Are you casting a shadow?

All artists are invited to submit a Call for Entry form to enter the 2012 Fall Art Show and Sale. Don’t delay! The deadline is Friday September 7.

The theme is “Casting Shadows“, and is open to literal or figurative interpretation. Having a specific theme each year encourages new works, allows for more creativity and co-ordination with other elements in the show, and  increases audience appeal. Every effort is made to choose a theme which is accessible to various artistic media and styles.

The Oliver Community Arts Council believes that anyone who “casts a shadow” is an artist! Show us your hidden talents! Don’t keep them in the shadows.  Choose your favourite category and enter to win, sell, or simply impress your friends. You deserve your artistic moment in the spotlight!

New works will be accepted in seven categories:  Watercolour Paintings, Oil Paintings, Acrylic Paintings, Fibre Arts,  Three Dimensional, Photography, Other Media (mixed media, encaustic, pen and ink, etc), and Emergin Artists (under 18 years).

Shhh! Artists busy at work… How about YOU?

We know there are many artists out there already working on their submissions to the Fall Art Show and Sale. How about YOU? There’s still time to send in your entry form! The deadline for the form is September 9, 2011.

The theme is “Outside the Box”, and can be interpreted literally or figuratively. There may be an actual box somewhere in your creation, or perhaps the “box” is more of a metaphorical construct. Maybe what you create reflects how you are thinking outside the normal parameters, or outside your usual medium or perspective. The theme is meant to celebrate what is quirky, inventive, freed from constraint, or just plain different! What’s outside YOUR box? 

For an entry form, visit Lauralee’s Treasure Cellar on Main Street or the Oliver Visitor Centre. Email OliverCAC to ask for a copy emailed to you or simply download the form here by clicking on the link. 2011 FASS Entry Form Print out on one sheet of 8x 11 using both sides of the page, and fold in half.

The Fall Art Show and Sale is the arts council’s largest event of the year, visited by hundreds of locals and tourists. Don’t miss this opportunity to showcase your artwork!
