Calls for Submission
A juried group exhibition of Alberta Artists. Over a four-year period, the ASA invited submissions to the respective exhibitions Fire, Water, and Air, concluding the series with Earth.
The Call for Submissions went out to all Alberta artists: “Open to interpretation; the emphasis is on stillness either literally or formally. It may be time – lapse or still frame inspired as in photography or separated from time as in the fragment of a dream or a fleeting memory of the past. Geological and fossilized stratification could also be of interest both in terms of painting or sculpture.”
The artworks shown in this Alberta Society of Artists juried group exhibition have been selected based upon individual responses to the original call for submissions:
From the Merriam Webster dictionary:
“The origin and etymology of NOCTURN: Middle English nocturne, borrowed from Anglo-French, borrowed from Medieval Latin nocturnus,
going back to Latin, feminine of nocturnus “of the night.”
The Alberta Society of Artists invited all Juried Members to submit to the exhibition, The Artists’ Choice 2020. This annual open-themed exhibition highlights the strengths and interests of the individual artists of the ASA.
Within the context of Exposure Festival, we stretched the rules, requesting submissions that related to either the purposeful concept of overexposure or the purposeful concept of underexposure.
Each year, the Society invites all emerging artists who are full-time undergraduate students at a post-secondary university in Alberta to submit artworks along with an Artist Statement to our Scholarship Award incentive.
The Alberta Society of Artists invites all artists in Alberta (must be 18 years of age or older) to submit to the exhibition, “Reflections & Shadows.”
The content and meaning of this theme apply to an artist’s Personal, Sociological, or Environmental reflections relating to such matters as change or dissent. The work can be about internal or other perceived issues relating to the phenomena of Reflection and Shadow.
The Alberta Society of Artists invites all artists in Alberta (must be 18 years of age or older) to submit to the exhibition, “Into the Light.” A Provincial travelling exhibition, the theme follows the Alberta Society of Artist’s prior exhibition, “Nocturn” that celebrated darkness and was analogous to the statement by Francis Bacon: “In order for the light to shine so brightly, the darkness must be present.”
