Nextfest 2018: Call for Visual Art Gallery Exhibitions

Uncategorized   /  

Nextfest is now accepting Visual Art submissions for the 2018 Festival. The festival runs May 31 – June 10 in Edmonton, Alberta. Nextfest is an opportunity for emerging visual artists to show and create new work. For the purpose of this festival, “emerging” refers to artists in the first 10 years of their career who are not professionally represented.

Nextfest is also an opportunity to collaborate. If you are interested in working with another artist on a new work, let us know!

Deadline: March 10

The Nextfest Galleries host visual art work that is on display for the duration of the festival. All of the galleries are located near Edmonton’s Whyte Avenue.

Feel free to dream big with proposals for these spaces. The curator would like to see images of either a finished body of work or a coherent proposal for new work. Contact the curator for more information on the gallery venues. All gallery artists will be paid an artist exhibition fee.

Submission guidelines (please include all):

  • 5-10 JPG images of work with image list: title, dimensions, and medium
  • Artist statement
  • Short bio and/or CV
  • E-mail submissions or questions to Steven Teeuwsen/ Nextfest Visual Arts Curator: steven.teeuwsen@gmail.com

PSST! This year there are five opportunities related to visual Art. Please read through all of them. Applicants are welcome to answer more than one call. Three of the calls are offered through the Serving Communities Internship Program (SCiP) and are exclusive to currently enrolled or recently graduated post-secondary students registered in Alberta.
