The juried Group Exhibition is one of the long-standing highlights of the festival and is held in an outdoor tent along the West Vancouver waterfront. Placed near the busy corridor of Argyle Avenue, the exhibition is a wonderful opportunity for artists to connect their work to a large, art-loving audience.

Artists can submit up to three pieces for display and sale in the exhibition.

The Group Exhibition application deadline is Friday, June 3, 2022. A jury of local artists and art professionals will review submissions. Notifications will be sent via email by June 30 to all applicants.

MORE INFORMATION

Vancouver Civic Theatres (VCT) invites local visual artists to apply for our gallery program offering group exhibition opportunities in 2023. The program provides artists with the opportunity to display work throughout the Queen Elizabeth Theatre Lobbies.

Exhibitions take place in the QET’s very lively lobby spaces, and will be available for viewing during show times for ticket holders, which can exceed over 20,000 patrons in any given week. There will also be opportunities for community engagement activities such as open houses or artist talks, pending venue availability.

For 2023, VCT will select up to eight artists or four collectives to display work on a seasonal basis starting in January 2023. Available exhibition slots include January-March, April-June, July-September, and October-December.

Emerging, mid-career, and established Vancouver-based visual artists are welcomed to apply. Preference will be given to artists who have not shown work at a VCT venue in the past three years. Artists and collectives may submit only one application per year.

Applicants are welcome to attend our upcoming Visual Arts Open House at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre on Monday, May 16th at 6:00pm for more information and to view the exhibition space.

Deadline: June 29, 2022 at 5:00pm
