The Chilliwack Cultural Centre & Chilliwack Visual Artists Association are collaborating on a project that provides an opportunity for Local Artists who work on a large scale to display their art-work in the lobby of the Chilliwack Cultural Centre.

The call for 2013 entries was very successful and it is intended to continue the initiative.

The display will continue to rotate twice a year in January & July. The deadline for both January & July 2014 exhibits is November 15th 2013.

All media is acceptable but must be able to be displayed in a hanging mode either on a wall, in front of a window or from the ceiling. Freestanding pieces will not be considered at this time. All submissions will be juried and if accepted then the artist will be expected to sign a contract.

The subject can range from local interest to anything related to the Visual or Performing Arts.

There is no limit to the number of pieces submitted provided that each piece is no less than 4ft x 6ft

“Work in progress” will require a detailed description; progress sketches and an idea of the overall size and include the anticipated date for completion. It should be noted that there is no guarantee that a work in progress, even if accepted at the concept stage will be displayed.

To respond to this invitation please complete an Artwork Submission Form (available from this website or can be picked up from the Cultural Centre Box Office on Corbould St.) and mail it along with a CD or good quality photographs of your art-work and, if possible an Artists Statement to:

Lobby Display Project
c/o Michael Cade,
Chilliwack Cultural Centre,
9201 Corbould St.,
Chilliwack, BC. V2P 4A6

Or just drop it off at the Cultural Centre Box Office at the same address. Deadline for receiving submissions is November 15th 2013. If accepted then the Artist will be notified before Dec. 13th. 2013 and will be asked to complete a Contract.
