Call for Submissions: Consumerism

Deadline for Submissions: June 30, 2024, 11:59pm MT

The Alberta Society of Artists invites Alberta artists (18 years of age or older) to submit to the exhibition Consumerism: Social Definition.

“The process of acquiring goods and services beyond the basic need defines consumerism, something which many people pride themselves on as a way of cultivating a self-identity and social empowerment.

Consumerism is also widely criticized for having an impact on the environment. Critics believe Climate Change is due to an overexploitation of natural resources and large production of waste from disposable goods.

This exhibition aims to explore the notion that Consumerism is two-pronged: a possible root to many societal ills or a promotion of consumers freedom of choice.”

The artist’s statement will be crucial to the understanding of the artwork’s intent in this exhibition call.

Exhibition location is the Western GM Gallery, Drumheller, Alberta: October 2024. There may be other venues.

For more information, visit email, or call the Gallery at 403.265.0012.

The Alberta Society of Artists is the oldest society of juried professional artists in the province, providing art education and exhibitions in public venues since 1931. The Society’s goal is to increase public awareness and appreciation of the visual arts in Alberta.
