Calling all artists! Artists on Elgin launches its second juried art competition
SUDBURY, ON – January 15, 2013 – Artists on Elgin is excited to officially launch the RBC Dominion Securities “Art Impact” Juried Art Show. The show, the second hosted by Artists on Elgin, is open to artists from across Northeastern Ontario in any two or three-dimensional medium.
Artists on Elgin developed the idea of the “Art Impact” Juried Art Show in an effort to celebrate the talent of Northern Ontario artists while also expressing appreciation for the Vale Living with Lakes Centre and the Cooperative Freshwater Ecology Unit who have been long time supporters of Artists on Elgin. In recognition of the Co-op Unit’s efforts to preserve our freshwater resources, all art work submitted to the competition must represent the show’s theme of “Elements- Earth, Fire, Wind and Water”. All art work in the show will be available for sale.
Submissions will be judged by a jury of highly respected members of the art community, and up to 65 pieces will be chosen for the exhibition, which will take place in June of 2013 at the Vale Living with Lakes Centre. The jury will choose the first, second and third place winners, which will be announced at a reception along with the winner of the People’s Choice award. In addition, a piece of art will be chosen by the Vale Living with Lakes Centre and purchased for them by Artists on Elgin and Vale as a token of our appreciation for their continued support. This piece of art will be permanently displayed in the Vale Living with Lakes Centre.
“This show provides an excellent opportunity for artists working in all mediums to get exposure through promotion of the show, connect with other artists from across the North, and also sell their work, as all 65 pieces that are chosen will be for sale”, says Shelby Ramm, Marketing & Sales Manager for Artists on Elgin.
Artists on Elgin is a project of its parent organization, The Northern Artist Gallery, where artists can exhibit, promote and sell their work in an attractive and professional gallery space. Artists on Elgin aims to build mutually beneficial partnerships between the artists and the community by addressing the business and marketing needs of the local art industry. Artists on Elgin is the ideal place to find that perfect gift for any occasion. Visit us online at www.artistsonelgin.ca, or visit our Facebook Page.
