Calling all artists!

The West End Community Centre is currently looking for artists to exhibit (and sell, if preferred) their artwork at the centre's display gallery. Both 2D and 3D work accepted.

The fee is $29.00 to use the gallery space, for a period of 3 weeks, which can be seen by hundreds of people who visit the community centre. All work must be G-rated, as this is a family-friendly venue.

All proceeds of artworks sold go to the artist; the centre takes no commissions. Artists are responsible for the delivery and installation of their work.

The display gallery is perfect for both solo shows and group shows.
