CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS: Fat In Public an Art Show Presented by Fat Girl Food Squad


Fat Girl Food Squad is currently accepting submissions for our first gallery show, ‘FAT IN PUBLIC’.   Running from January 30, 2014 until February 5, 2014 at 2186 Dundas West Gallery.

Fat In Public is an art show that dares everyone to embrace just that: being fat in public.

Through this, Fat Girl Food Squad‘s first gallery showing, we intend to de-stigmatize the (fat) body and give an outlet for art featuring imperfect and sybaritical characters in equal measure. We want art and its creators to be seen and heard in all their ample glory.

All artwork must be completed, ready to hang (including professional backings and hanging equipment) and in good condition. It must have your name, title and medium printed clearly on the back and an arrow to indicate which direction is up (unless, of course, it is ridiculously obvious).  The artist must sign all artworks.  All artworks will have the option to be for sale with all sales going directly to the artist.

Submitting work for consideration to FAT IN PUBLIC is easy!
Email us at with samples of your work (5 high res JPG files), along with a short bio and a description of the work you will be presenting, including the title and medium.  Please title all emails: FAT IN PUBLIC.

Please include the following with your submission:

    1. Your Name (and company name if you have one)
    2. Contact information (Phone, Cell, Email)
    3. Website (if you have one)

Submission Deadline:
Wednesday January 15, 2014

Artist Public Announcement:
Friday January 17, 2014

Submission Fee:
$50.00 (for first submission)
+ $5.00 (for each additional work)

Submission Fees are only paid if your work is selected to be part of the show. 100% of profits from sale of piece will be given to the artist.

We look forward to getting FAT IN PUBLIC with you!
