Call For Artists: Animal Antics

September 28, 2023 - October 24, 2023


The Penticton & District Community Arts Council wants to spend the holiday season with all of the four legged beasties, critters, vermin, varmints, mammals and animals you can think of! If they fly or swim, all the better. One of our final exhibitions for 2023 is Animal Antics—a bright and cheerful culmination of the year. Open to artists working in all mediums to apply and submit their work. This exhibition will be on display in PDCAC Gallery I at the Leir House and will be one of the destinations for the upcoming Fall Art Walk.

Theme: Animals, colourful, and fun.


How to Apply:

Please send a clear image of the artwork that you will be submitting, or another image that would be representative of it (a sketch or other similar work), to with “Animal Antics” in the subject line. Include your full name, title of artwork, medium(s), dimensions (height x width in inches), and price.

Important Information:

o   Paintings are required to be wired on the back to hang with the system at the Leir House (no string or cording on the back as it is not strong enough). This is the responsibility of the artist.

o   The PDCAC retains a 30% commission on all artwork sales. Please make sure to price your artwork with this in mind.

o   Please let us know immediately if your work has unique display requirements before bringing it to the gallery.

The number of artworks each artist can submit will depend on size and medium. For example:

o   A potter may submit several works.

o   A painter may submit one large painting or several smaller paintings.

o   A felter may submit several works.

o   Connect with the PDCAC if you have any questions.

* Artists will be accepted in order until all spaces are filled, so apply as early as possible to secure a spot.
