ACC Calls for Entry 

Throughout the year, the Alberta Craft Council posts exhibition calls here. If you would like to discuss our calls please contact the exhibition team (see below for contact details). We can chat about your exhibition ideas or any other questions you may have.

Call for Entry: Beyond the Bow
Deadline for Entry: January 24, 2018

Exhibition Dates: March 1 – April 10, 2018
Three Sisters Gallery, Elevation Place, Canmore


Over the past 2 years we have been fortunate to be a part of a community partnership with the Town of Canmore and the Three Sisters Gallery.  Along the Bow I & II focused on work by ACC Professional Members whose work explored the Bow Valley and it has been a great success with fascinating depictions of the valley. 

In our third year, we are expanding the scope of the exhibition. Beyond the Bow will focus on the Alberta landscape from the rugged beauty of the mountains to where the wheat fields meet the open sky.   Alberta and its artists are as diverse as its landscapes.  

The work submitted must be suitable for hanging on a cable system or fit into a shadow box that can be hung.  The ACC can loan silver framed shadow box(es) for display purposes that measure 12”x15”x2.75” deep and are suitable for displaying lightweight pieces.

Submission Requirements:
- 3-10 high quality images of work to be displayed (please include an image of the hanging system for each piece)
- Image list that includes title, year created, media, techniques used, and value for each piece submitted
- Artist biography
- Must be a current ACC member
