Call for Submissions to Neighbourhood Gallery

Group shows at Neighbourhood Gallery  for 2018

Neighbourhood Gallery has several  open call group shows happening this year. We invite and welcome your submissions.

We do not charge a submission fee and take no commission. We do not insure work but the galleries are in a Unitarian Universalist Church. If the work is sold during the show we take no commission but we are a charitable organization we would gladly take a donation that could be 10-20% of the price of the piece. Donations of $20 or more will be issued a charitable tax receipt. This donation helps to maintain the gallery walls etc. The Curator will create an invitation and send it to all of the artists and promote the show through NUUC and environs. You are encouraged to invite guests, use your own social media networks and come to the opening and closing. All sales happen through the artist so best contact information will be on the label, email or phone number.

We look forward to your submission. The dates below are firm, no exceptions as the schedule is tight.

Canadian Sesquicentennial Quilt  

In celebration of the 150th anniversary of Canada, and as part of the Inaugural Canadian Craft Biennial, individuals from across Canada submitted quilted squares to be included in the Canadian Sesquicentennial Quilt. Participants were encouraged to share their thoughts and memories about their region and ideas on what it means to be Canadian. Many of those who submitted quilt squares had immigrated to Canada or came from families who immigrated, and their work centred abound themes of welcoming, hope, opportunity, and freedom. Many others chose to highlight Canada’s natural resources and beauty, from the grand mountain ranges and breathtaking northern lights, to the fruit orchards and wheat fields, right down to the smallest wild blueberry. Others still focused on particular symbols of Canadian national or regional identity, like the maple leaf, of course, and the ubiquitous Timbit. All of these unique quilt squares together emanate a sense of pride for Canada’s land and people, and a sense of optimism for continuing innovation, sustainability and diversity in Canada’s future.   150th quilt project  

My section is in the second row third from the right. I imagine Canada as a group of people in a choir, many voices from many places and  ethnicities. Each Province and Territory is represented by one person of that choir and size and placement  is only with regards to number of people and hectares of land for each place.
