OPEN CALL for Submissions – SNAP Community Gallery
SNAP welcomes submissions from emerging Edmonton artists, collectives, curators and collaborations practicing in all printmaking & print-related media (including but not limited to: photography, installation, video, drawing, collage, printed matter, zines and artists books).
The Community Gallery is a public exhibition space mandated to exhibit works by local emerging artists, projects, works in process and other proposals for the exhibition of new works. SNAP’s Community Gallery Space is programmed through an open call for submissions as well as through curated exhibitions of visiting artists and our artists in residence. Exhibitions are selected based on artistic excellence, engagement with contemporary print media, new project formats and as a complement or in dialogue with our Main Gallery programming.
The Society of Northern Alberta Print-Artists is an Artist-Run Non-profit in Edmonton, Alberta dedicated to the production, presentation and dissemination of Fine Art Printmaking and Contemporary Print Media.
