Deer Lake Gallery has a call out for artists to take part in Luminescence V, the fifth edition of its popular show marking the spring equinox. The 2020 edition is set to run from a to-be-determined date in March to April 25. (The opening date is currently unknown due to pending renovations at the gallery; the exhibition opening will also mark the opening of the gallery’s improved premises.)

Submitted works can be two- or three-dimensional and suitable for either indoor or outdoor installation – the primary requirement is that the work involves light.

The fifth edition of the show will feature up to 30 individual and group installations, celebrating the gallery’s expanded exhibition space and the beginning of the Burnaby Arts Council’s 50th anniversary year of celebration.

Past shows have attracted attention for such works as a mirrored infinity room in the first season and a fire-breathing dragon in 2019; work runs the gamut from paintings and sculpture to larger-than-life installations in the gallery yard.

The deadline for submissions for this year was originally announced for November, but it’s been extended until Monday, Jan. 6 at midnight. For full details and an application form, see
