18 at the Salmon Arm Arts Centre
Salmon Arm Art Gallery is pleased to present another open exhibition opportunity for creative people in the visual arts. To launch the 2018 year, the exhibition “18” will feature all media in the dimensions of 18x18 inches or 18x18x18 inches.
Artists of all media have been creating their 18” works for the past few months, and delivery day is upon us. Monday, January 15 from 10am to 1pm, artists are welcome to deliver as many 18” works as they wish, for installation in the exhibition that is set to open Friday, January 19, 2018 at 7pm. The opening reception will feature live music and wonderful refreshments, and admission is by donation.
“The exhibition will be installed like a gigantic pixelated image, with works right next to each other. We have no idea what to expect with an open exhibition that anyone can enter, only that with a precise format, we can be creative in how we group the works,” says Director/Curator Tracey Kutschker. Each year, the Art Gallery offers an opportunity for artists to experiment, challenge themselves and perhaps try something completely different. Last year, the Red & White Do-It exhibition saw 107 artists participate, with about 25% of them being first-time exhibitors.
The 18 exhibition will run from January 20 to February 24, 2018, and is generously sponsored by The Stacer Team. Gallery hours are Tuesday to Saturday, 11am to 4pm. Admission is by donation. Family Saturdays runs each Saturday 11am to 3:30pm and welcomes families with children aged 2 to 12 to get creative together. Coffee Break and Artist Talk is on Thursday, February 15 beginning at 2pm.
