Leighton Art Centre’s 19th Annual Juried Members Show will exhibit April 24 – June 6, 2021.
The exhibition format(s) will depend on the current state of health regulations at that time.
All Leighton Art Centre artists in good standing are invited to submit up to three pieces in any medium (except digitally produced artwork) to be judged by a panel for inclusion in the exhibition.
If an artist has a piece(s) accepted, they must maintain their membership through the exhibition (until at least June 6, 2021). All submitted pieces must be for sale and will be subject to LAC’s 60/40 commission rate (60% to the artist, 40% to LAC).
The submission form contains more detailed information on submission guidelines and conditions of participation; please read them carefully before submitting.
Deadline for submissions: 12 pm (noon MST) on Friday, March 19, 2021.
Deadline for delivery of accepted pieces to Leighton Art Centre: April 17, 2021.
Each month, our Gallery Shop (or shop.leightoncentre.org if we are temporarily closed due to health regulations) features up to five artists, each with an approximately 3′ x 6′ space to display a small collection of their works. The artist chooses which pieces to submit to fill the space available (e.g. one large painting, multiple smaller paintings or a combination – your choice!).
Here’s how it works:
The Leighton Art Centre invites submissions from artists, artist groups, and curators of all artistic backgrounds working in all genres, styles, and mediums for exhibition in 2022. We endeavor to provide a platform for artists at all levels of their artistic careers, as well as present diverse programming and a stimulating exhibition schedule that challenges, and appeals to, a wide audience.
Deadline for submissions: 12 pm (noon) on Monday, July 5, 2021.
Artists will be notified of their result by July 30, 2021.
The Leighton Art Centre preference is for exhibitions that are for sale, however, we are willing to work with artists and curators to pursue grant funding to cover fees for projects such as installations and non-commercial exhibitions. The LAC takes a commission of 40% on all sales. All exhibitions are organized by the LAC in coordination with the artist. Exhibitions generally run between four and eight consecutive weeks.
