ARTISTS! Don't forget to pick up your PRE-SHRUNK surfaces and get creating!

Just a friendly reminder that our call for submissions for our annual PRE-SHRUNK show closes on January 7th, so make sure to pick up your 4" x 5" surface at either the NSCAD Art Supply Store or Deserres or create your own (all mediums are accepted but if unsure, call us!)  We hope to receive all submissions and get back to artists by the following week, as the show opens on January 23rd!

Here are all the details:



Well this is it! It’s officially time to announce our annual open call for submissions! Pre-Shrunk is a much loved annual group show that asks artists to create work on a surface measuring 4” x 5”. We encourage submissions from artists both established and emerging, created in the medium of their choosing.

  do not measure 4” x 5”  will not be accepted.
- Artists can submit no more than five pieces. 
- If works are on canvas, we ask that you do NOT attach a hanging 
  device (i.e.: wire or hooks – the gallery will take care of this for continuity)
- If you plan on working on paper, please mount your works
   onto a sturdy 4” x 5”  surface that can be hung on the wall.
- Submissions must be new, and not previously shown.
- Please include your name, phone number, email address, and list of   
   materials used along with your submission.
