Call to Local Artists                  

We are looking for artwork to be displayed at the Merritt Courthouse Art Gallery from January

​20​th to February 11, 2017 on the theme, “ELEMENTS: Earth, Wind, Fire and Ice”.

The medium is open, so we will be accepting paintings, drawings, sculpture, pottery, fabric art, and photography. All work must be appropriately presented for display and only original artwork will be accepted. Anyone may submit their work for review, but there will be a quality expectation.

Artwork may be For Sale, with a commission of 20% going to the Art Gallery.

Artists need to be a member of the Nicola Valley Community Arts Council to submit work, only $10 yearly.

The deadline for submissions will be

Wednesday, January 18​th, with no exceptions.

The Gallery will closed from Christmas Day for three weeks, opening again on January 18​th.

If you have questions, please contact me by reply email,

or call the Art Gallery at 250-378-6515, and, if I am not here, please leave a message.

Please pass this email on to all Nicola Valley Artists that you may have in your email list.

Thank you and warm regards,
