Barns Art Market Exhibition Opportunities
Artscape is currently accepting submissions from visual artists, craftspeople and designer/makers who wish to participate in the Barns Art Market, taking place May 28 – October 15, 2011 at the Artscape Wychwood Barns.
The submission deadline is April 15, 2011.
The Call for Submissions and Application Form are available at www.barnsartmarket.ca.
The Barns Art Market will feature 25 exhibitors once a month over the course of six months. Artists, craftspeople and designer/makers have the opportunity to utilize a 10’ x 10’ booth space for which they need to supply their own booth structure. Participants in the Barns Art Market will be selected by a professional jury, with consideration to diversity of medium and quality of work being sold. Artists are welcome to participate in a maximum of three art markets.
Artscape has transformed the historic Wychwood TTC streetcar repair barns located in Toronto’s St. Clair and Christie neighbourhood into the Artscape Wychwood Barns – a 60,000 sq. ft. multifaceted community centre where arts and culture, environmental leadership, heritage preservation, urban agriculture and affordable housing are brought together to foster a strong sense of community. The Barns Art Market will coincide with The Stop's Farmers’ Market, which attracts hundreds of people to the area every Saturday.
