INTERESTED IN BEING FEATURED

IN THE ART HOUSE GALLERY

Art House accepts new art for its Main Gallery on an ongoing basis, taking into consideration the space available, accordance with other pieces, and content, colours or themes, when applicable. Artwork on display gets replaced as it sells and the Gallery Team reviews submissions as space becomes available.

HOW TO SUBMIT

To be featured in our Main Gallery, photos of all available artwork or links to portfolio or social media pages can be sent to submissions@thearthousecafe.ca at any time.

Artists will be contacted regarding the availability of pieces of interest when opportunities to be featured arise.

See Guidelines below for Special Exhibition submissions.

Main Gallery Submission Guidelines

We are interested in any medium, style, and size of artwork! The Gallery Team reviews submissions for on a periodic basis and may select works based on composition and content, space available, accordance with other pieces, or themes, such as the seasons. Artists and Vendors may also submit prints and items for our Gift Shop.

We recommend sending in as many works through images or links as are available as it's much easier to include an Artist when there are many works to choose from. There is no limit to the number of submissions one Artist can make over time but we ask that all submissions be contained in one email per instance and request image files to be under 2 MB each. Only accepted pieces can be dropped off at Art House; artwork cannot be dropped off for consideration without consent.

Special Exhibition Submission Guidelines

Individuals or groups may rent the walls of our Drawing Room for a month at a time, to curate and present a body of their works.

Guidelines for Special Exhibition submissions will become available when Special Exhibitions are running again. Sign up for our newsletter to stay up-to-date on all things Art House, or email submissions@thearthousecafe.ca with your name and subject line 'Special Exhibition Waiting List' to receive details when Special Exhibition programming is ready to resume. Artists which had pre-existing bookings will be contacted first.
