Our normal annual shows at the Misericordia Hospital and Allen Gray Continuing Care Centre have been cancelled due to the coronavirus. At this time there is a Capital 44 Show on until Sept 25 with take down at 7pm.
Exhibition committee needs your advice...
We need your input and we want you to be honest, even brutally honest, to express what you like about SWCA Exhibitions shows, the venues, and the process. On the flip side what could or should be done differently? What should not be done at all? We also need new ideas.
As SWCA Exhibitions Committee Chair, I would like the same perusal. I have a thick skin and will pay careful attention. This is all for growth. After 10 years it may be time for new blood. Maybe it’s time to step down, get a new chair, and so on. The so on leaves room for questions I don’t even know to ask.
I truly enjoy my time as SWCA Exhibitions Committee Chair but now we need your input to help bring more creativity to this committee and help bring forth more exciting adventures for others.
Your thoughts can be emailed to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks, Sue Scott (Exhibitions Committee Chair)
Upcoming Exhibition Idea
I have spent the summer going for walks everywhere but it has caught my attention how easy you can find beauty in your own back alley. I would like to suggest that we put together an exhibition: Back Alley Beauty. The venue will be determined later.
Here will be some of the specifics for members to follow if interesting in taking part:
Submission goal - Seeing the beauty in unusual places.
Different Seasons of the year, different mediums to express a common concept.
The common elements of the back alley in western Canada.
- 16" x 20" size
- Media of artist's choice
- No people but animals are fine to portray
- Submissions must be created between August 2020 - September 2021
- Entries must be submitted in jpeg format
Initial submissions at the end of January 2021 to include with application of show to gallery.
Curating of the show, if accepted, will take place about two months before showing.
To help start things - here is a link of reference photos that I have taken over the summer. You are welcome to use these for inspiration.
