EVENT: Pagan Art Exposition 2011

Pagan Art Exposition 2011
May 21st to May 22nd, 2011
Canadian National Pagan Conference, Gaia Gathering 2011
Concordia University: Sir George Williams Campus

The Montreal Pagan Resource Centre (MPRC) is proud to coordinate Montreal's second Pagan Art Exposition as part of the Canadian National Pagan Conference, Gaia Gathering 2011. Our goal is to showcase artistic work created by pagan artists from our community, but also to give these artists a venue in which they can present their work to a larger audience.

The art exposition will be held on the 7th floor of Concordia University’s Sir George Williams Campus (1455 De Maisonneuve Blvd. West).

The artwork should reflect pagan themes, but this is not a requirement. In the spirit of promoting artists within our pagan community, we are looking to work with artists who themselves follow a pagan spiritualistic path.

We must receive your application no later than April 30th 2011. You can submit your completed application, along with your $20 processing fee, to Le Melange Magique (1928 Ste. Catherine Street West). For the $20 processing fee, we accept cash, cheque, or money order (made payable to John David Hickey).

Roles and Responsibilities

* All artistic submissions will be reviewed by a jury that consists of MPRC volunteers. The MPRC jury reserves the right to choose the art works as they see fit. The MPRC jury will NOT select art that promotes violence or hatred of any kind.
* All artwork must be delivered to the exposition space by the artist or proxy after 12pm, May 20th and must be removed from the exposition space by 4pm, May 22nd by the artist or proxy. Any artwork not retrieved within a week of the Art Show will become the property of the MPRC.
* All art work must be ready for display.
* All pieces must be firmly attached to a base. For three-dimensional pieces, we suggest that the artist provide proper display supports.
* IMPORTANT: Artists are responsible to insure their own art works.  The MPRC, Concordia University, or Gaia Gathering is NOT responsible any for lost, stolen, or damaged works.

Application Fees and Sales
The MPRC is asking for a $20 processing fee per artist who wishes to submit their work for the Art Exposition. If the artist’s work is not retained for the exposition, the artist will be refunded their $20.
If the artist has registered for the Gaia Gathering conference, there is no $20 processing fee.

For the $20 processing fee, we accept cash, cheque, or money order (made payable to John David Hickey).

If artists wish to sell their artwork, they must either purchase a vending space from Gaia Gathering, coordinate with other artists to reserve a vending space, or share a space with another vendor. Any sales of the artwork in the show must be made in the Gaia Gathing Vendor’s room between the purchaser and the artist.

The MPRC requests a donation of 10% of any sales made during the Art Exposition, which can be collected at the end of the exposition (Sunday, May 22nd).
