The Amelia Douglas Gallery

The Amelia Douglas Gallery at 鶹ýAV is calling for submissions by Indigenous artists and makers for a group exhibit planned for September–October 2024. All artistic media are welcome!  Paintings, carvings, beadwork, photography, mixed media, textiles, print, sculpture (no video installations, sorry!) 

This presentation is planned to coincide with the annual New West Culture Crawl. No Gallery Commission—100% of sales go directly to artists. 

To be considered for the show, please submit photos of up to three works for consideration. Tell us a little about yourself and your work. Just a few sentences will do. 

Please send your submissions directly by email to no later than July 1st, 2024. Decisions will be made by the end of June. While we appreciate all submissions, only successful candidates will be contacted.

The Long Road Home


Opening Reception:

Thursday, May 9, 2024 

4:30 - 6:00 PM

Please join us for a reception celebrating the opening of Annette Nieukerk's exhibit “The Long Road Home.” From the Artist Statement:

"The multi-media paintings of Annette Nieukerk question the notions of beauty and identity within the framework of our culture.  As a female figurative artist now in her seventies, the focus of her work is the aging body, challenging and breaking down stereotypes that equate beauty solely with youth and that confront a dominant negative perception towards aging. 

Her latest series ‘the long road home’ evokes the sensuality and desire that can exist at advancing years, the intensity of emotion and intimacy pulling two people together, and the deep yearning for connection buried in the human psyche"

Call to Artists: Arts in the Afternoon

The performance series offers free weekly concerts during the fall and winter semesters for our students, staff and community members. The series features professional musicians based in Metro Vancouver and students from the 鶹ýAV Music Department. Each concert includes a performance of up to 40 minutes and a 15-minute talkback.  

The intention of this concert series is to provide a platform for engaging and innovative artists to perform to new audiences. We also want our students to learn about the artistic process and the lived experience of professional artists through storytelling and/or a Q&A. Submissions that demonstrate skill and expertise in this area will be prioritized.  

鶹ýAV is committed to fostering an equitable, accessible, diverse and inclusive campus where all people feel a sense of belonging. We strongly encourage applications from people who identify as a member of an underrepresented or marginalized community including IBPOC, and 2SLGBTQIA+. We invite applicants to self-identify in their application if they feel comfortable doing so, as priority will be given to these individuals or groups.  

鶹ýAV prioritizes paying artists a fair fee for their work. In the spirit of transparency, we would like to share that our base fee is $250 per performer.   

All performances take place on Wednesday afternoons Fall (September-November 2024) and Winter (January-April 2025)

For additional information regarding the application process and the performance series, please contact Jennifer Racco, Arts Events Officer  aٲ𱹱ԳٲdzܲDZ𲵱.
