Exhibition Submissions Workshop

Wednesday, February 15 from 7:00 to 9:00pm

FREE for members / $5 for non-members

Please register in advance by emailing

This workshop will provide an overview of submitting applications to exhibit at galleries, festivals and artist-run centres, considering common pitfalls and best practices. Led by Modern Fuel's Programming Committee (Stéfy McKnight,Teresa Carlesimo and Michael DiRisio), we will discuss standard submission package formatting and review applications that were ranked highly, followed by a more hands-on walk through of the process. 

This workshop will focus in particular on the image component of submissions, reviewing how to resize and format photo documentation of works, methods for correcting white balance and light levels, as well as how to compress video for submission. Participants are invited to bring their artist statement and digital portfolio (on a laptop or mobile device), as well as a previous exhibition submission package, to receive feedback from instructors and other partipants (though this is not required). 

This workshop is free for members of Modern Fuel. Membership is an easy way to support our non-profit arts organization, which continues to provide exhibition, event and professional development opportunities for artists, for 40 years now!
