The City of Pitt Meadows has a call out for artist for a pop-up gallery.
While the city’s art gallery is relocated – from the corner of Harris Road and McMyn Road – to the Civic Centre, a move that is expected to take until mid-2023, a pop-up space is being opened up to feature a local artist each month.
A display case located in the City Hall lobby will feature the art, both three dimensional and two dimensional, for four weeks at a time. During this time the artwork will be showcased and available for sale, facilitated by the Pitt Meadows Art Gallery.
Chosen artists will be responsible to determine what pieces of their work can fit into the space and provide display stands, if needed. They will also be responsible for the set-up and take-down of their artwork on the specified dates that are on the city website.
The display case has three shelves and will be locked at all times during the exhibition.
Staff will provide labels for the artwork, and an artist biography, located inside the display, and marketing for the exhibition.
A virtual gallery will be on display on the website.
The current gallery site will remain open until Sunday, Jan. 8, and everything will be 10 per cent off.
Artists can find applications on the city’s website at: pittmeadows.ca/arts-culture-heritage/pitt-meadows-art-gallery/call-artists-submissions and the completed forms with supporting documents can be emailed to the city at email@example.com or dropped off at the Pitt Meadows Family Recreation Centre, 12027 Harris Road, Attn: PMAG.
