Call for Artists of all levels to submit works for the upcoming arts exhibit in the JCC Zack Gallery
“Community Longing and Belonging”
January 14-27, 2019
Themed art show: How do we make meaning of the concept of community, the real and the imagined spaces we inhabit? What does community longing look like and what are the possibilities for belonging in an ever changing world.
This is an unjuried call to artists of all levels, mixed ability, perspective, faith and social location to participate in a community art show in celebration of Jewish Disability Awareness and Inclusion Month. Art will be exhibited at the Jewish Community Centre of Greater Vancouver from January 14-27 in the Sidney and Gertrude Zack Gallery.
Each artist will be given a 12×16 panel to explore this social condition. The panels will be available for pick up from October 17 onwards until we have run out. The panels are versatile and can be used with almost any medium: oil, acrylic, watercolour, pastel, encaustic, photography and news media.
Finished panels are to be returned, wired and ready to hang by January 9 at 4:00pm. Artists name and title of work should be included on the back of the panel.
There will be an opening for the exhibition on January 15 from 7:00-9:00pm, and artists will have the pleasure of inviting their friends and family to the event.
On opening night each piece will have a silent auction sheet attached. The bidding will be open for 10 days. Half of proceeds from the sales of the art with go to the artists, the other half to the Gallery and to support Inclusion programming. Artists whose works don’t sell will be asked to
retrieve their pieces after the show.
