International Artists Day YVR

Invitation to Submit

In celebration of International Artist Day we invite you to paticipate in the  2nd Annual Anonymous Art Show  held by 100 Braid St Studios in New Westminster. International Artist Day, launched in 2004, is now celebrated all around the world throughout North America, Europe and parts of Asia. 
We don’t think Monet will make the deadline for our art call but if you’re a living artist you are invited to submit your interest in participating in the show by filling out the form below.
Whether you are an emerging or established artist, we are looking for high quality art representative of your talent in either oil, acrylic or mixed media and textile (we are happy to discuss other options) but all art must be 12″ x 12″ x 1.5" and and will be judged by a panel of experienced Artists and Art Professionals in order to ensure high quality; there is no theme involved. The IAD selection committee at 100 Braid St reserves the right to refuse any work that we consider offensive or inappropriate to the public.  Art must ready to hang (wired on the back with two small I hooks, the wire must be adjustable), and signed on the back only. Once you have been accepted into the show you may submit up to three, 12”x 12” x 1.5” gallery wrapped canvases. The anonymous nature of the show ensures that all the art is treated equally, however the excitement of the unknown adds a special anticipation and excitement to the event. Entry fee is $25.00 for up to 3 pieces.

All the art will be for sale and every piece will be priced at $150.00 regardless of the artist and $100.00 per painting will be paid back to the artist when sold. The rest of the proceeds will be donated to the Arts Council of New Westminster and to cover the  cost of the show.

Instructions on art delivery, times and dates for drop off, hanging requirements, etc will be supplied once you have been accepted as a participant in the show. We will also provide guidelines for social media and instructions/postings for use on social media channels. Downloadable posters and brochures will also be made available.

Please submit your interest by filling out the following form as we will preview your website and social media channels for examples of your work (you do not need to submit the final work or photos of your work). If you are accepted into the show you will receive an email along with an invoice for the $25 entrance fee. You may pay by credit card or e-transfer. You should receive confirmation of acceptance within 7-14 business days.​
