This week I will be sharing some exciting opportunities for local artists that you won’t want to miss.
Bin Top Artist in Residence (BTAR), Dawson Creek Art Gallery
The BTAR program will support a visual artist to develop and create a body of work for a professionally curated exhibition. This program will offer a visual artist a subsistence fee and
artist fee, as well as mentorship and studio space in the Bin Top Studio at the Dawson Creek Art Gallery. The deadline to apply has been extended to February 1st, 2021, with notification of results on February 17th.

At Home Artist Residency (AHAR), Dawson Creek Art Gallery
The AHAR is designed to creatively and financially support three artists through the COVID-19 pandemic. Three artists will be paid a subsistence fee to create a body of work at
home which will be shown in a virtual exhibition. Artists of all levels are encouraged to apply. Like the BTAR program, the deadline has been extended to February 1st, with notification of
results on February 17th. You can find the full AHAR program guidelines at http://dcartgallery.ca/wp-content/uploads/At-Home-Residency-Guidelines.pdf
Other opportunities - Artist Registry, Penticton Art Gallery
The Penticton Art Gallery is compiling a registry of contemporary BC-based artists. This database will be used as an art historical and research tool, as well as a platform for connecting artists.
Travelling Exhibitions Program Region 1 (TREX NW), Art Gallery of Grande Prairie
The Travelling Exhibitions Program Region 1 (TREX NW) welcomes proposals from artists based in Treaty 8, Alberta. The exhibition schedule for TREX NW is programmed roughly
one year in advance. Each exhibition features between 15 – 20 artworks and tours for two years throughout the province of Alberta. All TREX NW artists are paid an artist fee for their
works. Selections will be made in accordance with the submission guidelines, the TREX NW curatorial mandate, and in consultation with the selection committee. The application deadline is March 15th, 2021.
