OPEN Call for Submissions
Canadian artists are asked to submit collage and assemblage works that use or employ food imagery, packaging, preparation utensils or similar for an upcoming show to coincide with the annual Nocturne - Art at Night event in Halifax, NS. The exhibition will be hung in the gallery to be viewed alongside the interactive 'food truck inspired' outdoor installation proposed for this years Nocturne event, October 14, 2023.
Let your imagination run wild and draw inspiration from anything food related. Recipes, menus, take out bags, forks, ketchup bottles, advertisements, frying pans, wine corks, grocery receipts, pasta art, food labels, box board...
If food packaging or utensils are to be used, please ensure they are clean and free of oils and/or other remnants of food. Pieces can be prepared in any way the artist sees fit, but should be suitably prepared for hanging on the wall or within a plastic sleeve for protection if work is unframed on paper. The gallery has limited space for sculptural works, but it is encouraged if you work in this way to submit.
Include with all submissions the title of the piece, dimensions, materials, price if available for sale and artist name, pronouns, mailing address and any social media links. If chosen for the show, a separate email with instructions will be provided. Shipping to the gallery will be the artists responsibility, and the gallery will be responsible for returning the artworks after the showing.
Please send .jpg submissions or questions to firstname.lastname@example.org and further instructions will be given.
Submissions will be accepted no later than August 1, midnight.
Invited artists will be notified by email no later than August 8th.
