Artist Call for ArtRich 2019

August 15, 2019

The Richmond Arts Coalition, with support from the Richmond Art Gallery and operating funds from the City of Richmond, is pleased to present ArtRich 2019, our third bi-annual, juried exhibition for local artists at the Richmond Art Gallery. The exhibition will take place from Saturday, December 7th, 2019, to Sunday, January 5th, 2020. The exhibition provides an opportunity for emerging and established artists from Richmond and nearby communities to exhibit together and celebrate local talent.

ArtRich 2019 looks to profile artists with a connection to the Lower Mainland. Entries are not expected to fit any specific theme – we want to see the work you are most excited to share!

The membership fee is $10 per year (or $45 if you choose a five-year membership). Online entry payment options include the ability to include your membership fee with your entry fee.
