A CALL TO ARTISTS!!!!
Saturday August 18, 2012
The West Carleton Arts Society is pleased to announce its first summer art show and festival! ARTstravaganza is coming to West Carleton, to be held in the village of Carp!
On Saturday August 18, 2012 you will find artists and fine crafts people set up in the big field of the Carp Agricultural Society. As you make your way from booth to booth you and your family will enjoy the eclectic sounds and sensations from the buskers, musicians and clowns who will be invited to participate.
Expect to find top quality art in every medium from Ottawa area artists. We’re inviting potters, sculptors, photographers, painters, basket weavers, jewelry makers and many other fine artists and craftspeople. We’re even going to have fun stuff for children!
While the show is on, some artists will set up in various parts of the village of Carp. Both budding and experienced artists will be painting on site “en plein air”. Stop by and see what they’re up to and have a chat. Their work(s) for that day will be exhibited and juried at the end of the show.
During the festival visitors will be in invited to participate in a fun project where you can paint a Carp on our new welcome “CARP-et”. Brushes and paint supplied. Once the carpet is finished it will be varnished and laid out at the door of our Expressions of Art show on the Thanksgiving weekend. Come back that day and walk an artist’s version of the “red” carpet.
If you’re an artist or fine craftsperson who would like to participate in this exciting summer art show and festival as a vendor, busker or plein air painter please contact Kate Ryckman at email@example.com
If you’re a serious art collector or you just want something fun to do with the family come on out to our ARTstravaganza Show and Festival! Admission to the show is FREE. And while you’re here, why not stop by the farmers’ market right next door for locally grown, fresh produce.
