Island Art & Artisan Show & Sale


June 22 to July 11, 2019

This is one of our most popular exhibits of the season. Artists who are Island residents, along with seasonal and visiting artists, come together to display their creative talents. Painting, photography, fibre arts, sculpture, woodcarving and imaginative mixed-media are displayed together in one memorable exhibit, and it’s all for sale. Come and enjoy art created by our friends and neighbours, and take advantage of this opportunity to take home some great art at a very reasonable price.

We welcome back our regular artists who faithfully participate in this event, and we are always looking for new artists of all ages. Children, teens and adults are all welcome to participate.
 

GUIDELINES

Complete the Entry Form and submit it with your work, and the Entry Fee of $10 per submission, payable by cash or cheque, or by credit card at the Gallery. Your work must be ready to hang (preferable with a wire, not frame clips), and a label with your name, medium and title of the piece must be attached to the back of the artwork.

You may submit up to four pieces, but depending on space limitations, we may not be able to hang all your work, and your submissions should be ranked in priority order. The Gallery will charge a 25% commission on all sales. The Gallery may use an image of your artwork for publicity purposes to promote the Island Art Show. The Gallery respects community standards and reserves the right not to hang any work that is deemed inappropriate.

We will take normal precautions to care for all submitted artwork, however, the Gallery will assume no risk for loss or damage to any artwork whether from man made or natural causes. It is the sole responsibility of the artist to insure each work against risk in whatever amount is considered necessary.

Artwork must be delivered to the Gallery no later than 6 p.m. on June 20. Unsold art may be collected at closing (6:00 PM) on July 11, or no later than noon on July 12.

Gallery visitors will vote for their favourite pieces, and Peoples Choice Awards of $200, $150 and $100 will be given for the three most popular works in the show.
