Before submitting, please read our ABOUT and SUBMISSION GUIDELINES sections to see if your work fits within Art Noise’s mandate.
Art Noise is a concept store, featuring retail art materials, audio equipment and curated vinyl, a studio classroom and two galleries which also serve as listening/viewing rooms for Tri-Art Audio and Goosystems. A multifaceted hub for creativity in Kingston’s vibrant downtown community.
Our gallery space has been designed for optimum acoustic showcasing and to that end, part of that construction consists of perforated bamboo panels which line the walls of the room. This aesthetic should be taken into consideration when submitting your work. As the gallery serves multiple functions (Audio, Video and Art exposition) Tri-Art Audio components will remain in place at all times.
Art Noise welcomes submissions from emerging to professional individual artists, curators, and collectives to apply with new or existing exhibition proposals. Exhibitions will be on view for 3-6 weeks, and accessible during regular store hours.
As the primary showroom for Tri-Art products, the Art Noise gallery is dedicated to showing artwork that has been produced all, or in significant part, with Tri-Art manufactured products*. Work that does not include Tri-Art products does not fit the mandate of our gallery and will not be considered for shows. Some exceptions may apply.
Applicants who do not adhere to the above mentioned criteria will be disregarded.
Art Noise will (when scheduling allows) host a curated group show on a yearly basis for Tri-Art users and workshop participants. Notices for submission to these shows will appear on our main gallery page and social media.
Installations that consist of, or include an audio or video component (with or without sound), will also be considered for exhibition.
All submissions must be made online via this platform. Art Noise will not accept mailed submissions.
While we appreciate all those who apply, only successful applicants will be contacted.
*Please note that this does not mean "any materials purchased at Art Noise", but, more specifically, products that have been produced by Tri-Art Mfg. Inc. To make sure your work fits our mandate, visitwww.tri-art.ca. If you require further clarification, contact us firstname.lastname@example.org
