CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS
The Lakeshore Grounds Interpretive Centre is inviting artists of all levels - amateurs, hobbyists, and professionals alike - to submit original visual artwork of any medium to be considered for a community exhibition.
We are seeking submissions that connect to the following themes:
History & Legacy, many stories colour the Lakeshore Grounds; these stories speak to the diverse past, and lived experience of the space we share. This is intended to cover the artist's values of local history, and its echoing effects that resonate on the Lakeshore Grounds today.
Space & Place, the Lakeshore Grounds is made up of natural and built spaces. How this landscape speaks to us, what we see in the spaces, structures, and natural environment is as unique as each person who lives, works, and plays at the Lakeshore Grounds.
Experience & Memory, the Lakeshore Grounds resonate at a different frequency with each individual who shares this space. These subjective and unique experiences speak through memories, dreams, and stories.
The exhibition will be displayed in the Third Floor Gallery of the Lakeshore Grounds Interpretive Centre, at the corner of Kipling and Lakeshore in South Etobicoke. In Your Eyes will run from January 17th, 2019 to March 30, 2019.
