WHAT WE’RE DOING: Celebrate all things paper with us! This show has two streams:

STREAM 1 — ART DROP INS (WORKS SOLD BY FORUM): On April 28th and 30th, join us at 120 Eugenie Street for a collaborative art event to create paper works! Forum will have a large selection of papers, collage materials, and artist materials (acrylics, watercolours, pastels, etc.) to create works for the show. Please bring any material donations you could contribute (glue, matte gel, paint, magazines, glitter, paper, tape, etc.).

It is free to create work during the drop in, artists are volunteering their time and skill by participating in these art drop ins. Artwork done by all artists during the drop in will be donated to the Forum Art Centre to sell at the Small Papers Show, with 100% of the proceeds for every paper art sold to go towards future Forum Art Centre Programming and Art Events.

If you would like to participate in the Art Drop In reserve your spot on April 28th or 30th by emailing Danielle:

STREAM 2 — WORKS SOLD BY ARTIST: Bring all your small paper works to sell at the Small Papers Show. For the event, The Forum Art Centre will take a 25% commission on any works sold during the show. Please fill out the form below if you are dropping off artwork.

All works must have price and artist’s name affixed directly to the packaging of the art. There is no limit to amounts, bring as many works as you wish.

ALL MEDIUMS ACCEPTED: You may submit all types of creative, small paper works such as cards, watercolours, prints, bookmarks, paper jewellery, recycled art, etc. Anything made out of paper! Please do not submit anything larger than 25x25inches.

VOLUNTEERING: There is a signup sheet at the front entry of the Forum with plenty of options including before, and during the sale. If you cannot volunteer or cannot attend the drop in, we ask that you donate $10 towards exhibition expenses.

Don’t Forget to bring your promotional materials (bio, artists statement, business cards) to promote your art.
