Submission Guidelines

  • The Art House Café changes with the seasons! We call for and accept new art and goods every three months, choosing pieces through a juried process, taking into consideration the space available, accordance with other pieces, and formats, colours, or themes when applicable (see what we’re looking for).
  • Any work intended for display on a wall must be dropped off in a ready-to-hang state, otherwise the piece will not be displayed. Note that flat and paper pieces may be photographed unframed for submission but failure to bring the piece in a ready-to-hang state if instructed to do so may result in the rejection of the submitted piece.
  • The Art House Café has the right to refuse any accepted piece upon delivery for reasons including, but not limited to, damage suffered by the item.
  • Applicants whose submissions have been accepted will be contacted a minimum of 10 days before the first day of display (start of the period). Due to the high number of submissions, we unfortunately can only contact applicants whose submissions have been accepted.
  • Approved pieces are to be dropped off at The Art House Café during regular business hours before the Drop-Off Deadline date indicated below.
  • Items requiring pickup must be picked up from The Art House Café within 14 days of the sale period end. If the piece is not picked up before the end of this time, The Art House Café reserves the right to auction off the piece and will give the artist 50% of the proceeds. Exceptions to this time limit must be requested and established in advance, in writing.
