The Oliver Community Arts Council welcomes submissions from all BC artists for the 31st annual Fall Art Show and Sale, held Saturday October 4 – Sunday October 5 at the Oliver Community Centre. Theme: “Dreams and Visions”. Competition awards winners across nine categories: watercolour, oil, acrylic, fibre art, 3-dimensional, photography, other media, and two categories for junior artists (by age group). Overall award for “Best Interpretation of the Theme”.
APPLICATION deadline: Saturday August 31, 4 pm.
NOTE: This deadline is JUST for your entry form paperwork, NOT your artwork! You still have over a month to create your art!
Artists may submit up to 2 pieces of artwork. If you choose to sell your artwork during the show, all sales will be charged 30% commission.
Art delivery, competition, public voting, reception, and awards ceremony on Saturday October 4. Continuing show and sales on Sunday October 5 with Oliver’s Festival of the Grape admission ticket. Admission into the Community Centre for the Art Show on both days is by donation in return for a chance on a prize draw.
A change to this year’s guidelines makes it possible for artists either to sell or only to display their entries. There are a few more changes to note in this year’s show.
Entry form, fee structure and submission guidelines available here:
or look under “Forms” on the black ribbon at the top of the page. Membership forms are there as well. You can also request forms from olivercac @ gmail.com.
If you are an artist who finds inspiration in unexpected places and likes to represent the world creatively as you see it, then we want to see it, too. It’s time to awaken your imagination and share your talent with the world by revealing your “Dreams and Visions” in the Oliver Fall Art Show and Sale.
