I am a long time supporter of Gallery Vertigo, and believe in their mission, which is artists helping artists at a very grassroots level. They have an event coming up called Almost Famous which is one of my favourite events in the Okanagan valley. The Call to Artists has just been announced, and interested artists can get the submission form here: online form.
Almost Famous has original artworks created by local artists up in a silent auction, but these artworks have a unique twist in that the artist “copies” or “reinvents” a masterpiece from the past. Considering that Picasso created 58 works based on Las Meninas from Diego Velázquez and these 58 works are all on display at the Museu Picasso in Barcelona (which I saw this spring), these Almost Famous works should not be under appreciated. You really don’t know where our local artists are going to be in fifty years, and if you are lucky enough to be the successful bidder, you might just happen to have a winner in your hands. I contribute two or three each year. These are fun for me, and I always learn something new about the artist on whom I am focusing. It’s a win/win.
I hope to see you there! All the book signings are set up to show the benefits of cooperation and partnering with your fellow artist, or your favourite business.
