WE Arts Society is pleased to announce the Weekly West End Art Market in the soon to be completed Jim Deva Plaza at Davie St and Bute St, in Vancouver’s West End.

 

The Event: Vancouver’s West End is home to many artists, our city and region is full of creative folk. This new local art market is designed to showcase and sell local arts, becoming a regular feature for the West End.

In the last 2 years, two trial markets surprised locals and were well received, with limited publicity. Establishing a weekly art market not only delivers on the number one priority of the recent Art Plan Vision for the West End, providing a fun vibrant venue for artists show and sell there work, it also provides animation and connection for our diverse local community, attracting local and visiting arts fans to the neighborhood.

Artists: local artists are invited to submit applications for the market, we expect tented tables and a small stage. Please provide your contact number, email, where you live and a pdf of your work toevents@wearts.ca

Applications are not limited to West End Artists, both emerging and established artists are welcome from the region, priority will be given to those artists demonstrating the ability to package and sell their work. Don’t be shy, if you are tempted and not sure, apply, you never know what will sell unless you try.

Performers: The weekly art market will include live performances and demonstrations of art and artists of all genres. Please feel free to submit your suggestions to events@wearts.ca

The Organization: WE Arts and the West End Business Improvement Association (WEBIA) are partnering in the production of this weekly arts market. WEBIA and WE Arts have been working closely for the past 3 years in developing the arts vision and possibilities for animating the streets with arts. With over 20% of our West End community being artistically inclined it is high time for us to showcase the works of Vancouver’s most artful neighborhood.

Jim Deva Plaza: the new plaza on Bute Street to the south side of Davie Street is in celebration of local LGBTQ activist Jim Deva. Jim stood for inclusion, welcome, acceptance, expression, free speech, influencing not only the LGBTQ community here in Vancouver, nationally in Canada, and worldwide, but also human rights that benefit us all. WE Arts is proud to partner in this celebration of welcome, creativity and diversity for us all. The plaza will include a speakers corner, as every voice matters.

 

I look forward to hearing from you!!

Call for Artists | Santorini Biennale 2016

santorini-biennale-2016-alice-wonderland-3.jpg

ARTISTIC THEME

Alice’s adventures in Wonderland. Who is Alice, where is Wonderland and what is the Wonder?

Alice is moving in a world where the established perceptions about life are overruled and the “common morality” is mocked with great passion. Even if these two elements are mainly found in the work of Albert Camus, in the case of Alice we observe a “system of absolute freedom” same as the system supported by Sartre, in which the individual has the absolute liberty to determine his personality. But is this possible? Is “every Alice” a being that has been placed into “existence” without commitments and suggested to shape itself and its environment?

Buffalo Pound Sculpture Project Worth $160,000 
Prairie Spirit Connections Inc. of Regina, Saskatchewan, is commissioning the creation of a large, outdoor, three-dimensional sculptural work of art that represents Indigenous heritage – and is asking for your Expression of Interest. The artist should have experience in working with large pieces of sculpture and have the ability to create and securely place the sculpture in a natural setting. The sculpture is intended to honour Indigenous peoples, particularly those who lived in or depended upon the Great Plains area of Saskatchewan. The sculptural feature is to serve as a remembrance of past generations as well as to transmit Native culture to future generations.
Your Expression of Interest should include information about your personal background and expertise, pictures to serve as examples of your work, and your ideas or suggestions for the piece: i.e. size, materials, rough idea of imagery, etc. Your Expression of Interest will be kept confidential and will be reviewed by a selection committee who will select the top four submissions. Finalists will be invited to submit a more detailed proposal and will receive an honorarium of $1000 for their submission. Inquiries should be directed to Elmer Brenner, artistic coordinator for the project, at elmerb.psc@gmail.com or by calling (306) 530-7196.
The Expression of Interest is due by July 29, 2016 and is to be emailed to Elmer Brenner atelmerb.psc@gmail.com, delivered to Laurie Clark at Prairie Spirit Connections Inc. 809 Victoria Ave, Regina, Saskatchewan, S4N 0R5 by 4:00pm on the due date, or mailed to Laurie Clark at Prairie Spirit Connections Inc. with a postmark no later than July 29, 2016.
