September 10th – 24th, 2023
In this popular exhibit, Island artists, along with seasonal and visiting artists, come together to display their creative talents. Painting, photography, fibre arts, sculpture, woodcarving and imaginative mixed-media pieces are all displayed together in one memorable show, and it’s all for sale at very reasonable prices.
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.
The work must be ready to hang (preferably with a wire, not frame clips), and a label with the name of the artist, medium, title and price of the piece must be attached to the back of the artwork.
Artists may submit up to four pieces, but depending on space limitations, we may not be able to hang all the work, and submissions should be ranked in priority order. The Gallery will charge a 25% commission on all sales. An image of the artwork may be used 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 manmade 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 $100, $150 and $200 will be given for the three most popular works in the show.
