Submissions: Incoming! 2021

Incoming! Call for Submissions
Deadline: March 26, 2021

Hamilton Artists Inc. is pleased to present Incoming! a project addressing needs of newcomer, immigrant and refugee artists. Incoming! includes free workshops, events, and an art exhibition in spring/summer 2021 supporting visual artists who are new to Canada. The art exhibition will include 5 artists exhibited in window spaces around Hamilton, taking place from May 25 - June 12, 2021. The exhibition will present work by artists who were born and/or lived outside of Canada, and now want to establish themselves in the Hamilton art community.

We are asking artists to submit their artwork for consideration. Please note that selected artists must be able to adapt their work to be shown as a window display. This could include reproducing original artwork as large format prints, printing costs to be covered by the Inc. Window sizes and locations will vary. The artists selected for the exhibition will be paid an artist fee.
