The call is out to all visual artists in the Okanagan to contribute their artwork for the 11th annual Art on the Line fundraiser.
Presented by the Visual Arts department in the Faculty of Creative and Critical Studies (FCCS), Art on the Line is a popular auction of sorts based on a vast selection of juried artwork donated by students, faculty, community members, and noted local artists.
Art on the Line submissions help fund the fourth-year BFA students’ graduation art show.
Contributors are asked to drop off artwork by the submission deadline — January 10, 2013 — outside the 4th Year Studio at FIN226 (second floor of the Fine Arts Building). Please ensure submissions are labelled correctly; make sure paper or fragile submissions are properly protected and/or framed.
Questions about the submission process can be addressed to FCCS student Elysse Bujold.
Art on the Line tickets
This academic year, Art on the Line will be held January 26th, 2013, at UBC’s Fipke Centre. The event traditionally includes visual mediums such as drawing, painting, printmaking, photography, and mixed media.
With a selection order based on a random lottery system, Art on the Line ticket holders are entitled to one piece of original juried art. After the last ticket holder chooses from the large selection, the remaining artwork becomes available for purchase.
There will be 100 tickets sold for Art on the Line at $175 each. One ticket admits two people and entitles the holder to one piece of original juried art, appetizers courtesy of the Bike Shop Cafe and Catering Co., and live music by The Malarkeys.
