Thank you so much to those of you who have already sent applications to exhibit in Saint Ignatius Art Show 2017, and also to those artists who have indicated that this is not their year.
Please be advised an extension to the submission date has come into effect.
NEW DUE DATE IS MIDNIGHT, APRIL 1ST 2017
As you will know, the advertised due date for applications was this Monday 13th March. This extension gives any of you who need it a bit extra time to prepare a submission and those of you who have already sent one in, you can add to it if you wish.
The deciding panel meeting will be on the 10th April, and artists will all be informed of the outcome by the 14th April.
Registration for SALA is May 15th 2017.
The Art Show selection will be complete well before the May date. Successful applicants will be issued the registration number so you can apply for awards.
In other news, Foodland Norwood are sponsoring a “Rector’s Choice” prize in the exhibition.
This is to purchase a work or works for the public spaces in the new School administration building at Saint Ignatius Senior School, named The Caroline Chisholm Building.
A panel (yet to be determined) will select finalists from the exhibited works, who will be acknowledged, and the work to be purchased will be selected form those finalists.
The Artist will be acknowledged when the work is hung in the new building. There is no need for a theme, but it may be an opportunity for you to exhibit larger works that sit well in a public space. (The size is still limited to less than 2.4m high). A group of small works could also be selected. There is no need to enter separately for this prize – all exhibited Artists will be considered.
ALL EXHIBITING ARTISTS ARE ELIGIBLE FOR RECTOR’S CHOICE PRIZE.
Effectively, this means that there are three prizes attached the Art Show:
- People’s choice (for exhibiting Artists)
- Rector’s choice (for exhibiting Artists)
- Best small work in the “SHHH…. It’s a library” section (open to any and all Artists)
