Submission to Exhibit

“Submission to Exhibit”  at The Lawrence House Centre for The Arts

The Lawrence House Centre for the Arts (LHCA) invites submissions to exhibit in the Turret Room (Gallery) to its members. Exhibition opportunities of one month in duration are available.  The LHCA welcomes proposals from artists of all disciplines and career levels. The call is open to all LHCA members who reside or work in Lambton County and who have not had a solo show at the gallery in the past 3 years. Consideration is extended to both solo or two-person proposals.

If you would like to become a member, Memberships can be obtained at the LHCA at 127 Christina Street S, Sarnia Ontario. To view the various Memberships available, click the link. You must have a Bronze Membership or higher to have a Solo Show and Applicants Art will be juried in by the Art Committee.  The work must be completed within the past 2 years with the exception of a Retrospective Exhibition.

The LHCA Gallery seeks to foster Visual Arts in our community through its support of local artists. Our aim is to  encourage the creation and appreciation of Visual Arts in Sarnia-Lambton and to facilitate professional growth for emerging and established artists through exhibition opportunities.  We are most interested in works/projects that are current, skillful and impactful. The main criterion for selections is to fulfill our mandate.
