Sarnia, ON – Lambton County artists interested in displaying their work are invited to make their submission to the Judith & Norman Alix Art Gallery (JNAAG) on or before February 18, 2018. The Gallery’s Look & See 2018 Call for Entry is open to all Lambton County artists including those who have never before shown in a formal exhibition. Selected artists will have their work presented in one of two time periods: June 1 – 17, 2018 or July 6 – 15, 2018.

“Look & See is an opportunity for artists living in Lambton County to receive a curatorial studio visit, have their art considered for a ‘Pop Up’ exhibition at the Judith & Norman Alix Art Gallery, and present a public talk and tour about their work,” explains Gallery Curator/Supervisor, Lisa Daniels.

Eligibility
Artists must live in and produce their artistic work in Lambton County. All work must be original. Any media will be considered. Those who have had an exhibition at the JNAAG in the past three years or are scheduled for an exhibition at the gallery within the next three years are ineligible. Some accommodation may be made for works that have been shown elsewhere in Lambton County within the past three years. 

Submissions must include your artist statement, an entry fee of $25.00 (members of the Gallery can submit for free), a USB with JPEG images of up to 12 works or short video of time-based work, and special installation instructions if required. All submissions must be mailed or dropped off at the Gallery. No electronic submissions will be accepted.  For an application form and submission details visit the JNAAG’s website, www.JNAAG.ca.

 The gallery’s curatorial team will review all submissions from which studio visits in March 2018 will be determined.
