Calling all artists: Are you inspired by the Fraser River?
The Arts Council of New Westminster, in partnership with the Fraser River Discovery Centre, is inviting visual artists to submit applications for a group exhibition during the opening night of RiverFest 2019. The exhibition will take place Sept. 18 and 19 in the lobby and rotunda of the Discovery Centre.
The theme of the exhibition is the working river and its natural environment.
The call is open to both established and emerging artists, and the arts council also notes that it’s hoping to highlight how diverse the community is. In order to create a platform for marginalized voices, they’re encouraging applications from artists on the LGBTQ spectrum, non-binary artists, artists of colour, Indigenous artists and artists with disabilities.
Submissions will be accepted up until 4 p.m. on Friday, June 28.
