Artist Call – Art 4 Life


We have been planning a special multimedia exhibition at the Arts Centre called Art 4 Life. Attached you can find the call for submissions and included some information below.

Please feel free to share this with any artists you think would be interested.

The exhibition will also include artist talks, tours, demos and participatory features.

Again, it is titled Art 4 Life, and is an exhibition of artwork for children created by adults. The deadline is August 29th, 2014 by 5 pm.

The Port Moody Arts Centre invites artists in all media to explore themes in their work that would appeal to children.

The call is for a multi-artist exhibition of 2D and 3D artwork, and participatory features that are geared to a young audience (under 9 years). The purpose of the exhibition and the related events is to inspire and engage children and encourage art appreciation and participation, so that art becomes a lifelong journey.

The exhibition is scheduled for October 16 – November 13, 2014 and will coincide with Joyelle Brandt’s exhibition and book release of The Monster in Me – Princess Monsters From A-Z, in the Suncor Gallery.
