Theme set for spring art show
“Brown & Earth Tones” will be the theme of the 2013 spring art exhibit at the Fine Line Art Gallery here.
Interested artists “can do anything they want with the colour brown,” said Fine Line co-op member Jean Richards, adding it’s important that artists stick to brown and earth tones only.
Richards noted winter is the perfect time for artists to start working on projects, giving them the next few months to get their entries ready.
As in past years, entries can be any size and in any medium, including photography, any kind of paint, ink, stained glass, sculpture, or pretty much anything else.
Artists are free to drop by the gallery (located at 529 Mowat Ave.), look around, and chat with co-op members to get ideas.
The gallery also hosts an open studio every Tuesday from 6-9 p.m. and Wednesdays from 10 a.m.-4 p.m.
This is a good chance for artists to work on projects away from home, as well as share tips with other artists while they’re at it.
The cost to attend is $5.
There will be a $10 fee to enter the spring exhibit, but artists do not have to be a Fine Line member in order to submit their work.
Artwork also can be for sale or strictly for exhibition.
The date of the show still is being confirmed, but it likely will open either at the end of April or in early May and then run for at least a month.
“Brown & Earth Tones” continues the pattern of colours and objects/concepts as themes for the annual exhibit.
Last year’s theme was “Hats” while the theme in 2011 was “Black & White,” preceded by “Gold” in 2010.
Anyone with questions is invited to visit the Fine Line Art Gallery or call 274-2242.
