Lakehead Submission Guidelines
Thank you for considering a submission. Applications are being accepted. Direct email submissions to the curator are not accepted. Please use this submission form only. Submissions are welcomed from Lakehead faculty, staff, students, alumni, affiliates and local artists. There is no specific theme although pieces may be grouped accordingly across the three Lakehead gallery sites.
All works must be suitably framed if applicable. There is no restriction on size, however, please see gallery spaces on this site and contact the curator if you have questions on the suitability of your art. After the jurors select the works, the curator will provide a date for delivery for the works at the Thunder Bay Campus. Depending on jury selections, artwork may be exhibited for one or two semesters. Delivery, pick-up, and all framing costs are the responsibility of the artist. Please see further details in the submission information below.
Once you submit the information, including your biography and abstract (artist statement about the work), and the submission is reviewed, you will be asked to email a high resolution image of the 1-3 works you wish to submit. Jpg images must be a minimum of 300 dpi and must include the frame of the piece in a forward-facing photo of the artwork (If submitting photos, you can frame the pieces after the jury process). Thank you again.
