Artists have until Sept. 7 to express their interest in participating in the show.

The selection team will preview artist websites and social media channels for examples of their work (artists don’t need to submit the final work or photos of their work). Once artists have been accepted, they can submit one to three works of art, which must all measure 12 by 12 inches. Subject matter is artists’ choice. All work must be ready to hang and signed only on the back.

Each piece of anonymous art will be priced at $150, with $100 going to the artist when sold. The rest of the money goes to cover costs and to the Arts Council of New Westminster.

Artists will need to drop off their work between Sept. 19 and 21 for jurying, and artists will be informed of the selection committee’s final decision by Sept. 27.

The selection jurors are Susan L. Greig, owner of 100 Braid Street Studios; Michael King, president of Plein Air B.C.; Stephen O’Shea, executive director of the Arts Council of New Westminster; and Trudy Van Dop, owner of Van Dop Gallery.

The show itself runs Oct. 26 and 27 at 100 Braid Street Studios and Gallery. For all the details and full, official submission guidelines, see
