Calling all local artists.

The Fort Gallery has extended the entry deadline for their 2018 juried exhibition — Losing Home, Finding Hope — to April 25.

The exhibit will contemplate loss of home. From the forced migration of political refugees, to wildlife habitat degradation, the gallery is looking for submissions that evoke themes of loss of home, and creating a sense of hope. Contemporary modes of artistic expression are encouraged.

The show will run May 30 to June 24 (formerly scheduled for March 7 to April 1) at the gallery, 9048 Glover Rd. in Fort Langley. Both 2D and 3D artists are encouraged to enter. Artists may submit a maximum of three artworks electronically.

HOW TO APPLY

1. Complete an online artist submission form at fortgallery.ca and pay the jury fee of $30 ($20 for Fort Gallery Society members).

2. Send a separate email to fortgallery@hotmail.com with digital (jpeg, jpg) images of up to three pieces of original 2D or 3D artwork.
