Appeal to get ‘rooted in the arts’
Central Alberta artists are encouraged to “get rooted in the arts.”
A call for submissions has been made for local artworks for an exhibit to be held in Red Deer from May 13 to June 22.
The juried display at the Harris Warke Gallery will be part of the cultural events held next spring to celebrate Red Deer’s selection as host city for the 2013 Lieutenant Governor of Alberta Distinguished Art Awards.
Artists living in Red Deer and Red Deer County are encouraged to create works along the “Get Rooted” theme.
This can be interpreted literally, or metaphorically along the lines of being anchored, centred, entrenched or grounded. The artworks can relate to Red Deer’s geography, centennial or another interpretation.
The submitted works will be judged by a panel of professional artists, based on excellence and thematic relevance. All mediums will be considered, except for performance and video works.
The deadline for submissions is Feb. 22 at 4 p.m. The guidelines and application forms can be found at www.reddeer.ca/culture.
