CALL FOR 2018 EXHIBITION PROPOSALS
Peachland Art Gallery
IN “ARTISTS IN STUDIO”
WED. AUG. 2nd – WED. AUG. 30th /2017
The Peachland Art Gallery is proposing an “Artists in Studio” exhibition Aug. 2nd – Aug. 30th, 9-5. This will coincide with “Art in the Park” that will be displayed during the same time frame.
Our vision is to have 5 artists each week which allows us to offer this opportunity to a total of 20 artists. Ideally, we would like to have 2 artists working in the studio each day. This would require a commitment of approximately 2 ½ days from each participating artist. The hours can be worked out amongst the group and could be divided into 2 shifts a day 9 – 1 and 1 – 5 or full days, entirely up to the discretion of the artists. The fourth week requires an additional day of coverage. Each group of artists will be responsible to work out their own schedule to provide full coverage in the gallery.
This is an opportunity for you to display your work as well as help inspire you to paint. You will be able to set up your work space for the entire week. There will be interaction with visitors, last year we had approximately 1400 visitors in the month of August.
As per our gallery standards, artists, if not already members, will be required to become a member of the PCAC – Single $10/YR Family $15. Commission on sales is 20%. Each artist must sign a waiver form. acknowledging the PCAC does not carry insurance on your work while on display in the gallery.
In responding to the call, please list a Number 1, 2 & 3 preferred choices for weeks available. If you would prefer to work with another artist, please indicate that as well. We will try to accommodate everyone as much as we can.
The weeks are:
WEEK 1 – Wed. Aug.2nd – Tuesday, Aug. 8th – 9-5 Daily
WEEK 2 – Wed. Aug.9th – Tuesday, Aug.15th -9-5 Daily
WEEK 3 – Wed. Aug. 16th -Tuesday, Aug. 22nd -9-5 Daily
WEEK 4 – Wed. Aug. 23rd – Wednesday, Aug. 30th -9-5 Daily

This program was cancelled last year due to minimal interest so we are hoping to have enough artists responding to allow us to revive this exciting and fun opportunity.
If you would like to participate please send your contact information as well as your preferred choice of weeks to Janet @ firstname.lastname@example.org no later than Monday, July 3rd /2017.

Call to Artists who have the Spirit of the Okanagan
The annual callout to Thompson Okanagan Artists to have the opportunity for a presence at Kelowna International Airport (YLW) in 2017 runs from January 1 to 31st.
All artists who live and work in the Thompson Okanagan area, from Kamloops to Osoyoos, are welcome to submit their work for the art kiosk in the YLW departures lounge. The kiosk, branded “Spirit of the Okanagan,” is managed by Suk’wtemsqilxw West Kelowna Arts Council (SWAC).
Artists are selected annually via jury, with the focus on the Okanagan theme and quality of work. The cost to submit work for jurying is $30, which doubles as a membership fee to SWAC. Twenty artists will be selected in 2017, ideally with half of those artists being Indigenous and half non-Indigenous, in keeping with the philosophy of the Arts Council.
“The goal of the airport art kiosk is to sell, and SWAC is proud to say revenue to Okanagan artists in our first year is around $20,000. Considering the majority of those sales are between $30 and $70, that’s quite outstanding,” said Julia Trops, SWAC Chair and Spirit of the Okanagan Founder. “We have a very defined set of protocols for the artists, and having this structure is what has made the Spirit of the Okanagan kiosk successful.”
Skyway Gourmet Ventures Inc. processes the sales of artwork, with the artist paying a 30 per cent commission. Revenue generation from the artwork is the priority, and chosen works should be considered mementos, capturing experiences throughout the valley. All artwork must be original and Okanagan themed, creating an authentic, tangible memory for visitors.
“We’re very pleased to support this program as it creates a sense of place for our passengers,” said John Devitt, YLW’s Manager of Business Development and Community Relations. “With nearly 2,500 travellers through the departures lounge every day, it’s also a great opportunity for local artists to gain exposure.”
Future possibilities at YLW for Thompson Okanagan artists include the artwork displays, to work in the departures lounge and to speak or participate in workshops. YLW plays a vital part in the economic development and prosperity of the Okanagan Valley, and the door is now opened for artists to be included.
