Artscape VENUES

The Artscape Program provides artists opportunities to exhibit and sell their works of art in the community. Both public and private venues enhance their wall space with original art created by local artists.

The Artscape Coordinator matches individual artist’s work with suitable venues. Artscape offers three tiers: professional artists, emerging artists, and student artists. Shows are juried and run for 3-4 months. The exhibitions will be promoted on the ARTSCO website.

For info contact the Artscape Program Coordinator at director@artsco.ca.


ARTSCO is not currently accepting applications to exhibit. Sign up for our newsletter to here when we put out our next call for submissions.


 

HANGING INFORMATION:

Artscape Venue Measurements

This is a list of all the measurements you will need to gauge how many pieces of art to bring to each venue.

At the beginning of each list the number of runners are indicated, these are the strips of metal from which the chains hang (and from the chains the art!). Below that are a list of measurements, these indicate how long the runners are and how much vertical space there is to play with. In parenthesis show the number of runners which are that length and height from the floor.

Don’t forget to take into account spacing the art appropriately!

Feel free to contact the Artscape coordinator at info@artsco.ca if you have any questions.
