Island Art & Artisan Show & Sale
June 21 to July 3, 2021
In this popular exhibit, Island artists along with seasonal and visiting artists, come together to display their creative talents. Some examples from our 2020 online show are shown above. Painting, photography, fibre arts, sculpture, pottery, woodcarving and imaginative mixed-media pieces are all displayed together, and it’s all for sale at very reasonable prices.
This show is an important fund raiser for the Gallery. 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 encouraged to participate.
Because of the ongoing Covid situation, we recognize that artists who live in the US, or other areas outside of the Province of New Brunswick, will find it difficult, or impossible, to deliver their work either to the Gallery, or to By The Sea, our drop site at 122 Water Street, St. Andrews, NB. Consequently, to reduce the shipping costs for this show, we will, in addition to framed artwork, also accept unframed work in mats with backing , and unframed canvas pieces on stretcher bars.
You may submit up to four pieces, the Entry Fee is $10 per submission, and the Gallery will charge a 25% commission on all sales. Please attach a label with your name, medium and title of the piece to the back of your artwork.
An image of your artwork may be used for publicity purposes to promote the Island Art Show. The Gallery respects community standards and reserves the right not to display 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.
Gallery visitors will vote for their favourite pieces, and People’s Choice Awards of $200, $150 and $100 will be given for the three most popular works in the show.
As a service to our contributing artists, we will be creating a virtual gallery for the Island Show that will remain online until December 31, 2021.
