Revolutions and Resolutions
Lunar and Solar Cycles
Art Show of Artists who live in Vancouver Point Grey*
CALL FOR ARTISTS
We enter a new year according to the lunisolar calendar. Feb. 6 starts the 15 day Spring Festival known as Chinese or Lunar New Year.
At this time we often reflect on the cycles of the seasons and the cycles of our lives.
The winter solstice is well behind us and the days are getting longer. In Vancouver, snowdrops are beginning to bloom and many buds and shoots are all around us.
Meanwhile the moon continues its 28 day cycles from new to full and back again.
Chinese New Year and Easter are among the festivals whose date varies according to both sun and moon cycles—the lunisolar calendar.
Art in this show will offer a variety of creative responses to the coming season of spring and the cycles of moon and sun, as both cosmic orbs and as rich metaphors for our own revolutions and resolutions
CALL FOR ARTISTS DETAILS
Any 2-dimensional media is welcome: photographs, paintings, mixed-media. Small 3-D objects may be acceptable. Contact Mary to discuss
Please send me a note with a jpeg and size of your work – up to three pieces – and a short bio and artist statement to Mary Bennett firstname.lastname@example.org. Send by Friday, January 28 – earlier expression of interest would be appreciated. Depending on the number of artists, and the size of your work, each artist might have 1, 2 or 3 pieces in the show.
Drop off and Installation Date
Pick up the December-January work and install new work: Monday, February 1, 2016, 4:30 – 6:00 pm.
If your work is confirmed and you can’t be there at that time, arrange with Mary to drop-off prior to this date. If you have work in the Winter show and need to arrange a different time, contact the office directly.
You are invited to bring either a 3”x5” label with the title, medium, size of your piece or an 8.5 x 11 sheet including the information about your piece plus your bio and artist statement to place near your work. Business cards and contact information can be included but not prices as this is a government office restricted to non-commercial activity. All information should fit within a maximum of 8.5 x 11. I can send a template for you to adapt if you wish.
Opening reception options
If artists wish to have an opening, the space can be booked (no alcohol). For free, open workshops or artist talks the space is also available. Contact the office directly if you’d like to offer something like that or contact Mary if you’d like to help organize a group opening or event.
Artists must live within the Vancouver Point Grey constituency.
