Celebrate the Arts: Art Making by the Salt Spring Community.
Saturday April 20
Submissions open until March 20
No Submission fees.
ArtSpring is very pleased to announce an open call for Celebrate the Arts: Art Making by the Salt Spring Artist Community, a gallery exhibit and theatre performance of participatory artworks created for anyone interested in the process and experience of making art. The exhibition will be held on April 20, 2019 10:00am to 4:00pm in the ArtSpring Gallery, and will feature participatory (any artistic level and age welcome) and demonstrative art projects. In the ArtSpring Theatre from 5:00pm to 6:00pm theatrical Mash-ups celebrate the creativity of cross-genre artists who have come together to create new works of performance art.
We are thrilled to invite Salt Spring artists to submit an application for either (or both) gallery exhibit or theatre performance. Submissions do not need to be of completed art but a proposal of artmaking – of any medium, including painting, drawing, sculpture, computer-generated work, etc. You will be demonstrating or inviting the public to participate in your artmaking process. To participate in the Mash-up, submit your proposal: you and another (or multiple artists) in any genre (knitting, dancing, singing, miming, juggling…).
Please note that the deadline for submissions is March 20, 2019. All applications should be submitted by email to email@example.com.
