Artist call: Visual Fringe

Visual Fringe at the Fringe Club
*New This Year*

WHERE: The Fringe Club – 581 Bloor St. West, running south from Bloor Street along Honest Ed Alley.

This year, the Toronto Fringe has expanded its programming, and we want YOU to be a part of it!

The Visual Fringe is an un-curated collection of mini-galleries, a first-come/ first-served opportunity for artists, sculptors, painters, installation artists, graffiti artists, graphic artists—any visual artists—to show their work to the thousands of people who go through the Fringe Club. Participants in the Visual Fringe will be given a 10’x10’tent in which to show their work, a prime location just off Bloor at Bathurst, workshops on producing and publicizing their exhibitions, and use of the Fringe box office to sell their work. As with all Toronto Fringe Festival shows, the artists keep 100% of their sales.

This visual arts festival is ideal for dynamic, experimental, or provocative artists. The Fringe Festival will not interfere in the creative process or product of any artist, so feel free to take risks. Just remember that you can’t violate any hate laws. Visual artists are encouraged to apply as a collective, to create artwork on the spot, and to do whatever they want to make the experience exciting for the crowds of people passing by.

Artists or collectives must pay a $50 (+HST) participation fee, but receive 100% of the sales of their work. Artists are required to provide their own materials. The Fringe Festival is not responsible for lost or stolen art work or materials, but will provide overnight storage.

WHEN: The Visual Fringe is open from 6:30pm to 9:30pm every night from July 6th to July 17th.

WHO: Visual Artists

HOW: Applications for the Visual Fringe are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis.

(Thanks to the TCA!)
