Thank you for your interest in exhibiting at the Gladstone as part of Why the @#&! Do You Paint? (October 10 - November 24, 2019 / Opening Reception October 17, 7-10pm). SUBMISSION DEADLINE JUNE 30TH 11pm EST

Hashtag: #WTFDYP @GladstoneHotel

The Gladstone's 5th annual Why the @#&! Do You Paint? (#WTFDYP2019) group painting show introduces 'What Does It All Mean?'. The introduction of the camera aided in changing the focus of painting away from representation and realism towards many different forms of expression. With this the meaning of the work has surpassed the aesthetics. This fifth year anniversary of Why the @#&!; Do You Paint focuses on the meaning or message within the work. In this call we are looking for work, packed with meaning and painted to "perfection".

Participation Fee: $75 + HST (Fee applies only upon acceptance after the jurying process, this fee confirms attendance into show and entitles the artist to 100% of their artwork sales)

***There is no fee to submit a proposal.


Please take a minute to answer the following questions about your proposal for work / expression of interest that you have. Disclaimer: This is indeed a Painting show and will only be accepting works using / working around painting.
