Black Water Art is a metaphor for the conceptual transition from one space to another. This event transforms the White Water Gallery Artist-Run Centre into a commercial venue for a period of two weeks each January. During this time artwork will be installed in a salon style exhibition and sold on site. 100% of each sale goes directly to the artist making this a unique commercial opportunity for participants.
One piece per artist will be accepted in any medium (spatial and technical restrictions may apply). Works are restricted to a maximum of 24 x 24 inches (or 24 x 24 x 24 inches for 3-dimensional pieces). Shipping costs are the responsibility of the artist and all works must be submitted ready to install along with the completed submission form and any applicable fees. Sales will be facilitated by the White Water Gallery based upon the prices set by the artists themselves. Monies received by the Gallery from the sale of artwork will be sent to the artist by cheque (please specify payee if different from the name on the submission form).
Members of the White Water Gallery submit their piece for FREE. Non-members must pay a $30 submission fee. NOTE: A membership to the White Water Gallery costs $25 yearly. Anyone can join, and there are additional benefits and opportunities available for members.
All works submitted to the show will be featured on the Gallery's website. Artists are required to submit a brief artist statement (250 words max.) to accompany their work online. This artist statement must be submitted via email to firstname.lastname@example.org and must include the artist's name for reference.
