Call to Artists

Call to Artists

The Fernwood Community Association’s Little Fernwood Gallery Committee seeks proposals for month-long exhibitions to be held at 1923 Fernwood Road from January to December 2023.

Little Fernwood Gallery is a not-for-profit neighbourhood exhibition space dedicated to emerging, local, and diverse visual artists.

This Call is open to all local artists/groups/collectives with the selection process prioritizing artists who live and/or work in Fernwood, who experience systemic barriers to inclusion in the visual arts, who employ diverse approaches to their art. We are seeking a wide range of art-making, and an array of material explorations that reflect our unique community. Emerging artists are encouraged to apply.

The Little Fernwood Gallery follows accepted protocols on copyright infringement and non-appropriation of Indigenous cultures — work that infringes on these guidelines will not be accepted. The Little Fernwood Gallery is a publicly supported gallery and we reserve the right to show work suitable to our neighbourhood.

Please send a single PDF, including embedded images, with the following information:
- Name
- Contact [email, phone, address]
- Artist statement [no longer than 500 words]
- Description of proposed exhibition [no longer than 500 words]
- 5-10 images of proposed work or recent work / exhibitions
- List of Images that includes Title, Medium, Date, and Dimensions
- Please indicate month(s) of the year you would prefer for your exhibit, if applicable

Email application to: [email protected] Deadline: 30 August 2022

Floorplan is available here: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1Y7HhRrHtcDa8OHuIpMKAZeDrsMt7ero0/view?usp=sharing

Additional information can be found online: thefca.ca


Please note:

All artists selected to show must agree to gallery-sit Saturday and/or Sunday afternoons during the presentation of their exhibit.

As this is a community space, we kindly ask that you wait two years before applying if you have exhibited with the Little Fernwood Gallery recently.
