The Village Theater at Cherry Hill is now accepting proposals for solo or group exhibitions for its 2021 exhibition season in the Gallery@VT. Both local and regional artists are encouraged to apply and all mediums will be considered.  The deadline for submissions is April 8, 2020.

Canton’s Village Theater, one of the premiere performance art centers located in Southeast Michigan, easily showcases established, as well as, emerging artists who have been recognized for their exceptional talent.  On average, 5,000 patrons visit this dynamic theater each month. 

To apply for a solo or group exhibition at the Gallery@VT, artists must submit an entry package, which can be obtained online. Additional required information includes:  an artist’s statement; exhibition proposal, if proposed exhibit contains a concept or theme; list of representative images submitted; documented artwork including the artist’s name, title, medium, dimensions and date of the work; current resume/biography list of art-related background and art education, artist’s availability; and a USB flash drive or CD of high-quality JPG digital images. 

Artists’ submissions may be sent via email to anne.jahn@canton-mi.org or delivered directly to The Village Theater at Cherry Hill.  Emailed images should be no larger than 3 MB each. Artists who have presented a solo exhibition at the Gallery@VT within the last five years are ineligible; however, artists who have participated in a collaborative show featuring three or more artists in that timeframe are eligible to apply. The Village Theater at Cherry Hill’s exhibition committee, comprised of local artists, arts professionals and/or art educators, will jury and determine the final 2021 exhibition lineup. 

The Village Theater’s gallery is free and open to the public Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., during public performances, and by appointment by calling 734/394-5300. 

The Village Theater at Cherry Hill, located at 50400 Cherry Hill Road, Canton, MI, 49187, offers the magic of live theatre, soul-stirring music, the thrill of the dance, and the enjoyment of fine art exhibitions and events, in addition to providing a home for several cultural organizations and community groups in Canton, MI.  For more information on the current or 2021 exhibition seasons, visit www.cantonvillagetheater.org or call 734/394-5300.
