Well, it’s that time again. When the leaves start falling it’s a reminder that it’s time to start working on my submissions to the Anonymous Art Show at the CityScape Community Art Space in North Van. I love this annual art show. It’s a great opportunity to create something new and be a part of something – even if life is hectic, there’s always time to do an 8″ x 8″. Actually, I’m going to back track on that comment. I always think there’s time to do an 8″ x 8″ because hey, that’s pretty small… right? But then I remember how much I prefer painting larger canvasses. So, I’m starting early this year. You know, to leave some time for trial and error.
My boyfriend and I were in a store recently and I crammed myself into a child-sized donut Halloween costume. I kept thinking about pretty pink donuts. So when we sat down to work on our submissions recently, this is what I came up with. Apparently painting this didn’t get the donut thoughts out of my system, because I still want to be a donut for Halloween. We’ll see. We’ll see.
How the show works
The Anonymous Art Show brings together local emerging and established artists, all paintings are priced at $100 and there is no signature on the front of the painting. In addition to being a great opportunity for people to purchase local art as gifts, it’s also an awesome fundraiser for the North Van Community Arts Council. All pieces are done on 8″ x 8″ x 1.5″ supports and when one is bought, it’s taken right off the wall at the time of purchase.
- Deadline for submissions: October 29 (4pm)
- Opening reception: November 17 (7-9pm)
- Show open to the public: November 18 – December 17
