Call for Visual Arts Submissions: The Quenten Doolittle Memorial Gallery - EYE ON SOCIETY

The Pumphouse Theatre is a vibrant facility with historical significance. It supports and presents all art forms and creates opportunities for engagement, enrichment, cultural experience, learning and inspiration while serving all Calgarians. To enable this, the Quenten Doolittle Memorial Gallery provides accessible wall display space for Mohkinstsis (Calgary) and Alberta visual artists to display and sell their work, free from commission.

For this exhibit, we are looking for work that speaks to a social issue – from poverty to racism to gender inequality and beyond. Submissions of any style, from realistic to abstract, and in any visual art medium will be considered, provided it meets all gallery requirements below.

Submissions must meet the following requirements:

  • Artist must reside in Calgary and must be available for installation dates provided.
  • Artwork must be delivered ready to hang (wall-space only) 

Submission Deadline: August 20th, 2021, 4pm

Accessibility

The Pumphouse Theatre supports an inclusive and diverse community. We encourage any submissions of eligible visual artists from all communities including but not limited to the LGBTQ2+, BIPOC, and those with disabilities. 

Any artists who need assistance with their application, or have inquires and questions, are welcome to contact the Pumphouse Theatre, at any point.
