APPEL: Art Gallery of Burlington – Ceramic Courtyard Exhibition Call for Proposals

Art Gallery of Burlington – Ceramic Courtyard Exhibition Call for Proposals

The Art Gallery of Burlington is welcoming proposals from professional ceramists for its annual ceramic exhibition in the Dan Lawrie Family Courtyard for the summer of 2018.

The Annual Courtyard Installation at the AGB is a site specific installation of ceramic work (some mixed media is permitted as long as the work is primarily ceramic), that reflects some aspect of the space, ranging from the architecture, to the plantings, to the social interaction contained within the space. The artist is encouraged to engage with the water feature and is asked that much of the work is installed on the ground cover and the walls. This exhibition space is used as a public area within the building, including a space for people to eat lunch, private receptions and weddings; the artist is asked to consider that the installation does not interfere with these other uses. This exhibition is open to mid or late career artists with a proven exhibition record.

The Dan Lawrie Family Courtyard at the Art Gallery of Burlington is an enclosed open space measuring approximately 49.6 x 59 feet (16 x 17 metres) with a total area of 2907 square feet, divided between 1406 square feet of hard surface and 1501 square feet of plantings. A water feature with a fountain with three jets flows into a pool with a stone slab bridge. There are three entrances to the courtyard which is on two levels. There is a broad set of three stairs and a wheel chair accessible ramp connecting the different levels. Three walls of the courtyard are one story tall with textured concrete walls and windows (making the installation viewable from inside the building), and the fourth wall is two and a half stories tall with textured concrete and is suitable for a wall mounted installation. There are four trees in the plantings and various low growing ground cover.

Interested applicants should submit the following by June 30, 2017:

One page presenting the theme of the proposed exhibition
