Local artists are gearing up for the 34th annual Members Exhibition at the Campbell River Art Gallery.

Gallery Members’ Exhibition registration open

Registration is now open for the 34th annual Members’ Exhibition at the Art Gallery, being held this coming March.

The Annual Members’ Exhibition is a popular benefit of being a member of the Campbell River Arts Council and Campbell River Art Gallery.

The exhibition features local artists in the Campbell River Art Gallery’s Main Exhibition Hall.

The show is an un-juried exhibition with three Peer Awards to be given at the end of the exhibition.

Members are encouraged to submit an artwork that will go on display for the full duration of the exhibition in celebration of our artistic community.

In addition to the exhibition, the gallery will also be holding a fundraising component in the Discovery Gallery. The fundraiser, called TRACE, will feature small original works on paper by exhibiting artists, for sale at $50 each. All proceeds will go to the Members’ Exhibition costs.

How to participate: Artists

Sign up or renew your Campbell River Arts Council and Campbell River Art Gallery memberships. If your membership to either of these organization lapses soon, or during the duration of the exhibition, they ask that you renew your application prior to applying to be part of the exhibition.

Register for the show by Thursday, Feb. 18. Registration forms are available online at crartgallery.ca or at the gallery, and can be submitted by email to curator@crartgallery.ca, mailed to the gallery or delivered in person. Late or incomplete applications will not be accepted.

There is also a $10 entry fee for adults. Youth (aged 12-19) entries have no entry fee.

Label and drop off your work at the gallery on March 5 from noon to 5 p.m. Page four of the registration form is your identification for your work and must be included at the time of drop off.

Works must be original, created within the last three years and must not have been previously shown at the gallery.

Then enjoy the show. Be sure to attend the opening reception and TRACE art sale fundraiser on Friday, March 11 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.

Art pickup happens on Saturday, April 16 from noon to 5 p.m.

How to participate: Public

Show up during the exhibition and enjoy the art.

Also, the public has a role in the show.

Gallery visitors during the exhibition will be given a ballot to choose three specific awards: Innovation, Originality and People’s Choice.

The Innovation Award recognizes success in realization of concept and interesting use of material.

The Originality Award recognizes originality in approach, concept and use of medium.

The People’s Choice Award is a subjective choice.

Just pick your favourite!
