2019 APPLICATION DEADLINE

Art House Carcross invites Yukon Artists to share their artistic vision with the hundreds of daily visitors who pass through Carcross. We are excited to continue to showcase the diversity of Yukon visual art, which ranges from traditional to contemporary and uses a multitude of mediums, such as carving, painting, textiles and more.

Yukon artists who are “market-ready”[1] are encouraged to submit their work. Artists that consider themselves “near-market ready” are also welcome to apply.  Successful artists will have artwork selected to be on display at Art House Carcross in one of two exhibitions. The 2019 exhibition season will run from the end of May to September. 

Application Deadline:  Applications must be submitted by end of day April 15, 2019. All artists that are chosen will be informed as to which show they are in and will therefore have time to have a body of work ready for due dates in May and July.

To apply please fill out this form

Art House Carcross was founded in partnership with the Yukon Arts Centre, Southern Lakes Artists Collective, Carcross/Tagish First Nation, and Carcross/Tagish Management Corp., to create a visual art showcase to promote Yukon art in the Carcross Commons. Supported by Yukon Government, Art House Carcross and its staff provide visitors with the information necessary to connect to galleries throughout the Yukon or to purchase work directly from the artists.  Art House Carcross promotes artists online via www.arthousecarcross.com and social media, as well as through printed artist cards.

[1] Market Ready Artist: Do you have an artist website (or active artist facebook page)? Do you have the ability to conduct a financial transaction for the sale of your art? Are your works represented in galleries either for sale or in permanent collections? Have you been in multiple exhibitions? Do you have an active artistic practice?
