Call To Artists! // Postcard Project & Studio Sale



Mon, May 24th, 2021 to Wed, Jun 30th, 2021


10:00 am to 11:59 pm


Since 1989, the Alternator Centre for Contemporary Art has supported a wide variety of Canadian artists through exhibitions, community programming, and collaboration.

We have dedicated ourselves to fostering the arts in our community through supporting and developing the talents of local and national artists over the years. To commemorate our 32nd year operating, we would like to invite our membership to celebrate with us!

This year our Annual Members’ Exhibition has a new spin and timeframe. The Annual Members’ Exhibition: Postcard Project & Studio Sale, will take on two distinct components. Artists will have the option to participate in either the Postcard Project, Studio Sale, or both. Participants are not required to submit to both aspects but are highly encouraged to.

The Postcard Project aims to foster connection despite these times of social and physical distancing. 32 Alternator member artists (one for each year of our existence!) will be invited to create 10 original postcards. The works may be watercolour, collage, photographs or any other 2D media that will fit on the 4”x6” postcard substrate (postcard blanks will be provided by the Alternator). In the spirit of the Alternator mandate, we welcome experimental interpretations of this project. A grocery list? Instructions for performance art? A map leading to a buried treasure? We love it!! This will be a limited run of 320 postcards so don’t delay in registering as spots are limited, first come, first served!
