Call to Artists for group show at Zack Gallery

Invitation to artists to exhibit their work in the Zack Gallery.

Call to artists for our spring Festival Ha’Rikud in celebration of Israel at 70, on the theme of Israeli Music through the years.

This is an unjuried call to artists of all levels who would like to participate in a group show in celebration of Festival Ha’Rikud at the Sidney and Gertrude Zack Gallery at the Jewish Community Centre:

950 West 41st Ave
Vancouver, BC  V5Z 2N7

Here is the basic idea. A 10 day silent auction of artist created Israeli music themed cradled wood panels, with proceeds going towards the Zack Gallery.

We would like to offer each artist a small cradled wood panel from Opus to be picked up and signed out on the sign out form from the Zack gallery beginning January 15th. These versatile panels can be used with almost any medium: oil, acrylic, watercolour, pastel, encaustic, photography and new media. The artists are asked to do an artwork on the theme of Israeli music as mentioned above, however, the theme can be loosely interpreted.

The artists are asked to return the finished panels, wired and ready to hang a week before the opening of the show by Tuesday, May 8th. The artists name and the title of the piece should be on the back of the panel.

There will be an opening for the exhibition the evening of May 15th from 7 to 9pm and the artists will have the pleasure of inviting their friends and family to this event.

From opening night for 10 days, each piece will have a silent auction sheet attached with opening bids of $ 70.00.

100% of the proceeds will go to the gallery. The artist will receive a tax receipt for the selling amount. For those peices that do not recieve bids, we ask that the artist retrieves them after the show.

Your participation in this show is encouraged and appreciated.

Thank you, Linda Lando, Zack Gallery Director
