Call to Artists: For Remembrance Day 2020 we would like to invite you to join us in honouring our veterans. We feel that a significant amount of people have been directly impacted by those who gave their time, and in some cases, their lives, for our freedom. We would like to acknowledge the courage and sacrifice of those who served their country, some of which may have been our grandparents, or close relatives. With that being said, The Art Incubator, and Coulter’s Furniture proudly present, the first annual “Poppy Art Campaign”.We invite visual artists to donate their time and talent to create one or more poppy paintings with materials graciously sponsored by Coulter’s Furniture. We have invited local Veterans to be at the event, and 100% of proceeds will be donated to them! These artworks can be created in your own time in your homes or studios.
Alternatively, you can join us on Friday, October 30th, from 1pm until 7pm, for a day of creativity at The Art Incubator location during which we will be “all-hands” painting and drawing for this important cause.*This will be a COVID-friendly event and will be by appointment! We will then collect all the completed artworks and display them on a wall at Coulter’s Furniture. Each poppy art will be available for a fixed donation of $50 during the weeks leading up to November 7. Then, this initiative will culminate on that day with an event at Coulter’s during which we will invite you and the public to view and/or purchase the artworks in person. The event itself, will be Saturday, November 7th from 11am – 4pm COVID friendly art creation kits will be available for pick up at The Art Incubator starting on October 16th and the deadline for the drop-off ready artworks is November 2nd by 6pm. Kit Pickups: October 19th – 4-6pm, October 20th – 5-7pm. Kits Include: an 8”x10” artist board, containers of red, black, and white paint, paintbrush* Artists are welcome to use their own additional materials if they so choose.
Thank you for joining us in honouring our veterans in this unique way, while also adding to the creative community in our beautiful city. Lest we forget.
