Fall Art Show & Sale theme announced

FASS 2016 Call for Entires

The Fall Art Show and Sale (FASS) will be “Going Wild” on October 1st and 2nd. Visual artists of all ages are encouraged to enter with their interpretation of this theme. “Going Wild” could inspire an abstract expression of wild emotions: passion, anger, lust or joyful abandon. The theme could reflect an artist’s choice of unusual media, going “wild and crazy” with new fibres, new digital techniques, new designs, new surfaces and applications. The theme could refer to the artist’s choice of subject matter: psychological turmoil, political ideology, liberation, anarchy. “Going Wild” might also inspire a nature lover to submit a work featuring flora or fauna, such as an overgrown garden, an exotic animal, or a wilderness adventure.

Categories include photography, fibre arts, oils, acrylics, watercolours, three-dimensional, and other media (encaustic, pen and ink, mixed media, etc), Two categories for youth, emerging artists and budding artists, invite entries in any visual medium. Awards are given in each category, as well as an overall “Best Interpretation of the Theme” (Best in Show).

Entry forms must be received by Friday September 9, 2016. Artwork need not be completed by that date. Artwork is delivered to the venue on the,morning of the show, Saturday October 1. This gives artists three extra weeks to complete their piece. More details available in the terms and guidelines below.
