Call for entries to airport art program

The Comox Valley Airport Commission and the Comox Valley Community Arts Council are seeking submissions for the 2014 Art and Culture Program at the Comox Valley Airport. This year’s exhibition, entitled Wanderlust Vancouver Island will run for six months from November 2014 to May 2015.

In this call for submissions, the airport is seeking two and three dimensional art pieces that celebrate the theme of Wanderlust Vancouver Island. This could include representations of the region’s landscape, environment, people, places, activities, or the artist’s own unique interpretation of what makes Vancouver Island such a wonderful place to experience.

Art submissions may be in the form of paintings, original prints, photography, mixed media, textiles and/or sculpture.

Open to all artists residing in the Comox Valley Airport’s catchment area of Northern Vancouver Island. Boundaries include Parksville, Port Alberni and Ucluelet in the south; the Pacific Ocean to the west; Powell River to the east (including Texada, Denman, Hornby, Quadra, Cortes, Alert Bay and Sointula); and the Pacific Ocean to the north.

Entries will be accepted from Aug. 1-31.  To view the submission guidelines go to www.comoxvalleyarts.com or www.comoxairport.com.
