Extension date for Interested Artists 

Image result for more time imagesDear Artists,
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:

  1. People’s choice (for exhibiting Artists)
  2. Rector’s choice (for exhibiting Artists)
  3. Best small work in the “SHHH…. It’s a library” section (open to any and all Artists)

SHHHHH… IT’S A LIBRARY.

book-piles

Have you ever wanted to create an artwork with Dickens, Dickinson, Dick, Dante, Drabble, Defoe, Durrell, Deaver or Dahl or maybe someone from the next index card?

Well here’s your chance.

Art and Libraries are a match made in wainscoting, avenues of shelves, and the beloved Dewy system heaven. Tight buns stuck with pencils, slick suits and hounds tooth blazers, an audience of captive imaginations and the only noise is the turning of a page or the awkward squeak of the returns trolley.

Saint Ignatius Art Show’s small works installation is entering its third year. It is a highly anticipated aspect of the Saint Ignatius Art Show.

You are invited to contribute to this unique installation.

This year we supply you with a small (200mm x 150mm ish) old hard cover book.

Your task is to imagine and then create the “SHHHHH it’s a library” artwork made or influenced by said book before the due date stamped in the back.

Use the book as a point of departure for a 2 or 3 dimensional work. Cut, paint, write, collage, build or burn your book into a work for sale in the 2017 Saint Ignatius Art Show’s small works installation.

All works are donated by the Artist in lieu of the Art Show exhibiting fee, and will be sold for $80 with proceeds going to the school.

There will be a prize for the best Artwork in the installation, judged by the Sponsor.

Non exhibiting Artists are eligible to enter.

Get to work but remember……

“SHHHHH……it’s a library.”
