Call For Artists

 

We have several Community Art Exhibits in the works for the 2018-19 season and beyond.  You could have your work on the walls at Mistasinihk Place in one of these shows.  More information in the tabs below.

“In Stitches Again”, a community show of fibre, textile and related works

The La Ronge Arts Council is once again planning an exhibit of fabric, textile, and related art for JANUARY, 2019.  This can be any ORIGINAL**** artwork in any medium which involves fibre or thread, including beadwork, moose hair tufting, etc.  Displaying your creation gives your community a new experience, gives them beauty, and inspires them too! This exhibit is open to all members of the La Ronge area community, and is planned to hang from Jan.1-31, 2019, so you have a little bit of time to get stitching!

****  ORIGINAL artworks are of your own creation.  Following a pattern or using a kit does NOT make an ORIGINAL artwork!

Your INSPIRATION:  Many of us have a thing about textiles…..sewing, quilting, weaving, felting, tapestry, beadwork, macramé and so on.  (If you aren’t sure if your chosen medium is included just ask!)  We already know there is a lot of passion in this community for this theme as we’ve had this type of show before.  So what is your inspiration?  You tell us! Our part is to inspire you with this invitation.

Your ART:  This can be anything visual, in the textile medium of your choice.  It must be ****ORIGINAL!  Work is limited to two pieces per artist.  It must be ready to hang in our Mistasinihk Place gallery space,which means having a wire or cord hanger or large D-rings on the back that can be used to hang on S-hooks. Sculptural pieces must be small enough to fit into the display cases if they cannot hang on the wall.Small artworks can be displayed in one of the display cases for safety

If your piece needs a frame, the LRAC has frames to lend:11”x14”, 16”x20”, or 18”x24”.  Call Caron at 306-425-3214, or Melissa at 306-420-7789, or email larongeart@gmail.com, if you have questions or want to borrow frames.

“In Contrast”, a community show of artworks in black, white, and the greys in between.

The La Ronge Arts Council is planning a Community Art exhibit for FEBRUARY, 2019. The theme is BLACK and WHITE, so many media are eligible….photography, pencil or ink drawings, printmaking, or paintings that stick to the theme.  This can be any ORIGINAL**** artwork in any medium as long as your only ‘colours’ are black, white and the greys in between.  Displaying your creation gives your community a new experience, gives them beauty, and inspires them too!  This exhibit is open to all members of the La Ronge area community and is planned to hang from Feb. 1-28, 2019, so you have a little bit of time to get creative!

****  ORIGINAL artworks are of your own creation.  Following a pattern or using a kit does NOT make an ORIGINAL artwork!

Your INSPIRATION:  There is often great visual appeal in simplicity.  Show us what you can do without colour!

Your ART:This can be anything visual as long as it is in Black/White.  It must be ORIGINAL****!  Work is limited to two pieces per artist.  It must be ready to hang in our Mistasinihk Place gallery space,which means having a wire hanger or large D-rings on the back that can be used to hang on S-hooks. Sculptural pieces must be small enough to fit into the display cases if they cannot hang on the wall.Small artworks can be displayed in one of the display cases for safety.
