In Conversation III: Poets Speak, Artists Respond (OPEN CALL TO POETS)

The Coast Collective Art Centre is looking for POEMS for our 2019 Poetry and Artwork Exhibition!

For this show, we are inviting poets to send in their poems, which will be interpreted by artists in their 2D or 3D medium of choice.

The artist will create artwork inspired by their poem of choice, and the poem and artwork will be displayed in the gallery side by side throughout the show. This show will be held during National Poetry Month 2019. A selection of poems will be read by the poets during the Meet-the-Poets-and-Artists Reception.

Submission Deadline (Poetry): November 28, 2018
Submission Deadline (Desire to Submit Artwork): November 28, 2018
Poems Sent to Artists: December 6, 2018
Poem Selection: First come, first selected (tell me your top 3 in case your first choice is taken)

Submission Deadline (Artwork): March 6, 2019
Poets Notified of Interpreted Works: March 15, 2019

Drop off Artwork: Wednesday March 27 to Sunday March 31, 2019
Meet-the-Poets-and-Artists Reception: Saturday, April 6, 1:00pm – 3:00pm
Pick up Artwork: Sunday, April 14, 2019

Poets, please submit your poems in .doc, .docx, .rtf, or .pdf format.  If there is a great deal of formatting (indentations, spacing) .pdf is recommended.  Each poet may submit up to 4 poems.  We cannot guarantee that all poems will be selected.  However, if a poet has no poems selected, one will be chosen for an interactive wall where we will invite visitors to the gallery to create artwork inspired by the poems.  Poems selected for inclusion in the show will be subject to the same $10 hanging fee as other works of art (unless they are submitted by a Coast Collective Associate Member), as we will need to print and frame and hang them.  There is no application fee.  If the online form doesn’t work, please email your poems to gallery@coastcollective.ca

Artists, make sure you let me know by the deadline that you want to participate so that I can send you the poems to choose from.  You can email gallery@coastcollective.ca to sign up.  If you are not a Coast Collective member, please submit some samples of your artwork or a link to your website for our revision.  There is no adjudication fee, but there is a $10 hanging fee for any artwork included in the show (except for Coast Collective Associate Members).

This Artwork Submission deadline is for office purposes – I need images for the poster, and artwork information to prepare wall cards and the sales system.
