Northern Quarter visual arts exhibitions are a chance for emerging and established artists to show their work in one of the city's premier food and music venues. Curated by artist Natalie Brake, shows are open to artists using all mediums, with preference given to local artists. We aim to provide exposure for artists while creating a space for great food, music and people to come together.
We are currently accepting submissions for FALL & WINTER 2019/20
Here are the guidelines:
Open to visual artists working in all media. All forms of visual art are eligible and work must be framed (due to our hanging system). The Northern Quarter prioritizes submissions from artists living in Victoria, BC.
All works in the show must be for sale. The Northern Quarter will take a 10% fee for credit card sales, otherwise, there is no commission on sales. Sale price is determined by the artist.
