Submissions wanted for 2013 Art on the Line


Artmadillo, Art on the Line 2013The 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.

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.
