Art show deadline coming up


With the Fine Line Art Gallery’s annual spring art show coming up April 10-May 6, artists must get their pieces in for the exhibit by this coming Wednesday (April 5).

Jean Richards, a member of the Fine Line co-op, said yesterday that 16 paintings had come in so far, but she expects many more prior to the deadline.

“We usually have around 35 or 40, so we’re hoping to see that again,” she remarked.

The pieces have to be in by Wednesday in order to give co-op members time to set up the “Seeing Red” exhibition, which opens April 10 and wraps up with a “Music in the Gallery” event on the evening of May 6 (featuring music and refreshments).

The theme for this year’s show is the colour red, following in the footsteps of “Shades of Yellow” in 2002 and “Out of the Blues” in 2004.

Richards noted the theme is open to any interpretation—be it variations on the colour, an emotion, or anything else artists can think of.

And artists’ work may be in any medium (watercolour, oil, stained glass, sculpture, etc.)

The cost to enter is $10, and artists are limited to one work each. If the artist so desires, their piece will be for sale.

Artists wanting to enter their work in the show should fill out an entry form at the Fine Line Art Gallery (529 Mowat Ave.) and pay their fee prior to the April 5 deadline.

Any questions? Call 274-1269.

In related news, the Fine Line Art Gallery will have a table set up at the Business Women’s Network annual spring tea and fashion show tomorrow.

This event will take place from 2-4 p.m. at Knox United Church here, with the fashion show starting at 3 p.m.
