Art Auction for ElderDog

I am reaching out to you today to tell you about our upcoming Art Auction for ElderDog. Due to the many restrictions around COVID-19, this year’s event will be online only. The event will be set up as a facebook auction and the platform will be very simple. The art will be uploaded as an album with details about the artist and the work and bids will be taken in the comment section of each photo. As you may know, ElderDog is a solely volunteer run charitable organization supporting aging dogs and aging people. Our work has become even more critical in this time of COVID-19 and the organization has been granted essential service status. For some seniors we have been their only contact with the outside world during this time of isolation, while adhering to all public health protocols and PPE requirements. This auction will be different than those in previous years in that all pieces will need to be a 100% donation to the event. We totally understand if this is not possible for you at this difficult time and we respect that you too may be struggling during this unprecedented shut down of most cultural events, limiting your ability to sell your work by traditional means. Your consideration is all we ask. If you are able to support this event with a donation, large or small,100% of the proceeds from the auction will be used in the continuing support of seniors and their canine companions through the work of ElderDog Canada. If you would like to be involved and are able to make a donation, your contribution would be so appreciated.

Please send any donation information to this email address, 

artforelderdog@gmail.com

and include the following details:

Further details will be shared as we approach the auction date. The auction will begin in early November and should you know someone who may wish to participate, don’t hesitate to share this email. All artists are welcome.

Announcing the launch of The Salt Spring National Art Prize 2021/22!


The official launch of SSNAP 2021/22

SSNAP is HAPPENING!

The Salt Spring National Art Prize was established in 2015 to recognize, showcase, and publicize the accomplishments of Canadian visual artists. As a biennial national art prize with over $30,000 in awards, we are committed to continuing our legacy and look toward mounting a live exhibition in September 2021.

Canadian citizens and permanent residents of Canada who are eighteen years of age and older as of January 1, 2020 are invited to submit their two-dimensional and three-dimensional work for consideration. The art prize will showcase approximately 50 finalists chosen by a national jury. An exhibition of the finalists’ work will take place in Sept/Oct 2021 at Mahon Hall on Salt Spring Island, B.C..

Because of the present Covid situation and its uncertainty, details of the exhibition events will be announced at a later date.

The call for submissions will open January 1, 2021!

Keep yourself informed about SSNAP 2021/22 by clicking the ‘Keep Me Informed’ button on our website www.saltspringartprize.ca


Our founding director Ronald T. Crawford states, “In this unprecedented time for visual artists across the country, we are excited and proud to move forward with SSNAP 2021/2022! Although the uncertainty of Covid protocols make scheduling the events difficult to finalize, we are committed to a live Finalist Exhibition showcasing some of the best in Canadian art!”

The intent of the Salt Spring National Art Prize (SSNAP) is to encourage Canadian artists whose artistry demonstrates originality, quality, integrity and creativity, resulting in significant work with a real visual impact and depth of meaning.

All artists’ submissions must be submitted by the artist themselves and their identity will be anonymous to the jury until the exhibition opens. Canadian citizens and permanent residents over the age of 18 are eligible to apply with the call for submissions opening January 1, 2021.

Press release:

The live event community was the first out of jobs, and by all indications will be the last back. Many people are facing choices between food and rent, or are facing evictions. Production personnel and artists, companies all across production and entertainment are fading to black.

On Tuesday, 22 September 2020, an hour after sundown, we are asking technicians, suppliers and venues across the country to light the night red – raising awareness for an industry that is still dark. This is a “red alert”, reminding Canadians that we are still here and ready to work, but to stop the spread of COVID-19, large events, conventions and concerts have been cancelled indefinitely. Campaigns in Germany (#nightoflight2020) and the UK (#LightItInRed) have been successful in raising the profile of an industry that has lost 80-95% of its business since March.

The live event community needs every jurisdiction in Canada to find the time and a red light. It does not need to be a giant show; it just needs to be a show of red.

Traditionally, theatres are dark on Monday, allowing everyone involved a day off. We will light the night RED on Tuesday, a night that would normally bring bright marquees and lit stages.

Your help is needed to shine a light on the tens of thousands of live event workers who are in the wings while theatres, convention halls and arenas remain dark. Venues, shops, homes (and gnomes!) awash with red. We would love to see YOU the workers lit up in red as well! Put your city’s twist on it.

We need our venues, shops, homes (and gnomes!) awash with red.

The arts and live event community support an amazing variety of industries and possess a remarkable collection of skills. By coming together on Sept 22nd it will showcase the magnificent scope of live events, and the people who create them.

Starting 28 August, there will be an interactive map at https://liveeventcommunity.org/redalert/ where you can showcase your installation. There will be an opportunity to give some love to your installation sponsor/supporter as well. An appropriate hashtag will allow us to push our cause to the top of the trending lists on 22 September. In the meantime, sign up for our newsletter to get information as soon as it’s available.

This is not a protest. We are reminding our communities and our government that we have been told to stand by for the health of our fellow Canadians and that we want to be ready to return to work once the danger has passed.

The arts and live event community would like to thank our various provincial and federal governments who have been supportive to this point with programs like CERB, CEWS, arts and heritage grants — but it’s not over. Our stages, conference rooms, event centres, and venues are still dark. We need continued support until the lights are back on for good.

We support an amazing variety of industries and possess a remarkable collection of skills. We are coming together to showcase the magnificent scope of live events, and the people who create them.

We need your help to shine a light on the tens of thousands of live event workers who are in the wings while theatres, convention halls and arenas remain dark.
