Artists’ Network Gallery is celebrating two years at our Queen Street East Riverside location, a Streetcar Developments property. The TTC Red Rocket Streetcar debuted in 1938 and has become a Toronto icon, a frequent artist’s model, and stops outside our Gallery doors.

We are calling on artists to submit their original art of the beloved Red Rocket Streetcar. Interpretation, realism and non-representational “inspired by”, and medium are up to you. Submissions are welcome from both Artists’ Network members and non-members.

All Artists’ Network Gallery shows are juried; we will notify you by June 4 with details on artwork delivery.

All art must be suitable for installation:

  • Completely dry, set, cured, fixed, or protected.
  • Label on the back with title, artist, price, size, medium, year.
  • Secure hanging attachments including d-rings, mounting holes, or track.

The upload process can be slow, it is very important you wait for the spinning arrows below the big Submit button and you receive the pop-up message box informing you of a successful submission. Leaving this page before the pop-up message will delete all data and suspend the upload, meaning we will not receive your submission.

Safari users: we have experienced issue that the spinning arrow upload indicator never ends and you do not receive the pop-up message confirming your submission. The solution is to use other web browser or mobile phone.

5. Pay the submission fee

This fee is not refunded, it underwrites our overhead to review each submission. Buy Now button takes you to PayPal where you can pay via your account or credit card. Please remember to do this after clicking Submit as you can not save the form-field data.
