The Maple Ridge Art Gallery is seeking submissions for its annual Ensemble exhibition, the deadline for which has been extended to Monday, Nov. 5.

The submission process is open to everyone, and forms along with further information are available at the Maple Ridge Art Gallery website. Hard copies are available from the gallery or the ACT.

Artists are asked to submit work that suggests an ensemble.

“This could be a shared theme, medium, or any series of works that suggests unity in its display,” explains curator Barbara Duncan.

“The fact that the show includes all mediums tends to encourage a lot of variety and some unexpected and unusual items. The Ensemble display format works well in the capacious Maple Ridge gallery, where smaller works can be sometimes be overwhelmed by the large volume of space.”

The show also represents a great opportunity to find a totally unique gift, and the relatively reasonable price point of many of these artworks offers visitors an affordable entry point to buying original work.

Ensemble 2012 will be on display at the gallery from Nov. 24 until Dec. 20. An opening reception takes place Nov. 24.
