“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 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.

Annual School Art Show, 2019

Following established tradition, the La Ronge Arts Council is once again planning a School Art Exhibit for MAY, 2019.  All students from all of the Tri-Community elementary and high schools are eligible to display their work in this exhibit.   Submitted work will be hung in ‘the Gallery’ at Mistasinihk Place for the entire month of May. Each participating school will be responsible for its own submissions, preparation for hanging, labeling and the actual hanging and takedown of the artworks.  Ideally, a staff member at each school will act as a coordinator for this show. Pretty well anything goes…..two dimensional or three dimensional artwork in any medium, with the following guidelines:
  • Work must be original.  No copies, kits, patterns, colouring pages, etc.  
  • Individual students are limited to 1 piece each.
  • Please do not submit work that is fragile and won’t stand up to traveling, handling, and hanging.  (dry leaves, noodles, etc.)
  • 2-dimensional pieces should be mounted on construction paper or another background to provide a pleasing presentation.  (Keep in mind that pieces shouldn’t be too heavy as we use Sticky-tack to attach artworks to the wall!)
  • For 3-dimensional artworks:  We have limited space in 3 of the acrylic display cases in Mistasinihk Place for exhibiting small pieces.  If you plan to submit pottery or other 3-D work, please let us know in advance so we can allocate space.
  • All pieces must be clearly labelled (label provided on attached sheet.)
  • Pieces must be delivered to Mistasinihk Place at a prearranged time for hanging.  School representatives must hang their own work with the assistance of La Ronge Arts Council members.  (On or around May 1, after school).
  • School representatives will takedown the show at a prearranged time at the end of the month and return the work to their schools.  
A Scavenger Hunt Sheet will be prepared and available to all schools and the general public, which will show a portion of several of the artworks.  Hunters will be asked to identify the work and the artist to complete the scavenger hunt.   There will be no prizes for or judging of the artworks.   Please provide Lori with the name of your school’s contact person/coordinator for this show. For more information, and to share your school’s contact person, please contact Lori Ulriksen at loriulriksen@nlsd113.ca or call me at GDCS 306-425-2997 or my text my personal cell 306-425-7045.
