The Art Committee of York Hospital is soliciting proposals for artwork to be displayed in the Café at York Hospital and featured virtually online in 2023.

Each exhibition will be on view for three months beginning in January 2023. Interested artists should submit, via email, a biography/artist’s statement of no more than 500 words and a digital portfolio – consisting of 4-6 pieces (jpegs, each approximately 1MB in size) or a link to the artist’s website or online gallery – for jury consideration. Please email all entry materials to York Hospital Community Relations, [email protected]. Submissions must be received by Friday, October 14, 2022, for consideration.

The Art Committee will review submissions in late October and notify the artists of their decision in early November. The Art Committee strives to select inspirational, positive imagery in various two-dimensional media (oils, watercolor, photography, silkscreen prints, etc.) and styles (i.e. still life, land- or seascapes, portraits, realistic or abstract art).

The four exhibiting artists will be expected to provide, at least one week prior to their exhibition start date, digital images of all artwork to be displayed (jpegs of at least 5 x 7 inches at 72 dpi) and a corresponding price list. A portion of the proceeds from each art sale will be donated to the York Hospital Caring for All fund. After an artist’s artwork has been selected to be exhibited at York Hospital, it is recommended that they wait three years before applying again to give other local artists the same opportunity.
