Call for Visual Artists: PATHWAYS Exhibit for Alberta Culture Days

Keyano Theatre & Arts Centre and Arts Council Wood Buffalo is seeking applications from local artists to display their work during Alberta Culture Days in a unique audio/visual exhibit titled PATHWAYS.

Five visual artists will be selected to have their original 2D or 3D artworks exhibited in the Keyano Art Gallery. An honorarium will be paid to the successful applicants.

Each piece of art displayed will have a link to an audio recording of the artist describing the work that visitors can listen to on their personal device. Photographs of the pieces, artist biographies, and the audio link will also be posted on the Keyano Theatre and ACWB websites during Alberta Culture Days in September.

Tours in the gallery will run from September 16 to October 16, 2020, with additional artistic activities at Keyano College taking place on September 24-27. The exhibit will be installed on September 14.

Artists should submit in one email the following information:

  • High-resolution digital images of a maximum of four pieces of art (files should be labeled ‘Last Name_First Name_Title of Artwork_1’; ‘Last Name_First Name_Title of Artwork_2; etc.)
  • An artist biography of no more than 250 words
  • A written statement of your path to becoming an artist and what makes art so meaningful to you (up to 500 words)

Artwork will be chosen based on connection to the exhibit theme PATHWAYS as demonstrated in the submitted statement, artistic merit, and artist’s availability to deliver the artwork and recorded statement about each piece selected for display by the deadline of September 14. Selection by the adjudication committee is final.

Deadline to submit is September 8 at 11:00 p.m. The selected artists will be notified by the end of day on September 10.

If you are selected, please be prepared to supply an artist bio and an MP3 recorded audio description of each selection (suggested time is one minute each) by September 14. Keyano Theatre would be happy to assist as needed.
