CAG Young Patrons are teaming up with Cartems Donuts to curate an exhibition at Cartems West Pender location!

CAG Young Patrons are teaming up with with Cartems Donuts to curate and select an exhibition for October 2018 that will be presented in the Cartems storefront on West Pender Street.

We are accepting submissions for either a solo or group exhibition that speaks to the theme of “Unlikely Futures”. This show will run for approximately one month and features an opening night with wine and donuts, actively promoted through social media coverage.

The featured artists or collective will be chosen by Krista Bailie, Director of Cartems Donuts and a panel comprised of CAG Young Patrons.

The selection committee will be judging work based on its ability to:
• activate and be in dialogue with the social space of Cartems Donuts
• strengthen community connections
• celebrate Vancouver’s rich and diverse arts and culture community

If you are interested in submitting your work, please apply by attaching your CV, artist statement and 5–6 images in a single PDF to [email protected]

Application Deadline is July 6th, at 5pm.
