Everything’s calming down for the winter up here. We’ve secured our little building in the heart of Algonquin, safe and warm for the season, and last year’s pieces have been shipped off to new homes. It’s a wistful feeling, closing everything down. But it’s also an optimistic one. We’re reflecting on the last year and looking forward to the next one, our new show, and all the things we’re passionate about accomplishing as we move forward.
With these changes and transitions in mind, as well as our new theme of Metamorphosis, we’ve got an announcement we’d like to make. In partnership with Algonquin Provincial Park, we’re sponsoring a spring residency. We’re calling it Perennial Threshold, and we’re looking for artists that want to address themes of continual transitions, be they seasonal, ecological, cultural, environmental, or anything else that might inspire them.
This residency includes lodging at Algonquin’s Clarke Lake Lodge from March 11th to 21st, the chance to spend unbroken time focusing on artistic practice in the park, and arts-outreach opportunities at the Visitor Centre. You can find all of the details and how to apply in the call for submissions: Perennial Threshold Call for Submissions.
We’ll be accepting applications until February 1st. Send your submissions or inquiries to email@example.com.
We can’t wait to hear your thoughts!
