Two Call For Submissions! Art Gallery of Mississauga

What is Mississauga?

The Challenge…to create an artwork that defines Mississauga. The artwork can be in any media. The only restriction is the size. The artwork must be 12 inches by 12 inches (overall size) for two dimensional works and for three dimensional works must be able to fit into a 12 inch cube.
What is the true nature of Mississauga? What is Mississauga to you as long time resident or as a newcomer? What is Mississauga to you as a young person or as a senior citizen… as a Christian, a Muslim, a Buddhist, a Hindu, a Jew or a Sikh (no matter what your religion)?
The artwork does not have to be representational and in fact we discourage pictures, or photographs of the Civic Centre (or the Mayor). What we want are thoughtful and perceptive works that define the City as it is to you. They can be conceptual, abstract or illustrative. They can be new media works or traditional paintings. They can be critical or positive, introspective or universal. They should reflect your artistic style and/or even you cultural background. What we are after is a variety of works from a cross section of the Mississauga Community.
Entry Fee: $15 per work (a two work maximum)
Selection of Works: The entries will be juried. The selected works will be shown at the Art Gallery of Mississauga from March 29, 2007 to May 3, 2007. Artist fees will be paid to all of the artists whose work is selected.
Eligibility:Artists must live in Mississauga or have a significant connection to the City.
Entry Forms: will be available by February 1, 2007 at the Gallery and from our website. Forms and entry fees must be received by Friday, March 9, 2007.
Delivery of Submissions: Artworks are to be brought to the Gallery on Wednesday, March 21, 2007 between 3pm and 7pm.
Submission Format:
  • The artwork must be ready to hang.
  • Framed if it is a work on paper.
  • An artwork may not need a frame but it must have hanging hardware on the back.
  • If special installation instructions are necessary they must be provided on submission.
  • All of the information pertaining to the artwork must be provided on submission… artist's name, title of the artwork, date completed (it should have just been created 2006 or 2007), media, size (it should be 12" x 12" in most cases), value of the work and whether it is for sale
  • If there is an explanation/statement of the artwork required this must also be supplied on submission
  • All works will be for sale unless noted as not for sale (NFS) and the Art Gallery of Mississauga will retain 20% of the sale of the artwork.
  • Any electronic or new media works must be entered with the necessary equipment to be viewed (format must be consistent with other media formats 12" x 12")

Hey there! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this
website? I'm getting sick and tired of Wordpress because I've had issues with hackers and I'm looking at alternatives for another platform. I would be awesome if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

Have you ever considered about adding a little bit more than just your articles?
I mean, what you say is fundamental and all. But think about if you added some
great pictures or videos to give your posts more, "pop"! Your content is excellent but with pics
and videos, this website could definitely be one of the very best in
its field. Great blog!

Hello administrator, I just wanted to give you a quick heads up
that your Website url: http://www.blogger.
com/comment.g?blogID=34028656&postID=116187104046316429
is being flagged as a potentially harmful internet site in my web browser ie.
I'd highly suggest having somebody look into it. You could possibly lose a lot of guests due to this issue. Very best of Luck.
