Deadline for Submissions: January 22, 2023

this town is small is seeking proposals for a new exhibition series at the Charlottetown Library Learning Centre (CLLC). Professional artists that are currently residing in PEI are eligible to apply. Artists can apply as individuals as well as part of an artist collective.

this town is small, in partnership with the Charlottetown Library Learning Centre will present four solo exhibitions per year in the new TD Art Corridor. 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. Proposed artworks should be ready to hang, and both two and three dimensional work will be considered. If works are three dimensional, please clearly indicate your plan for mounting the works in your proposal. Artworks must be ready to hang from a clip rail system (see images and details on the application form linked below).

The exhibition space is the upper portion of a 33 foot long wall and is positioned above a series of bookcases. We recommend applicants refer to the provided images of the space on the application form and visit in person. Preference will be given to bodies of work that consider how to best make use of the wall space. 

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 Indigenous, members of visible minorities, LGBTQ2SIA+, and persons with disabilities to apply and self identify in their application.

Solo exhibitions will run for approximately three (3) months and artists/collectives will be paid an artist fee of $1,000 and provided support for installation, promotions, and more. 

Selected exhibitions will take place beginning in April 2023.
