Fernie Banner Project Call For Entry

2015 Fernie Banner Project Launch Day

“Banner Project 2018

For over the past decade, Elk Valley artists have added their own air to Fernie’s streets offering works of art for the 39 banners that line Highway 3 and downtown. Now, in its 14th year, we are calling out to the artists that call the Elk Valley home to once again to contribute to Fernie’s annual Banner Project. We are thrilled to again highlight various artistic mediums from artists of all ages!

What are the adjudicators looking for? Bold colours, striking imagery that stands out from a distance, variation in themes and artistic disciplines and it has to be eyecatching to the street-level observer. What kind of mediums will be accepted? Submissions of paintings, quilts, stained glass, sculpture, pottery and photography are welcome.”

For more information, check out The Arts Station’s website.

Submissions are due Tuesday, April 3rd at 2pm, so, you have time to get organized!

Fernie Banner Project 2011 – Call For Submissions

Fernie Banner Project - Submission from 2010
From The Arts Station
:
Add your mark to the beauty of Fernie! Now in its eighth year, the city banners that adorn the downtown and Highway #3 have become a trademark of our town.

The Banner Project Committee is looking for 36 diverse works of art to showcase on the 2011 City of Fernie Banners. Selected art will be showcased on high-quality outdoor banners and hung on lampposts along Victoria Avenue. This project has brought colour and interest to our streets and gives more profile to the great artistic talent we have in this community.

What are the adjudicators looking for? “Bold colours, striking imagery that stands out from a distance, variation in themes and artistic disciplines,” says Project Coordinator, Pat Mackay and “It has to be eye-catching to the street-level observer”. Though Pat will not be an adjudicator, she will be setting up this anonymous committee. Having been an adjudicator for many years, she knows the important aspects of the process.

What kind of mediums will be accepted?  Submissions of paintings, quilts, stained glass, sculpture, pottery and photography are welcome. Artists are asked to submit up to two images maximum and the work must be submitted as a jpeg file on a compact disc. Also, please consider carefully the dimensions of the photographed works as the artwork will need to be cropped to a 1 wide by 2 high ratio. Images that do not fit this ratio may have to be adjusted.  Please supply a 70 word bio/description – including your name – as a file on the CD.

If an artist needs assistance with creating the digital photograph of their work, they can contact Courtney Baker at The Arts Station or Pat MacKay, Project Coordinator at 423-4132 and they can put you in touch with a local photographer who is available to help.

Submissions deadline is no later than 3pm on Friday, February 18, 2011. Please drop off a jpeg file and bio/description on CD, with your name written on the disc to the Arts Station before the deadline.  Sorry, but absolutely no submissions after this date will be accepted. Further submission information and guidelines are available on The Arts Station website at http://www.theartsstation.com under “exhibitions”.

The City of Fernie and District Arts Council provides services to help this project but it is the sponsorship of the individual banners that make it sustainable. Each banner is available for sponsorship at the cost of $100. The banners are hung along Victoria Ave and 4th St. for one year, and then re-located to the highway. After two years on display the sponsor will receive the banner. If you are keen to become a sponsor of one of the banners, they will be presented at The Banner Project Launch being hosted at the Arts Station. This much anticipated annual event is scheduled to be held on Thursday, April 14th, 2011 at 7pm during BC Arts & Culture Week. Stay tuned for more details on the launch!

Please find attached images of some of last years banners.
