VISUAL SECTOR SURVEY

The NEWFOUNDLAND LABRADOR VISUAL SECTOR SURVEY is produced by VANL-CARFAC as an informational service. Neither the galleries listed nor VANL-CARFAC can assume liability for any problems that may arise from its use or for any errors or omissions contained herein.

Copyright, all rights reserved. No part of this Survey may be reproduced or transmitted in any form or by any means, without the prior written permission of VANL-CARFAC.

©2010 VANL-CARFAC

The purpose of this survey is to give a comprehensive overview of the exhibition, residency and training opportunities available to visual artists in this province. We have tried to cast the net as widely as possible to include alternative spaces such as retail and bed and breakfast spaces which show artwork, artist collectives, etc. This is intended to aid artists of all levels of experience in assessing where to send their work for consideration, and will hopefully increase submission levels overall to spaces and programs in this province.

Artists are encouraged to use written contracts for all engagements. Sample contracts for various uses are contained in Artists’ Contracts, by CARFAC Ontario, for sale through VANL-CARFAC. Artists should consult with galleries and programs directly to confirm their requirements before making submissions, as all information is subject to change.

We appreciate the cooperation of all survey participants in creating a picture of the opportunities available to visual artists in Newfoundland Labrador. If you know of a space or group which should be included, or which is currently listed as ‘did not respond’, please forward their information to us at vanl-carfac@nf.aibn.com as soon as possible in order to have them included.

We will update listings in this Survey on an as-needed basis. All changes of address, program details, contact information etc. should be sent to vanl-carfac@nf.aibn.com with Change of Gallery Survey Information in the subject line.

Artist Exhibition Fee Paid: The Craft Council Gallery has been, and continues to be, committed to the principle of artist fees for work in exhibitions. The Gallery has recently reviewed its approach to paying artist fees, with the following policy.
The Gallery actively markets the works in almost all of its exhibits, and would therefore be exempt from paying fees under current CARFAC guidelines.
However, the Gallery recognizes different levels and categories of shows – with some being more conceptual and others having a very specific marketing focus – and has therefore decided to set the following policy:
Exhibits with a conceptual focus, and those which include less traditional forms of craft and art that push the boundaries of artistic development and which are unlikely to find a receptive market will have the artist fees increased when possible, with a goal of reaching the recommended CARFAC fees for main gallery shows. Such exhibits are often curated exhibits, solo or small group shows.
Large group shows with a major marketing focus, such as theme shows, the Annual Members Exhibit and the Christmas show, will not have a budget for artist fees. Other Craft Council exhibitions, whether in the Annex Gallery, elsewhere in Devon House or outside the Devon House Craft Centre will continue to be assessed individually, with the principles described above taken into account.

EASTERN EDGE GALLERY
Artist-Run Centre

72 Harbour Drive,
St John’s
NL A1C 6K1

Tel (709) 739 1882
Email : easternedgegallery[at]gmail.com
Website : www.easternedge.ca
Contact Person : Michelle Bush, Director

Mandate
Eastern Edge Gallery is Newfoundland and Labrador’s first non-profit artist-run centre. Established in 1984, it was incorporated as a non-profit organization in 1991, and received charitable status from Revenue Canada in 1995. Our non-juried space, The Rogue, opened in 1995 and the PIN-IN Gallery devoted to 1-inch button projects was inaugurated in 2005. The Gallery is situated in downtown St. John’s, the capital city. St. John’s supports a significant concentration of the provincial population and a burgeoning cultural community. Overlooking the St. John’s harbour, Eastern Edge offers support, professional development, a sense of community, information and resource-sharing and a meaningful context for contemporary artistic activity.

Eastern Edge remains committed to exhibiting contemporary Canadian and International art including visual, audio, interactive, performance, film and video, installation and new media. The gallery encourages work from feminist, social and culturally diverse and inclusive perspectives and is dedicated to rigorous activity locally. Increased activity and visibility within the community has challenged Eastern Edge to build upon its endeavors and ignite new possibilities. For example, approximately 90% of all exhibiting artists at Eastern Edge come to St. John’s and visiting artists and interact in the community through artist talks, performances and special projects such as our Outreach programs that brings artists, high school students and community organizations together through workshops. These projects encourage new audiences with a broader scope and creative thinking. This upcoming year also marks the 25th anniversary of the centre and the 10th anniversary of the 24 hour Art Marathon, a major summer visual arts festival that celebrates creativity of visual artists, musicians, writers, and performers.

The gallery has a membership of over 100 and the Programming Committee is formed of board members and invited peers. Six exhibitions are programmed per year in the main space, including an annual members’ exhibition, with regular artist talks, workshops and panel discussions. Fully committed to the highest standards of professional treatment of artists, in all aspects of the centre’s activities, the gallery is a supportive space for art, which explores new and challenging ideas, questions, concerns, awareness, and sensibilities. The gallery pays artists exhibition fees based on the recommended fee schedule declared by the Canadian Artist’s Representative (CARFAC). Regular programming is created through submissions that seek the support of Eastern Edge’s facilities and services for public presentation.

Eastern Edge accepts proposals from individuals, groups and collectives in all visual arts media. We are dedicated to cultural diversity in our programming and encourage applications from contemporary artists and curators identifying as members of GLBT (gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgendered), Aboriginal (status, non-status, Inuit and Metis) and all other culturally diverse communities. Regular programming submissions are solicited through a general annual national call with a deadline of March 31st. The selection committee reviews submissions within the context of Eastern Edge Gallery’s mandate and goals and makes recommendations to the board within 6 weeks of the deadline. The selection committee is comprised of the Director, 3 – 5 board members and 2 community members.

Regular programming proposals must include:

Mandate
The Historic Sites Association of Newfoundland and Labradors (HAS) is a volunteer, non-profit organization with a mandate to present the province’s history and heritage. In addition to retail operations throughout the province, events, traveling exhibits and ceremonies, we currently manage the Heritage Art Gallery at 309 Water Street in St John’s. The HAS has successfully opened three shows in the gallery in partnership with local artists who have interpreted Signal Hill, Brigus and now Mummering through a variety of media. We have also received educational material from Parks Canada to accurately present the history of the show themes to the public. The programming of the Heritage Art Gallery will support this mandate by presenting images of Newfoundland and Labrador’s culture and heritage created by local artists. All media will be represented.

Submissions

Requirements: A jury committee will review all artwork. Pieces chosen to be included in the exhibit must be ready for display and must be available for purchase. A gallery commission of 60% of the retail price will be paid to the artist within 30 days of the conclusion of the show for sold pieces. All media will be considered, for example, paintings, drawings, photography, textile work and sculptures. Artists living outside of St. John’s may submit via e-mail with a digital image with a resolution of at least 300 dpi. However, online submissions must have a fully completed submission form attached and accepted artwork must be available for the installation date.

Mandate
I opened this gallery back in Spring 2008 because I felt as a recent graduate of Memorial University, Grenfell Campus’ Visual Arts Program, there was nowhere in town to display my work. I wanted to expose Corner Brook to the local talent that comes out of the college. The gallery displays all original modern art works, including painting, print sculpture, textile, silkscreen printed clothing, handmade soaps, handmade jewelry, glass blowing and more. All of the artists in the gallery are local Newfoundland artists, mainly from the west coast. The gallery is located in downtown Corner Brook on one of the main streets of the city. It is tucked away in an upstairs office space which has a lot of character because of its age.

Mandate
The Southern Shore Folk Arts Council is a non-profit organization governed by a volunteer
board of directors. The mandate of the organization is

  1. to unite various members of the arts community into a central body,
  2. to hold an annual Folk Festival “The Southern Shore Shamrock Festival” in the Southern Shore area and
  3. to preserve the cultural heritage of the area in its own unique way. This year (2009) in conjunction with the Shamrock Festival, the SSFAC coordinated the Southern Shore Art Exhibition. This event was successfully operated for eighteen years by Mrs. Margaret Best, however, this year she felt it was time for a change and approached our organization to coordinate the event. As an arts organization, the presentation of visual art falls within our mandate and consequently we included the exhibition as part of the overall festival offerings. This year the exhibition was located in our existing assembly space (Arts Centre) and was administered similar to previous years. The exhibition was open to artists originally from the Southern Shore or presently living here.

Submissions
Requirements: Number of pieces in exhibition: Five framed pieces larger than 10” x 12” or equivalent amount of space. A reasonable number of unframed pieces can be displayed on a tabletop unit so the number will not affect the wall space. While various types of reproduction of art work have a place, it is our intention that this exhibition be for original works. Photocopies not accepted. Unframed Paintings/Prints must be protected with plastic/shrink wrapping. Prints must also be on acid-free paper. All works are labeled (business card size) on the front with title, medium, artist and price. Artwork submitted does not have to be for sale and work that has been previously exhibited is acceptable.

An interdisciplinary approach between programs is encouraged.

Unique features of the program include studio field trips, gallery visits and professional guest artist lectures and demonstrations which support the hands-on studio component of the curriculum as well as the business of art. Opportunities to establish professional links at the provincial, national and international level are encouraged in all areas of visual art. Upon graduation the students host a year-end exhibition of their work and produce a catalogue which highlights their art work and personal development over the two years of study.
