Less than a month to get in on the walk

Art Walk 2013 has a deadline of March 28 for entries

Art Walk is a popular annual event

Visual Artists are alerted that they have until the end of this month to register for this year’s Castlegar Art Walk.

Plans are under way for Castlegar’s 2013 summer Art Walk. An ongoing venture, the Art Walk has been a welcome opportunity for artists to show their work to the community and its visitors in places of local business.

The Castlegar Arts Council is inviting you to be a part of Art Walk 2013. Experienced and emerging artists are encouraged to participate as individuals or small groups. As the event is limited to about 30 venues, entries may be reviewed for suitability. Displayed work should be new to Castlegar’s Art Walk, and artisans producing crafted items made from design plans or kits will not be included.

The entry fee is $25.00 ($5.00 non-refundable) to be submitted with the enclosed form and two photos of your work, suitable for publicity purposes. The venue (store or office) will accept payment for sales, and keep a 20 per cent commission. Artists receive 80 per cent of the sales.

Art Walk 2013 will run from June 24 to September 15. An opening mini-show and reception with entertainment is planned for June 25.

The Arts Council will coordinate artists and venues, as well as promote the event. A repeat production of the very effective brochure that was produced last year is currently in preparation.

The artists are responsible to choose and install their work, in cooperation with the venue.

Castlegar businesses and residents, as well as returning tourists will look forward to seeing what our artists have created, and the Castlegar Arts Council is happy to coordinate this showcase of our community’s artistic talent.

Please carefully read the enclosed guidelines and deliver your application by Thursday, March 28. Forms are available from the Castlegar Chamber of Commerce and Information Centre, or on request from castlegararts@gmail.com .

Thank you for your interest and participation If we can answer any of your questions, please call Sandra Donohue at 250-365-7084, Jacquie Hamilton at 250-365-8026 or email castlegararts@gmail.com.
