Calling all local artists Print

Local artists looking to expose their talent to the general public will have a unique opportunity to do so, thanks to the City of Oshawa.

The city is extending an invitation to local artists and artistic groups to present proposals for temporary exhibitions in one to three locked display cases that are located in the hallway to the Council Chamber. The space is available for a minimum of three months and measures 8’ (height) x 6-8’ (width) x 2’ (depth) (2.4m x 1.8m-2.4m x 55cm) with ceiling hanging devises and the option to have glass shelves.

Proposals will be reviewed by the City of Oshawa’s Art and History Committee, which is comprised of City of Oshawa staff and representatives from the Oshawa Community Museum and The Robert McLaughlin Gallery.

All proposals should be post-marked no later than February 28, 2011 and include a resume, artist statement and up to ten visuals (no original art works; CD ROM preferred). Artists will be notified in March, 2011.

The City of Oshawa, in conjunction with the Oshawa Community Museum and The Robert McLaughlin Gallery, will assist with the installation of the exhibition. The City of Oshawa will not be responsible for insurance coverage of the works of art while they are on display. Artists are asked to ensure that all works are in a condition suitable for display (including matting and framing, if applicable).

Proposals can be sent to:
The Art and History Committee
c/o Service Oshawa
City of Oshawa
50 Centre Street South
Oshawa, ON, L1H 3Z7
