Quest Art Call for 2019 Exhibition Proposals

Deadline: Wednesday, November 1, 2017, 5 pm

Quest Art is located in Midland, Ontario, on Southern Georgian Bay. Quest Art’s Upper Gallery exhibitions showcase individual artists, collectives and curated exhibitions that demonstrate excellence and innovation in contemporary art practices that critically address current issues within the field of art, humanities or science relevant to our demographic. As part of our mandate, Quest Art celebrates diversity and encourages the presentation and promotion of art practices by all artists from across Canada. Each year the Curator and Exhibition Committee work to schedule four professional exhibitions, which pay Carfac fees to selected artists. Quest Art’s Upper Gallery is located on the 2nd floor of the Midland Cultural Centre and is approximately 30’x40’ in area. The Upper Gallery has 12’ high ceilings, many access points to electricity, 2 points of entry, secured access, concrete floors, ceiling suspension capabilities & natural light.

Quest Art acknowledges Midland as the ancestral home to the Ouendat and geographical proximity to Beausoleil First Nations on Christian Island.
