Artist Call Out: Animal Farm


The North Vancouver Community Arts Council is seeking artists for a themed exhibition called “Animal Farm,” for CityScape Community Art Space.

In Animal Farm, George Orwell identified personalities in each farm animal, from the squealer pig to the good-hearted female cart-horse, each animal on the farm has a unique manner and behaviour.

We are seeking artists who convey the character, temperament, nature and relationship of farm animals in their artwork. In celebration of over 80 local farms in the Lower Mainland, this exhibition will highlight the heart and life of farm animals. This exhibit is all about the animals running the farms.

The exhibition will be held at CityScape Community Art Space July 10 – September 5, 2015.
