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

 

The display will continue to rotate twice a year in January & July. The deadline for both July 2016 and January 2017 exhibits is March 1st 2016.

 

All media is acceptable but must be able to be displayed in a hanging mode either on a wall or in front of a window. A limited number of freestanding pieces will also be considered. 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. Larger is better.

 

“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.
