To all Visual Artists,
Plans are under way for Castlegar‘s 2017 summer Art Walk. This will be our 21st Art Walk! An ongoing venture for Castlegar, the Art Walk has been a welcome opportunity for artists to show their work to the community and its visitors, in places of local business.
The Castlegar Art Walk Committee, under the auspices of the Castlegar Arts Council, is inviting you to be a part of Art Walk 2017. Experienced and emerging artists are encouraged to participate as individuals or small groups. As we are limiting the event to about 30 venues, entries may be reviewed for suitability. Displayed work should be original and new to Castlegar=s Art Walk, and artisans producing crafted items made from design plans or kits will not be included.
The entry fee is $25.00 ($5.00 non-refundable) to be submitted with the enclosed form and two photos of your work, suitable for publicity purposes. The venue (store or office) will accept payment for sales, and keep a 20% commission. Artists receive 80% of the sales.
Art Walk 2017 will run from June 26th to September 17th. An opening mini-show and reception with entertainment is planned, on June 28th.
The Art Walk Committee will coordinate artists and venues, as well as promote the event. A repeat production of the very effective brochure that was produced last year will be prepared. The artists are responsible to choose and install their work, in cooperation with the venue.
Castlegar businesses and residents, as well as returning tourists, will be looking forward to seeing what our artists have created, and the Castlegar Arts Council is happy to be sponsoring this event, which showcases our community=s artistic talent.
Please carefully read the guidelines below and deliver your application by Thursday, March 23rd.
