HOW TO BECOME A FEATURED ARTIST
Welcome to the “West”
Here is the 2018 show schedule:
March 9-11 Early Spring Show in North Langley
May 18-21 Cloverdale Rodeo and Exhibition in Cloverdale, Surrey
September 7-9 Late Summer Show in South Langley (note this show is now full)
First and foremost our show features representational art that depicts our western Canadian environment.
Artists should have a considerable body of this type of work. They should have a website and other social media presence in place as well as a past history of participating in a number of art show events.
Secondly, we would like to give you a sense of what our shows are like:
Our shows are not produced as craft fairs.
We strive for a gallery-setting and appearance.
Framed representaional art, sculpture and other exceptional creative works are considered.
The artist fee for being in one of our shows varies but can be as much as $500.
The show look is achieved by the use of ProPanels and lighting as seen above.
Artists are expected to be present at all times during the show opening hours.
A specified portion of all art sales will be directed, by the artist, towards the charity or charities that are partnered with any particular show.
If you wish to express your interest, you can begin by emailing us via this website; simply press this link and send an email to us. Please make this initial email as brief as possible; send only a short description of your work, and your website address so that we can see your work.
You will receive a reply.
ACCEPTANCE AND OUR ARTIST PARTICIPANT AGREEMENT:
Should you be accepted into a West Fine Art Show, you will receive, by email, an Artist Participant Agreement. Once you have read the Artist Participation Agreement, we consider the receipt of your deposit cheque, made payable to The West Fine Art Show Society, as your acceptance of the terms of the aforementioned agreement. Your deposit becomes non refundable 60 days prior to the show. The balance of the Artist Participant Agreement entry fee will be collected on the first day of the show; this payment is to be in the form of a cheque or cash.
An artist accepted into a specific West Fine Art Show is accepted into that specific show only. Being accepted into a West Fine Art Show does not confer any membership in the West Fine Art Show Society or right to be accepted in future shows. Each of our shows are individually curated and artists will either be invited or must apply to be considered.
NOTE: Artists who may be thinking of purchasing show panels for their professional use may wish to consider purchasing the same panels and lighting that The West Fine Art Show uses. These can be found at www.propanels.com; we can offer advice on these products if you are interested.
