this town is small x Receiver Coffee: Call for Submissions 2022
SUBMISSIONS CLOSED: Receiver’s Victoria Row location is being renovated, and as a result, this call for submissions is closed until they reopen and we can reevaluate the exhibition space. Stay tuned for updates on our 2022 calls for submissions & programming.
this town is small is seeking exhibition proposals for the 2022 programming season at Receiver Coffee (128 Richmond Street, Charlottetown, PE). Professional artists that are currently residing in PEI are eligible to apply.
Artists are invited to submit recent artworks that are original, forward-thinking, and incite conversation, with preference given to works that have not yet been exhibited in the region. We are enthusiastic about artists’ most recent endeavours and art forms that propel contemporary production and incite conversation. Receiver Coffee is unique in the sense that it is not a typical white cube gallery space – it is a public space that is already rich in character and interaction. We encourage applicants to familiarize themselves with the venue before applying.
Applicants should be aware that there is an element of vulnerability for the work, as it is a high-traffic space where food and beverages are consumed. Preference will be given to two-dimensional works that are suitable in these conditions. The artist assumes full responsibility for the work, including any damage or loss. Exhibitions will run for approximately 6-8 weeks.
Submissions will be reviewed by a jury made up of professional artists and community members. TTIS is committed to equal opportunities and we encourage applicants who identify as women, Indigenous, members of visible minorities, LGBTQ2SIA+, and persons with disabilities to apply.
Artist fees that meet CARFAC guidelines will be paid to the selected artists.
Submissions are due January 16, 2022 at midnight.

*Text files are to be sent as a single PDF file
- CV (maximum three pages)
- Artist statement (maximum 250 words)
- An exhibition proposal that includes (maximum two pages):
- A description of the project to be exhibited
