Correction on submission and opening dates for this call for entry:
Call for submission to:
"Stark: Seeing the Body"
-The exhibition is open to anyone and everyone who would like to
submit a figurative image that is a view of the body. The bulk of
submissions would presumably be artists involved with the regular
practice of drawing, painting or sculpting from life.
-The show will run from February 28th to March 24th, 2012 at the McMillan
Arts Centre in Parksville.
-The show will be semi-informal in the sense that not all
two-dimensional works (drawings, paintings, and collages) have to be
framed. But all (including sculptures and mixed media) should be ready
for presentation. Unframed works on paper can be tacked or clipped and
tacked to the wall. If you don't want the drawing perforated by a pin
or finishing nail, provide small bulldog clips, for example, which
will be attached to the drawing and these will be attached to the
wall. Every effort will be made by the gallery to not damage work,
however, if you consider an image, on paper for example, to be
exceptionally valuable then you should perhaps put it behind glass.
-Depending on the number of submissions a limit may have to be placed
on works hung. Multiple submissions by one artist might have to be
reduced at the time of hanging. Every effort will be made to hang all
-Works can be for sale. The gallery takes a commission of 30%.
-The works need to be delivered to the McMillan Arts Centre at 133
McMillan Street, Parksville, at the latest by Monday February 27,
12:00 PM. The reception will be held on March 2nd at 7:00 PM. The
show will be taken down on Monday, Mar 26th, at 10:00 AM.
-Usually the artists contribute refreshments for the reception. The
gallery provides tea and coffee.
