2021 Call for Submissions | Beaux Arts

Updated: May 12, 2021

A Celebration of the Sculptural form in Metal

Please note that this call for entry has been changed to clarify and expand the scope of the original call, and that we have extended the Beaux-Arts deadline for application to January 15, 2021. Read the memo here.

Call for Entry:

Vancouver Metal Arts Association in partnership with the Italian Cultural Centre Gallery (ICC) will host a juried metal arts group exhibition for April of 2021. The Vancouver Metal Arts Association and the ICC Gallery are seeking metal artists who are willing to explore (figuratively and literally) the stylistic theme of Beaux Arts.

Beaux arts strive to merge classical forms with non-traditional use of materials, methods and technologies. In essence, this exhibition seeks metal artists who are willing to bridge, and meld, the world of the traditional with the new and innovative. The year 2021 marks the 150th birth anniversary of Italian-Canadian artist Charles Marega, whose work is characterized by his devotion to this artistic practice and perspective.

Update (December 2, 2020): ICC and VMAA are very pleased to announce that we will be able to offer CARFAC artist fees to those accepted for exhibition.
