From my friend Sarah….
Hello Dear Artist Friends…:O)…
I am excited to announce that, Papergirl Kelowna 2011, will be happening mid October, with the event itself being held at the Rotary Centre for the Arts, Kelowna.
Papergirl Kelowna is an art project which involves artists donating artwork to be given freely away to members of the public. The Papergirl aspect involves riders on bicycles cycling out into the community and giving several rolled up pieces of art to random members of the community for free. It offers the opportunity for people to be exposed to and experience art in a very unique and personal way. As a participant last year I witnessed first hand the happiness and exhilaration that was experienced by this generosity.
Before the actual donation takes place we exhibit the art and host an event party showcasing local musicians.
In sending this to you, we hope you will support us with an art donation. We ask for rollable art, prints or originals, photographs, written word, art cards, or rollable textiles. The quantity is not limited as the more art we recieve, the more we can give.
As a participant, we will promote you on our website and display your work at the event. You may also include your artist statement and photograph. We also encourage you to write a message to the recipient on the back of your art.
We are really looking forward to this year, we collected over 600 pieces of art last year and hope to raise at least 1000 this time around. We were also happy to welcome art from people throughout the globe.
We have 2 submission locations…
The New Moon Gallery, 1B-2525 Dobbin Rd, West Kelowna, BC, V4T 2GI
and Studio 113, The Rotary Centre for the Arts, Cawston Ave, Kelowna, BC V1Y 621.
Please protect your packages (flat works best) and address to Papergirl Kelowna. Closing date October the 7th.
We appreciate early donations..:O).
Visit our website for more information, photographs, and videos of last years event.
