Deadline extended for Ensemble show

Maple Ridge gallery still looking for submissions

The Maple Ridge Art Gallery invites artists and artisans from throughout the Lower Mainland and Fraser Valley to contribute work to Ensemble, its annual Christmas exhibition and sale.

The intent of this juried show is to enable artists to exhibit a small group or series of works that are enhanced by being displayed together.

Accepted works must be of the same medium and (approximate) dimensions, and share a common theme or style. Presentation must be consistent for each group of works.

The presentation of each artist’s or artisan’s work is also intended to allow for a coherent statement from each artist, rather than a collection of miscellaneous works with no visible connection to one another.  This can be a useful exercise for emerging artists or artisans who are hoping to one day assemble sufficient work for a solo or duo show.  It is also hoped that the requirements above will generate a body of work for the gallery that lends strong visual impact, variety and overall coherence to the exhibition.

General requirements:

Mediums: Works are accepted in all mediums other than electronic.

Number of works:  Minimum   required is three. Maximum is 7.

Size: 2D work – no longer than 14” on the longest side or plane (unframed).  3D work – no longer than 12” on the longest plane. The deadline for submissions has been extended to Sunday, Oct. 30.

Application packages are available at The ACT and the Maple Ridge Art Gallery or online www.theactmapleridge.org/Ensemble-2011.
