“Look into the Future” Kaleidoscope Community Drawing Project

Deadline for submissions: Thursday, May 21, 2020

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

Starting May 5, while supplies last:

Please email 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 website.

3. Send your photo to: 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!

Online Gallery: 17th Annual Regina Artist Trading Card Global ATC Exchange

Regina ATC is celebrating our 17th anniversary year with a global art exchange celebrating the themes of Craft and Kaleidoscope, inspired by the “Year of Craft” in 2020, and the theme for this 29th Cathedral Village Arts Festival . View the exhibition online, in this Facebook Album.

Artist Trading Cards are pocket-sized works of art no larger than 2.5 by 3.5 inches (64 by 89 mm). They were first developed by Swiss Artist m. vänçi stirneman in 1997, an idea growing out of Mail Art—artists contacting other artists directly, and swapping artwork, ideas, techniques, and inspiration. Calgary artist Don Mabie (a.k.a. Chuck Stake) brought the concept to Canada, and with stirneman, co-curated the “1st International Biennial of Artist Trading Cards“ in 2000. Artist Trading Card groups and sessions have since spread all over the world. The Regina Chapter has been making and trading cards since 2003.

“Make your Mark” Mural Wall

*NEW* Location

For the past 18 years, Josh Goff and the 11 Hooks crew have painted an original mural in our community.

To create this project, the artists volunteer their time and creative vision; materials are sponsored by the CVAF and community donors. This year’s mural is being developed in a *NEW* Location: 2815 – 13th Avenue at Rae Street, to bring more colour and art into our community. During painting, we ask that you maintain social distance with the artist for health and safety reasons.
