“Look into the Future” Kaleidoscope Community Drawing Project

Deadline for submissions: Tuesday May 12, 2020

*Do you need paper or markers? We can supply it!

Starting May 5, while supplies last:

Please email sarahtruszkowski77@gmail.com or text 306-540-4714 to arrange a time to pick up paper and markers that you can use and keep; Pick up from 2039 Robinson St.

The theme for this year’s art festival is Kaleidoscope. It’s about looking at the world through art. It’s about changing colours and beauty, and it’s about vision.

This project asks:

What do you imagine your future to be like? What do you see? What does your ideal world look like? What colours do you see? Are they bright? Green? Blue? Rainbows? Dark nights? Is your future geometric (like looking through a kaleidoscope)? Or open grassy plains? Are you in the city? With people? Or alone? Do you see people? Who? Where? What are they doing? Animals? Do you see food? Love? Kindness? Isolation? Use your imagination.

How to take part:

1. Draw a colourful vision of our future. Use the entire paper leaving very little paper left and lots of colour used. Markers or oil pastels on regular computer paper or 9 x 12 sketchbook paper is fine. Use what you have… but we can also supply materials*

2. Take a picture of yourself holding your art, (or just a picture of your art). We will post your photo on the website. SO: if your face is included, you will need to tell us that you give permission to the CVAF permission to post your photo on the website. Or, you can just take a photo of the art! We will make an online web-art gallery to share through the cvaf.ca website.

3. Send your photo to: sarahtruszkowski77@gmail.com in large JPG or TIF format.

4. In your email, tell us:

– The artist’s name, the title of the artwork, permission to show you and your work:

___I give permission to the Cathedral Village Arts Festival to display online and in social media, my artwork and/or my children’s artwork as submitted, as part of the CVAF 2020.

___ In submitting this work, I agree that the subject(s) of these photos have consented to the use of their image.

….and hang your drawing in a window to share!

The Yard Art Challenge

During these past few months, it’s clear that Regina and Cathedral have big heARTS. Let’s keep adding to the art and decorations in our community this spring, and we’ll make our windows, sidewalks and yards a kaleidoscope of hearts and art.

…& If you see something artful, take a photo!

Post your photo and tag us, or use: #CVAF2020

If you prefer, you can also email us at photos@cvaf.ca

Remember to let us know: your name, where you took the photo, and if there are people in the photo, whether they have agreed to have had their picture taken, and shown publicly.

Photo Festival: “Kaleidoscope!”

Deadline for submissions: Tuesday May 12, 2020

Cathedral Village Arts Festival and Art Gallery of Regina invite submissions of original photography celebrating our community.

This project asks:

Has something fun and inspiring caught your eye in our community this year? Or, do you have an amazing photo from a previous CVAF festival? Send us your “Kaleidoscope” images for an online photo festival!

FAQs:

– Can I enter photos I took with my phone?

Yes, absolutely. Images from any camera or photo device is great.

– Can I enter a photo that is not about the festival, or is an abstract pattern?

Yes! The “Kaleidoscope” theme is about colour and beauty—seeing patterns and, metaphorically, reflecting on change and diversity, celebrating the differences that come together to create our community. Life is beautiful, a journey filled with transformation and challenges. “Kaleidoscope” is about vision, reflecting on who we are, where we come from, and looking to the future with imagination and wisdom.
