Emerge at The Reach is currently accepting submissions for Art on
Demand, Fall/Winter Edition. This opportunity is ideal for young and emerging artists
looking for exhibition experience.

Art on Demand is a series of exhibitions in a flexible space that features the work

gallery” allowing its members the opportunity to gain practical experience and
exposure to the arts and culture sector. This initiative gives members of Emerge the

artists and art professionals in the Fraser Valley between the ages of 18 and 35.
