A Call for Submissions for the New Season

Monday, November 30th, 2015

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.

“Spring Breakup,” David Lidbetter

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
We can’t wait to hear your thoughts!

Algonquin Art Centre’s 2015 Creative Residencies!

Wednesday, July 22nd, 2015

We’re so excited to announce that applications for this season’s Creative Residencies are now open!

These residencies give one writer and one visual artist the chance to spend Sept. 2nd to Sept 6th at one of the Algonquin Wildlife Research Station’s lodges in the midst of the provincial park, surrounded by working naturalists. We’ll take care of the living-expenses and transport to and from Huntsville. We just want to give two creators the chance to benefit from the Algonquin landscape and work on whatever project they feel would benefit from that environment. Apply solo or as a member of a partnership between a writer and visual artist. A quick note: if you apply in partnership, both applicants must complete forms and submit them individually.

You can find more details in the application-forms we’ve attached. Submit soon, and we’ll see you in Algonquin!

Submission Deadline: August 12th, 2015
