artists are welcome to submit 3 artworks for consideration and will receive a notice via email about the status of their submission after the show’s submission deadline.
All artworks must be for sale, and any sales that take place during the duration of the exhibition must be facilitated through the LAC.
This call can only accommodate artwork that can be hung on a wall and all artworks must remain hung for the duration of the exhibition.
All artwork must be suitably prepared for display. Artworks must be appropriately framed or stretched with finished sides and properly wired for hanging, using d-hooks and wire. The D hooks should be 4” from the top of the frame or 1/3 of the height of the frame. The stretched wire should be 2” below the top of the frame. The Langley Arts Council reserves the right to refuse any piece. Work not properly prepared may not be exhibited (consult with Gallery Director regarding any questions or special considerations before exhibition).
The Langley Arts Council takes a 30% commission on all artwork sales in our brick-and-mortar galleries. Since this exhibition will be online as well as in one of the AIFS Brick-and-Mortar galleries there will be a 30% commission taken on sales.
