SPECTRUM Call to Artists

  • Saturday, February 15, 2020
  • 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM
  • Silk Purse Arts Centre


Registration is closed

All artists, established & emerging are invited to submit work for our annual open invitation exhibition 
SPECTRUM. The first 25 artists to submit 1 work of art will be featured in a 3 week group exhibition from February 25 - March 15!

This year we’re looking for work responding to the theme ‘A Cultural Conversation on Climate Change’. Artists are invited to interpret this conversation through subject matter & medium. Explore themes of sustainability, environment, industrialization, awareness, conservation, the effects of the climate crisis & what the Arts can do to impact & improve the future of our home. 

Artists are strongly encouraged to use recycled materials in creating their piece - paint over an old canvas, transform your used plastic bottles or bags, reuse parts of a previous sculpture, incorporate fabric from clothes that no longer fit, use leftover house paint! Consider using eco-friendly green materials - hand made pigments from natural sources, botanical printing, hand spun wool, dried vegetation! The possibilities are endless!

Our goal with this exhibition is to showcase the talented artists in our community working in a broad spectrum of styles & subject matter; encouraging them to share their gifts for all to see; & to empower the Arts role in this important dialogue.

Artists-take a chance & share your artistic gifts with the world!
