Say it with Flowers 2019 - Open Call for Artist Submissions

The Abbotsford Arts Council is seeking submissions from artists who enjoy making art inspired by flowers. Local artists of all ages and skill levels are invited to create floral inspired art using diverse styles and mediums – sculpture, metalwork, textiles, glass, painting, drawing, photography, jewellery, print media, mixed media and even floral arrangement. The only criteria are that the work is inspired by flowers. This exhibition is an opportunity to raise funds for the programs initiated by the Abbotsford Arts Council that support arts in our community with 50% of the proceeds going directly towards participating artists.

The Say It with Flowers exhibit will be on display at Kariton Art Gallery (2387 Ware St.) from August 3 to August 31, 2019. The Kariton Gallery will host an opening reception on Saturday, August 3 from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m.

Artists must be a member of Abbotsford Arts Council to participate. (Pro-rated Memberships are valid July 1st 2019 - January 31st, 2020 at $10.00 for General & $5.00 for Seniors (65+) & Students.)

Artists will price their work at either $50 or $100. 

The Abbotsford Art Council reserves the right to supplement the show with additional work if we do not receive enough entries to fill the gallery.

Submissions will open on May 1st and will be accepted until June 15, 2019. (EXTENDED UNTIL JUNE 22ND)
