Welcome to 100 Braid St Studios
CALL TO ARTISTS
We are happy to announce New Westminster’s
International Artist Day Festival Anonymous Art Show at 100 Braid St Arts Studios & Gallery in New Westminster.
CALL TO ARTISTS
International Artist Day, launched in 2004, is now celebrated all around the world throughout North America, Europe and parts of Asia. Now an IAD signature event and art show is coming to the city of New Westminster.
Artists are invited to submit 12”x12”x1 ½” gallery wrapped canvases; subject matter is artists’ choice, ready to hang, and signed on the back only. The anonymous nature of the show will ensure that all the art will be treated equally; however we expect that the excitement of the unknown will add a special anticipation and excitement to the event.
There will be a Gala opening on Wednesday, the 25th of October 7:00-10:00pm by ticket only. The ticket price is $200.00 per couple or $150.00 for a single, with $100.00 going as an art coupon for patrons to purchase a piece of art of their choice. Due to capacity restrictions ticket holders only will be admitted.
A public show opening will be held on the evening of Friday, October 27 and public viewing will be held on Saturday, October 28 and Sunday October 29 from 10am-6:00pm
Entry fee is $25.00 for up to 3 pieces. All the art will be for sale and every piece will be priced at $150.00 regardless of the artist and $100.00 per painting will be paid back to the artist when sold. Biographies of some of the participating artists will be used for event and publicity purposes.
A portion of proceeds will benefit “Camp Kerry” which specializes in providing bereavement programs and supports to individuals and families impacted by grief, loss, and terminal illness.
The show will be gently juried by a committee of artists and art professionals but our goal is to have 100 artists involved. The IAD selection committee at 100 Braid St reserves the right to refuse any work that we consider offensive to the public. Art work must meet the following requirements:
We only accept unframed, 12” x 12” x 1 ½”, back stapled canvas
Canvases that are signed on the front or sides will not be accepted
Name and title of work must be written on back.
Canvases must be marked with an arrow on the back to indicate the top of the piece
Paintings must be submitted completely dry
Submissions are limited to 3 in number
Diptychs and triptychs are acceptable but will not be shown together
Please submit your interest by sending an email to:
Attach 3 jpeg photos of your work
A link to your website
Links and user id’s of your social media feeds (IG, Twitter, FB, Pinterest)
Once you have received confirmation that your work has been accepted a $25.00 submission fee may be paid by credit card, e-transfer or cheque.
Submissions accepted until September 29, 2017 but please submit early as we have already had a great deal of interest in this event.
Instructions on art delivery, hanging requirements, etc will be supplied at a later date to all participating artists.
