2017 Art Sale - Call for Submissions

Thursday, April 27 to Sunday, April 30, 2017
Joey and Toby Tanenbaum Pavilion, Art Gallery of Hamilton

Please read the following carefully to ensure that your application portfolio is complete.
Application Deadline: February 10th, 2017


In April 2017, the Art Gallery of Hamilton is proud to be celebrating its 10-year anniversary of our annual Art Sale. With an ever-growing community of art collectors and art lovers in Hamilton and beyond, the Art Sale is a program of AGH Art Rental + Sales, a revenue generating department that supports the AGH’s programming. Previous Art Sales have successfully helped to raise the profile of AGH Art Rental + Sales and participating artists alike, featuring a wide selection of local and regional artists in many styles, mediums and price points.

We are seeking submissions from emerging and established Canadian artists for the upcoming Art Sale. Submissions will be reviewed by a panel of arts professionals in order to select approximately 70 artists for the event.

Participation details: Selected artists are welcome but not required to attend the event, as all transactions are managed by a team of professional sales staff. Sales are handled on a consignment basis, with artists receiving 50% of the retail price of artwork sold through the event. Artists are responsible for delivery and pick up of artwork on prescribed dates. There are no additional administrative fees to be incurred by participating artists. Selected artists are encouraged to attend the opening event on Thursday, April 27, at 6 pm.

How to apply: Please submit the following materials by Friday, February 10th, by 5 pm. Submissions will be accepted by mail or email. Late submissions will not be considered.
