Gallery hosts juried and invitational print exhibit
The Lake Country Art Gallery is calling for Okanagan-based print artists to submit to an upcoming exhibition called Paper Exchanges.
“This is a show about printmaking; about how works on paper, such as prints, are so economical to send and exhibit around the world, thus facilitating an even greater exchange of ideas and artistic practices over even greater distances,” said gallery curator Katie Brennan.
Artists can submit up to three images of their own printed works along with images from up to three international artists (arranged in order of priority) whose work they would like to see in real life.
A three-person jury will adjudicate the submissions and select participants for this exhibition. The jurors for the exhibition will be Brennan, Briar Craig, associate professor at UBCO, and Mary Smith McCullouch, professor emeritus at UBCO.
“Selections will be based on the quality of the work submitted as well as the quality of the works made by the artist(s) you would like to invite to participate,” said Brennan.
Once selections have been made, the Lake Country Art Gallery will contact the international artists and invite them to submit works for this exhibition.
