Call for Artists: 2024 Autumn Art Sale Fundraiser

Application Deadline: June 30, 2024, at 11:59 pm EDT
Application Fee: $51.50 (non-refundable)

The McMichael Volunteer Committee’s Autumn Art Sale Fundraiser is open to all living Canadian and Indigenous fine artists and sculptors. All submitted artworks will be juried by a selection committee of professionals including gallery staff, curators, art educators, art collectors, artists and others with a strong background in art. Artists who have shown in previous years are welcome to re-apply. Applicants will be notified by email in mid- to late-August 2024. The McMichael Volunteer Committee reserves the right to use submitted photographed artwork for publicity (promotional postcards, ads and website) and reference purposes.

Guidelines

  1. For the purpose of this fundraiser, we accept all genres of original fine artwork only, excluding photography. Artworks that have already been reproduced to create products for sale should not be submitted. Original artworks that have been reproduced will not be accepted.
  2. Entries must not be prints, copies, derivatives, or based in any way on other copyrighted or published paintings, photographs or other artistic work.
  3. Artwork must be in impeccable condition and priced accordingly. Artworks must be appropriately prepared for immediate hanging. Oil and acrylic paintings on gallery style canvas with the painting wrapping the sides do not require framing. The Art Sale Co-Chairs will disqualify artworks that are misrepresented by the photos used in the selection process, artworks that are not original, inappropriately framed or in poor condition.

Apply Today!

Successful applicants will be allotted a metal panel 6ft x 7ft (W x H). Sculptors will receive a display area of approx 6ft x 6ft to display three-dimensional artwork mounted on a stable base. Artists or a representative for the artist must be in attendance for the duration of the Art Sale. Upon notification of acceptance into the 2024 Autumn Art Sale, a placement/booth fee of $251.50 will be due by September 15, 2024.

The Autumn Art Sale is a vital fundraising event in support of the McMichael Canadian Art Collection. 60% of each sale goes to the artist and 40% to the Volunteer Committee. We thank all who apply and look forward to a mutually successful event!
