PLACE DES ARTS EXTENDS DEADLINE FOR ARTIST SUBMISSIONS FOR 2014 EXHIBITION SCHEDULE
Coquitlam, BC, January 8, 2013 . . . Place des Arts has extended the deadline for artists to submit proposals for the centre’s 2014 gallery exhibitions. The extended deadline for submissions is Sunday, March 3, 2013.
Place des Arts offers 3 gallery spaces where local emerging artists and art groups may exhibit and sell their works. Artists living in British Columbia who are not represented by a professional gallery are considered local, emerging artists.
Place des Arts welcomes submissions in 2D and 3D media and techniques including fibre arts, pottery, sculpture, painting, photography, prints and drawings; we are not able to accommodate multimedia work at this time.
Place des Arts’ galleries are open to the public 7 days a week and are a popular destination with local residents and visitors alike. Place des Arts regularly hosts over 60,000 visitors per year. The centre distributes exhibition invitation cards for display at over 20 arts and community centres in the Lower Mainland, and its galleries and gift shop are featured in guides such as Van Dop, Galleries West and Preview. A full promotional campaign is devoted to each exhibition series.
