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).
