"Call for Artists: Proposals Being Accepted Exhibition Proposals for the 2007 Exhibition Season"
2006-04-26 until 2006-05-15
Gallery Vertigo is now accepting Exhibition Proposals for the 2007 exhibition season. Deadline for proposals is May 15, 2006. General Information: Gallery Vertigo is an artist-run gallery which operates under the auspices of the North Okanagan Artists Alternative, a registered non-profit society. We are located in downtown Vernon, British Columbia, Canada, upstairs in the historical Winnipeg Union Bank building, Suite #1, 3001-31st Street. Operation of the gallery is supported through the rental of six studio spaces on site, as well as through memberships, donations and fundraising. The gallery was founded in 2002. Community involvement is a primary focus of the gallery with liaisons established with other galleries in the region, with Okanagan College, UBC Okanagan, with local schools, and with not-for-profit artists and writers groups.
Gallery Vertigo hosts up to sixteen exhibitions of art per year in two exhibition spaces. Two exhibitions will generally run concurrently. Emphasis is on showing innovative and experimental work by emerging and mid-career artists in all mediums. Exhibitions are selected by a committee comprised of arts professionals from our region. Gallery Vertigo does not exhibit artwork which will also be exhibited elsewhere in the North Okanagan within six months, and does not re-exhibit individual artists' work within three years. Solo proposals, group proposals and proposals from curators are invited.
Gallery Specifications: Gallery One is roughly 288 square feet with 45 running feet of wall space. Gallery Two is roughly 126 square feet with 43 running feet of wall. A gallery floor plan is available upon request. Ceilings in both galleries are 9 feet high with adjustable halogen track lighting. While temperatures are kept within the parameters of generally accepted museum standards, humidity control is not yet available.
Artist Fees: We regret that we are not able to provide artist fees at this time. Shipping costs are currently the responsibility of the artist(s) as is crating of artwork. Gallery Vertigo is responsible for hanging and promotion of exhibitions.
