Artist Call Out: The Boat Show


The North Vancouver Community Arts Council is seeking artists working in all media whose subject matter is boats.

Being situated on the West Coast of Canada we have a strong relationship with boats; they are an integral part of our transportation network, part of our economy and often part of our recreational habits. Many of us hold a fascination for them and are drawn to them. Boats can evoke strong emotions, from riding the waves at the helm to simply admiring them from ashore.

For this exhibition, we define boats as a vessel for travelling on water – could include, but not limited to: canoe, dinghy, tall ship, cargo ship, yacht, liner, cruiser, ferry, sailboat, dory…

This exhibition will highlight the world of boats and the emotion they evoke in various mediums.

The Boat Show will be held at CityScape Community Art Space, May 22 – July 4, 2015

Please submit 2D, 3D and installation works for a themed exhibition called “THE BOAT SHOW.” Artists are encouraged to submit up to eight works that are available for exhibition.

• Works submitted as digital images in PDF or JPG format on DISK or USB or as printed photographs. All images must be labeled with title, size and medium.
