Call For Entries for Artists

Canal Street Art Gallery presents: The Vermont Salon, a new open call exhibition hung in the floor-to-ceiling Salon style. 

The Vermont Salon will be celebrating its inaugural opening this September in the Gallery’s new space. This art show provides the opportunity for artists of all levels to express themselves in all subjects and mediums, and to share their work. The historic way of installation means art is hung closely together on the wall, with sizes and artists interspersed throughout the exhibit. The Salon, which was popular in the 19th century, can offer the public a unique chance to view art from many more talented local and regional artists than a typical modern group show.

The Vermont Salon embraces some of the aesthetics and structure of the original Salons, held by the Royal Academies of Art, in both France, beginning in 1648, and in England, beginning in 1768. One of the beginning goals of these large scale Royal Academy Salons was to provide venues where artists, including emerging artists, could show their work and garner patronage. Before the modern gallery and art fair, it was also common in Europe and America to hang private collections in the floor-to-ceiling manner. 

The Canal Street Art Gallery’s Vermont Salon will bring this classical way of showing art into the contemporary. The art show is inclusive of all art. The opportunity to exhibit is open to the public. The Vermont Salon will celebrate the abundance and diversity of art created by artists everyday. Artists of all career levels, experience, and with or without formal training, are welcome to exhibit their artwork.

Artists may submit up to three artworks to exhibit in the Vermont Salon. Submissions are due on August 29th, and submitting is free. There is an exhibition fee of $35. This fee goes toward artwork cataloging, installation, and the Gallery’s extensive promotion and advertising package. For this show, artists may submit one artwork with a maximum dimension in any direction of thirty-six inches, and two artworks with a maximum dimension in any direction of twelve inches. All measurements are for artwork only, not including framing. Visit http://canalstreetartgallery.com/call-for-entry-vermont-salon.html for all details on submission requirements and to complete artist registration, artwork submission, and email artwork images. 

The Vermont Salon opens September 16th and is on view to the public through November 12th. Join the Gallery on 3rd Friday Gallery Night in Historic Downtown Bellows Falls from 5-7pm, September 16th, to celebrate and Meet the Artists.
