Museum issues call for Foyer Art

Deadline for artists' submissions is Oct. 21

The Langley Centennial Museum is once again offering its Foyer Art Program, and is inviting artists to submit photographs of recent artwork, in any medium, for consideration in the Foyer Art 2013/2014 program.

The program intends to provide artists with the opportunity to exhibit their artwork.  Although preference will be given to local people, the program is open to artists from across the Lower Mainland and Fraser Valley.

Exhibition space is available in the Langley Centennial Museum, and the small space available can accommodate between three and 10 pieces of artwork, depending on the size of the pieces.  The site is best suited to exhibit two-dimensional artwork, although three-dimensional work may be considered.

“It’s a great opportunity for artists, particularly new artists, to get some exposure in the community, but to also get some insight into the exhibiting process,” says the museum’s curator, Kobi Christian.

The museum plans to display the artists’ works in two-month time slots.  Christian encourages them to come by the museum to pick up an entry form, or to download one from the museum’s website at langleymuseum.org, by following the heading “Exhibit” to “Foyer Art.”

The submission deadline for applications is Oct. 21.

For more information, please contact Christian at 604-532-3536 or kchristian@tol.ca.
