Peake Street

Peake Street is comprised of over 100 enthusiastic Island artists. The collective mounted its first show in February of 2005 in a former garage space attached to a family home on Peake Street. Since that time, the collective has exhibited in a number of Charlottetown Galleries including The Kier Gallery, The Gallery at the Guild, and Confederation Centre Art Gallery. I, Defined will mark their first exhibition in the small town market gallery.

Peake Street operates  under the umbrella of this town is small with a mandate to provide experiences whereby emerging artists can exhibit alongside established artists. They regularly mount artist challenges and themed group shows encouraging members to work outside their comfort zones. Shows are not ‘juried’ and you become a member of Peake Street when you choose to exhibit with them. Organizers hope I, Defined will introduce a significant number of first time exhibitors.

Call for Submissions: Monochromatic (shades of one colour) works at the Gallery @ The Guild

Deadline to declare intention to participate October 31st 2014

The Peake Street Collective will be exhibiting square, Monochromatic (shades of one colour) works at The Gallery @ The Guild. Both new and established Peake Street artists are encouraged and welcomed to participate in this artist challenge.

All works will be grouped into arrays and wall mounted for exhibition. The creative challenge for this exhibit is to limit the size of each piece to exactly 12” x 12” (30.5 cm x 30.5 cm), and limit the colour selection. All 2D mediums that can be on paper, fabric or cardboard (or similar light, flat materials) and unframed are welcome. The monochromatic colour theme means that each artist will choose one main colour for their piece, and mix that colour with white and/or black to create a variety of shades. Please contact the Peake Street email address below if you have any questions about this theme.

Artists are encouraged to submit up to four works to this show. A minimum of one work per artist will be exhibited. Please make sure that each 12×12 work can be displayed independently, if submitting multiple works.

Artists will be asked to pay a small fee to claim their position as a member, and to help fund future shows and events. The fee will be from $5 – $10 depending on an individual member’s ability to pay.

This show will include an online program. Coordinators will work with artists to feature each artist in this show.

The show will run from December 9, 2014 – January 4, 2015. Please send notice of your intention to submit to by October 31, 2014. Note that your finished piece will not need to be completed until late November.

For further information, please email Peake Street at the address above, or visit the Peake Street Facebook page or website

The show is non-juried, all submissions will be accepted so long as they are not deemed offensive.
