“Outside the Box” announced as FASS theme

Attention all artists! The 2011 Fall Art Show & Sale theme has just been announced: “Outside the Box”.

This theme allows for all kinds of interpretation, from literal to fanciful to metaphorical. Mail box, window box,  box car, match box, juke box, pill box, box hedge  … boxy housing developments …. feeling boxed in ….   or even the whimsical interpretation at left.

The Fall Art Show and Sale committee surveyed FASS visitors before deciding upon the theme.  Having no theme, or “Artist’s Choice” , is always a consideration. However, the committee ultimately agreed that a themed event attracts more interest from the public, differentiates one Fall Art Show and Sale from the next, stimulates the creation of new art, eases the judging process, and allows the possibility of themed non-competitive displays and demonstrations.

Fine art, fibre art, photography, mixed media, and plastic arts (three-dimensional) are the main categories to enter. The FASS is held on the first Saturday and Sunday of October, at the Oliver Community Centre, in conjunction with Oliver’s Festival of the Grape.

Watch this site for an official “call for entry” form in the spring of 2011. In the meantime, put your thinking caps on and let those creative sparks fly — unless your thinking cap is made of flammable material!
