CALL FOR ARTISTS

MARK YOUR CALENDARS! You are invited to an optional,  free outdoor ‘Inspiration and Information Session’ to help generate ideas for your group show submission for “Intertidal Impressions”, with your host and educator Janet May: Saturday May 9, at 1PM at the Westview Viewpoint along hwy 101 (where the totem poles and flags are between Kamloops and Lytton Streets on Marine Ave). We will  be descending the footpath to the intertidal zone, so if you have difficulty navigating the path down at the viewpoint, please park and descend on the path just south of there. And as backup we have another possible date: Saturday May 23, at noon.

Summer 2020 MAS Group Show title: Intertidal Impressions

  • Deadline to submit interest and details is May 20, 2020 [with your name, title of your piece, its size, medium, cost (or nfs) and any message you’d like to attach up to 50 words] to giovanni@rabideye.com
  • Deadline to submit work is June 2nd, 2020 

Opening JUNE 4 – SEPTEMBER 15, 2020 Intertidal Impressions: Exploring the space between land & sea through various media- The Malaspina Art Society’s Summer Group Show features qathet region artists exploring the changing sights, sounds, smells, motion, textures, plants and creatures of our northwest intertidal zones: the area of the marine shoreline that is exposed to air at low tide, and covered with seawater when the tide is high; its dynamic nature serving as a metaphor for resilience and adaptation.

  • Qathet Region artists are welcome to submit work in any medium reflecting the changing sights, sounds, smells, motion, textures and tastes of our northwest intertidal zones. The intertidal zone is the area of the marine shoreline that is exposed to air at low tide, and covered with seawater when the tide is high. Its resiliency and ever-changing nature can serve as a metaphor for visual, sound and text-based works. 
  • All the plants and animals that inhabit this zone are marine, but they have adapted to survive in this often challenging environment. At low tide they must be able to survive prolonged exposure to the air, large fluctuations in sun exposure and temperature, shifting salinity due to rain and snow or river run-off , extremes in wave action, as well as predation from land animals during low tide, and marine predators like sea stars and fish when the tide is in.

  • Site with inspirational mixed media works on tidal zones  https://tidalcultures.wordpress.com/tidal-art-works/
