It’s that time of year again! We are announcing our open call for submissions for Pre-Shrunk, our much loved annual group show that asks artists to create work on a 4x5” surface. We encourage submissions from both established and emerging artists in their preferred medium.


  • Works must be on a 4x5” surface. Pieces that do not measure 4x5” will not be considered.
  • Artists may submit a maximum of five pieces
  • We ask that you do NOT attach hanging devices (ie wire, hooks, d-rings, etc). The gallery will take care of this for continuity.
  • If you are working on paper it must be mounted on to a sturdy 4x5” surface that can be hung on the wall.
  • Submissions must be new and not previously shown.
  • Please include:
    • Your name
    • Phone number and email address
    • Title and materials used to create the work

To apply for this year’s show please send photographs of completed work in a JPEG format to gallery@argylefa.com.

If your work is selected by the jury you will be notified by phone or email the following week.


  • Pieces that are selected for this year’s exhibition will be priced at $175 each, with standard 50% commission. Please keep this price in mind when creating your pieces.
  • DeSerress and the NSCAD bookstore have kindly ordered pre-made 4x5” canvas and boards to supply artists wanting to participate in this show. Supplies are limited.
