Submitted by Penny Richardson-Once again, the QCI arts Council and the Haida Gwaii Museum are co-hosting the annual all islands art show scheduled for February 20, 2004. This will be the seventh annual exhibition to showcase the fine caliber of artists and artisans living in our Islands’ community. In past exhibits we have seen glass, fine weaving, textiles, carvings, watercolor, acrylic and oil paintings, graphite works, mosaics, pottery and other media grace the gallery walls and plinths in the museum. What happy anticipation for 2004!
The criteria for entering a work in the 2004 exhibit are as follows. The work must be original (not produced from a kit), created within the last twelve months and not previously exhibited. The artist must be over the age of nineteen and pay an entry fee of ten dollars, or be a member of the QCI arts council. Each piece must be completed (not a work in progress, please) and ready for exhibiting.
Call for entry forms will be found at each community’s post office in the near future, and at the museum. Contact Penny Richardson for queries and clarification at 250-557-4321 or ><
Theresa Towers Rickard from Red Deer, Alberta will be adjudicating the exhibit again this year. Theresa did an exemplary job of adjudicating last year’s works, and is delighted to return to view the 2004 show.
So pen in the date, Friday, Feb 20, 2004 in your day books, calendars and schedules as one of the cultural, social, art appreciation events of the year, certainly the winter!
