Fraser Valley artists invited to submit works

Biennale takes place in Abbotsford, Chilliwack and Mission

The Reach Gallery Museum Abbotsford is calling for visual artists living in the Fraser Valley to submit expressions of interest for the fourth Fraser Valley Biennale.

The biennale, which began in 2011, is a partnership with arts councils in the Fraser Valley, showcasing exceptional works of art produced by regional artists over the past two years.

The event will be hosted at multiple venues throughout 2017, beginning at the Kariton Gallery in Abbotsford in January and then travelling to the Chilliwack Arts Council and the Mission Arts Council before concluding at The Reach Gallery Museum Abbotsford next fall.

For the first time, the biennale will be adjudicated and coordinated by a guest curator, Beth Carruthers.

Carruthers is a curator, consultant, researcher and theorist who has worked in the arts in B.C. for over two decades and who has curated significant international projects.

Artists living in the Fraser Valley from Hope to Langley are encouraged to submit up to three works of art in any medium for consideration.

Works must have been created since 2015 and should represent excellence in their practice. The deadline for submissions is Nov. 15.

More information and applications are available online at thereach.ca or by contacting participating arts councils.
