Special Exhibitions

Are you looking to show your work, or that of a group, in a gallery? We now accept bookings for private, two week special exhibitions in our Drawing Room, with the Vernissage taking place on the first Friday of the exhibition. For more information or to reserve your own exhibition, contact events@thearthousecafe.ca.

NEW EXHIBITION STRUCTURE

As of February 1st, 2018, we are changing the structure of our exhibitions! We are continuing to host large, submission-based group exhibitions. Forms, available on this web page, can be filled out and sent with accompanying photos to submissions@thearthousecafe.ca at any time starting February 1st 2018, with the submission period remaining open and forms accepted and considered on an ongoing basis. Artwork on display gets replaced as it sells with new pieces pulled from the pool of submissions. Artists will be contacted regarding the availability of pieces of interest at the time that space frees up. We're open to all styles, mediums, sizes, and content, and there won't be any specific overarching themes.

Submission Guidelines

Artists are asked to fill out the Submission Form, available for download on this page, and send with accompanying photographs to submissions@thearthousecafe.ca. Submission Forms MUST be signed (digitally or manually). The Forms can be scanned, or sent as photographs (from one's phone, for example), or dropped off in person at the Art House Café. Guidelines for submission and delivery of artwork are as follows:

Any piece or item intended for display on a wall MUST be dropped off at the Art House Café in a ready-to-hang state (proper attachments or mounting at the back such as eyelets and wire must be included). Failure to to bring the piece in a ready-to-hang state may result in the dismissal of the accepted piece, or the artist may have the option to pay a hanging fee ($5 per piece).

The Art House Café has the right to refuse any accepted piece(s) or item(s) upon delivery for reasons including, but not limited to, damage suffered by the item.

Applicants whose submissions have been selected to feature in an Exhibition will be contacted at least 5 days prior to the Exhibition. Due to the high number of submissions and sale dependant runovers, we unfortunately can only contact applicants whose submissions have been accepted at the time space becomes available. Submissions can also be considered and accepted for sale in the Gift Shop at any time.

Pieces and items are to be dropped off at The Art House Café anytime during regular business hours.

Accepted pieces and items will remain at The Art House Café until a sale occurs, the owner requests a return at least 48 hours in advance in writing, or the Art House Café choses to make a change to the artwork on display, excepting in the case of extenuating circumstances.

Pieces and items requiring pickup must be picked up from The Art House Café by the artist or their established representatives up to 14 days after being contacted by The Art House Café. The Art House Café reserves the right to auction any piece that was not picked up in this timeframe and will give the artist 50% of the proceeds received. Exceptions must be established in writing in advance.

We are now taking submissions on an ongoing basis!

We're open to all styles, mediums, sizes, and content. No specific theme applies to submissions moving forward. We strongly encourage the submission of all possible works and/or links to portfolios and profile pages,

Please send the completed Submission Form with associated picture attachments to submissions@thearthousecafe.ca
