Your camera club executive has decided to participate in the 2017 Kanata-Carleton Cultural Festival which will take place May 27th at Earl of March High School and in Sandwell Green park.
There are 5 confirmed groups taking part in the visual art exhibition in the Earl of March foyer: Kanata Art Club, Richmond Art Association, West Carleton Arts Society, Kanata Civic Art Gallery (possibly the Ottawa West Arts Association). Each group will provide volunteers for their own booth. Visual Art Organizer for Kanata-Carleton Cultural Festival, is Judi Miller, local Artist.
The Kanata Civic Art Gallery has offered to provide 10 display grids to our group, to set up a booth. The Grids are 6’x2′. The Earl can provide us with a table for information, if required. As participants we must present a hands-on arty activity for children. The Kanata Civic Art Gallery will lead this activity. We will need to decide and submit our activity by second week in May.
Those who wish to show their photographs, you will also volunteer 2 hours (or more) while engaging the public about your work and the Club’s activities during your showing period.
Photographs will be Artist’s choice. They must be matted, mounted or framed with your name. There will be a “People’s Choice Award” with the public voting on their favourites. The Club is looking for a sponsor to provide an incentive for the Artist.
Set up and take down timing has yet to be determined but the venue opens at 9:00 am and ends at 9:00pm.
If there are people who are interested in showing their work please contact me by email here. There may be other gallery opportunities in the region during the year so stay tuned.
