Call to artists for 2019 Exhibition Calendar

Deadline: November 30, 2018

The Gallery Committee at La Fab is soliciting submissions for their 2019 Exhibition Calendar. Submissions must be received by November 30, 2018.

La Fab, an artist run co-op, is located in Chelsea, Québec, and operates thanks to the work of dedicated volunteers. Every year we offer 6 to 8 exhibition slots (usually 24 days in length) to artists working in all media. We are looking for a wide variety of voices and forms of expression. Solo, duo or group shows are all welcome. The committee looks forward to seeing your proposal.

Submission Requirements

If his/her exhibition proposal is selected, the artist must be or become a member of La Fab ($30 in shares for new members plus $50 for annual fee for all). The artist also accepts to give 25% commission on all sales that will occur at La Fab during the time of the show. Exhibiting artists are encouraged to be present in the gallery during their show as much as possible to answer questions and connect with the public. 
Also, if selected, the artist must provide a French version of the written documents in order to maintain La Fab's bilingual policy. 

 A complete submission package must include the following: 

In paper format:

  • Application Form
  • Exhibition Proposal (maximum of one page describing the exhibition)
  • Biography and Artist Statement* (total maximum of one page)
