Call For Submissions – Kootenay Queer and Trans Art Show 2018

A group of local artists are working together to organize a juried art exhibition in Nelson, BC which will coincide with Kootenay Pride Week, August 27th to September 3rd 2018. The group is seeking submissions from LGBTQ+ artists of all art and craft disciplines for the selected group exhibition.

“We see this first show as a starting point and as an opportunity to highlight the work of queer and trans/gender non-conforming artists living in the Kootenays.” says art show organizer, Samonte Cruz.

“It is our hope that it can grow into an annual arts festival showcasing local LGBTQ+ artists, and featuring community arts workshops, artist talks, live performances, and an arts & crafts market.” Cruz adds.

The Application Deadline is May 26th 2018 at 5pm, PST
