Monday 11th May - COVID19 UPDATES FOR PARTICIPATING ARTISTS

 

This exhibition will display as a physical and online exhibition.

 

As of Monday 11th May, we have been given direction that galleries and museums will be able to resume some activities. As such, shipping and delivery to this exhibition will be optional.

 

All artworks must remain available for sale or they will be declined without refund.

 

If you decide not to deliver an artwork, you must notify us on acceptance.

 

If you submitted an artwork that is larger than 4ft wide, as was permitted we do not have space in the physical gallery to display it. So if your artwork is accepted, please do not deliver, it will display in the online gallery only.

 

All acceptances to this exhibition, regardless of if you can deliver or if your submitted piece is larger than 4ft wide, will retain your earned Signature Status point. You will also still be in the chance to win an award and be represented in the online galleries at artists.ca and federationgallery.com for potential sales.
