There is a fresh opportunity for young artists to exhibit in Abbotsford. While we usually give a glimpse of an emerging artist or two, a curator, or an exhibit from the Emerge at the Reach program, this month we’d like to highlight a call for submissions that was released this week for the upcoming seasons of Art on Demand, a regular series featuring emerging artists.
Fraser Valley artists aged 18 to 35 have until November 25 to submit an application and a selection of photos of their 2D or wall-mounted 3D work for consideration. A full list of submission documents and requirements is available on the Reach website. The gallery space reserved for Art on Demand in the Reach is small but pleasant, and has high visibility from the main lobby of the building. Ample space and light allow for peaceful and uncluttered enjoyment of art displayed there, and emerging artists show their work in the same building as more established professionals, a unique opportunity for local artists with little experience.
As the Art on Demand program features artists from the Emerge program, it is necessary to become a member of Emerge before applying, which costs $25 per person annually.
