The West Fine Art Show is entering its twelfth year of operation. We are thrilled with our past success and look forward to producing many more high quality shows.
If you are an established artist and wish to be considered as a “Featured Artist” at one of our future shows, the information below will be of interest and should give you a sense of what our shows are like:
First and foremost, the West Fine Art Show features representational art which communicates our Western Canadian environment and lifestyle.
Our shows are designed to present a professional gallery-setting and appearance.
Framed representaional art, sculpture and other exceptional creative works based on western Canada are considered.
The artist fee for being in one of our shows varies but may be as much as $450.
Seven-foot-high ProPanel walls are used exclusively; art mounting equipment and overhead LED lighting are provided.
Each artist will have approximately 32 feet of linear wall space on which to hang their art.
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.
Interested artists must have a considerable body of representaional art, that fits our western Canada theme, and which is framed and ready for sale.
Interested artists must have a Website (not a webpage); this website must be updated and current.
Interested artists should have an active social media presence.
Interested artist should have a past history of selling in art show events.
If you believe that you fit these requirements and wish to express your interest in being a featured artist at one of our shows, you can communicate 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.
We will reply as soon as we can.
ADJUDICATION and our FEATURED ARTIST PARTICIPANT AGREEMENT:
Commencing in 2021, we will use an adjudication process for shows where we have more artists applying than we have show-space to accommodate them all. In the case of an oversubscribed show, we will adjudicate all applicants for that show to build our list of featured artists.
Three months prior to each show, the selected featured artists will receive, by email, our invitation in the form of a Featured Artist Participant Agreement. Once you have read that agreement, we consider the receipt of a deposit from you to be your acceptance of the terms of the aforementioned agreement. The balance of the Artist Participant Agreement entry fee will be collected on the first day of the show.
An invitation, from us, to become a Featured Artist in a specific edition of the West Fine Art Show is a limited invitation to that specific show only and does not confer membership in the West Fine Art Show Society nor any priority or right to be accepted in any subsequent West Fine Art Show.
