Sooke Fine Arts Show
Application Deadline: June 5, 2017
The Sooke Fine Arts Show provides the opportunity for the finest artists from Vancouver Island and BC’s coastal islands to showcase and sell their work. Celebrating its 31st anniversary in 2017, it is Vancouver Island’s longest-running juried fine art show and the region’s premier summer arts event.
The show is open to artists resident (including part-time residents) on any of BC’s coastal islands, including Vancouver Island, the Gulf Islands and Haida Gwaii.
All artwork must be of a high calibre and display a good understanding of the medium. Artwork must be the original creation of the artist, with an emphasis on technical ability as well as artistic accomplishment. Work that features new methods and ideas, that is advanced, inventive and displays creativity is encouraged. Roughly 375 pieces will be chosen for exhibition by our jurors from among more than 1400 submissions. Artists’ work is anonymous during the jurying process to ensure impartiality and individual works are selected on their merits.
