Where is your other black sock? You know you put them in the basket as a pair. You know that they went into the machine together. You moved them from the washing machine to the clothes line. Now that it comes time to put them on, the match is no where to be found.

Where did it go?

This show invites works that explore “What happens to the socks that go missing?” and themes such as Inevitability, The Void, Universal Truths, and Domesticity (ie: Laundry, Chores, and those who do the work).

This wide open concept welcomes your art submissions! Works on display could include framed works, 3D sculpture, writing, interactive fiction, digital works*, performance and more. We welcome your ideas and would love to hear from you.

Schedule on February 13th, 2022: TBC

*Event details will depend on the current Health Orders issued by the province at this time.

Gallery (2D & 3D works) will be accessible throughout the evening:

18:30-20:30: ASL Interpretation available

18:30: Territorial Acknowledgement & Event Essay Reading by show curator, Kay Slater,

Open call for submissions is now open.

Note: The Papercut Arcade defines *artist as a person who practices any of the various creative arts, such as a sculptor, photographer, painter, novelist, poet, or filmmaker. The keyword is practice; therefore, if you make art or produce work with the intent of participating in a The Papercut Arcade challenge or exhibition, you ARE an artist. We even welcome works in progress.

Contact us at with ideas, questions, and your submissions. Works in progress are welcome!

This is not a juried exhibition, but the artworks are screened for harmful (illegal/oppressive/appropriative) content. Show work is included after a discussion with curator, Kay Slater.
