Struts Gallery invites New Brunswick-based artists to submit Poster proposals

We invite New Brunswick-based artists to propose artworks to be considered for Struts Gallery’s artists’ poster series. Each poster in the series is autonomous and is not required to adhere to a specific theme. Read more about the series below.

The posters are full colour, single-sided, printed on 18 x 24” 80lb gloss cover stock, produced in an edition of five-hundred. Artists will receive fifty copies of the poster and an artist fee of $450.00. The posters are designed to be posted and will not be available for sale (surplus copies may be used as an incentive for student memberships in the future).

The submissions will be adjudicated by a jury made up of staff, board members and the wider Struts membership.

Struts remains committed to inclusive and diverse programming. We encourage submissions from Indigenous artists, artists of colour, artists with disabilities, and LGBTQ+ artists.

Proposals must include:

  • An image or mock-up of your proposed poster

  • A single paragraph biography

  • A brief written description of the work

  • A current CV and link to your artist website if available

  • Please include your contact information on your CV

Proposal Image Format:

  • Files should be scaled for an 18″ x 24″ format, landscape or portrait

  • .JPG or .TIFFs, no larger than 2 MB

Poster Format:

  • If selected, the image must be provided at 18″ x 24″, at 300 dpi

How to submit:

Artists can submit materials to info@strutsgallery.ca with the subject heading POSTER PROJECT.

Last Fall, we launched a series of four posters by Michael Dumontier & Neil FarberMelanie ColosimoSéamus Gallagherand Lenka Clayton. Not overtly conceived of as a response to COVID-19, the works ended up addressing issues of fear, anxiety, safety and death. This Spring, the second four posters will be released, including works by Raymond Boisjoly and Céline Huyghebaer plus two more selected from this open call.
