Artists of all ages are being invited to participate in what’s called an Incognito fundraising art event.
The Lngley Arts Council is inviting artists to sign up for this art show, being held at the Langley Township Civic Facility starting later this month.
The deadline to enter is Friday, Oct. 14, with the art being displayed from Oct. 28 to Dec. 16.
All pieces must be two dimensional unframed 12” x 12”x 1½” pieces, on wrapped canvas or cradleboard. Sculpture is not workable for this exhibit. There is a limit of three pieces per artist.
Each piece is priced at $100, with all proceeds split 50/50 between the artist and the arts council.
The name of the artist is hidden until the sale is made.
Organizers say they’re looking to build upon the success of the previous show in March, describing the show as one of the biggest of the year.
A reception is being organized for Nov. 4. More details to come.
In the meantime, more details about the criteria and the deadline are available online at: http://langleyarts.ca/face-to-face-with-the-lac/
