KUMF Gallery - Call for Submissions

Left: Victor Gontarov’s Heavenly Boat (Небесний човен) 1998. Right: Luboslaw Hutsaliuk’s, Red and Black Landscape (1971).

KUMF Gallery located in Toronto’s west-end is dedicated to the exhibition and promotion Ukrainian-Canadian artists, Ukrainian artists from around the world and Canadian artists of diverse cultural backgrounds. The Gallery maintains a year-round program of solo and group exhibitions by emerging, mid-career and established local, national and international visual artists. For the benefit of current and future generations the Ukrainian Canadian Art Foundation collects, preserves and interprets Ukrainian art works and is the custodian of the Permanent Collection. Selected art from the Permanent Collection of more than 500 fine art works provides a context and forum for dialogue about KUMF Gallery’s exhibitions and contemporary issues. In 1975, The Ukrainian Canadian Art Foundation and KUMF Gallery, Toronto were established as a non-profit organization.

KUMF Gallery is launching and inviting submissions from Canadian artists for the newly created, Expanded Reach Programme entitled, “A Reply to the Permanent Collection” with the début of Myth, Legend and Fairy Tales, December’s fund-raiser, “Exquisite Holiday Treasures” and Imaginative Cityscapes.

December 2018 - Myth, Legend and Fairy Tales

All the magical creatures of myths, legends, and fairy tales come alive at the stroke of midnight in Christmas stories. In Victor Gontarov’s Heavenly Boat (Небесний човен) 1998, the child in a dreamlike state, rocking in his mother's soft embrace, envisions an animated magical universe. The boat personified by the Siren's singing face, the dove a messenger of the Divine, the mills, houses and earthly creatures are left behind as the boat gently rocks and floats into a fairy tale dream world.

KUMF Gallery is calling for submissions in response to Hontarov's Heavenly Boat in all media; creative reflections and interpretations, enchanting images of fairies, and creatures that we all would like so much to encounter at the magical time of Christmas.

May 2019 - Imaginative Cityscape
