Art Walk for Earth Day
The opening event for the Art Walk is April 22, to coincide with Earth Day.
We ask that artist submissions for the Art Walk relate somehow to the environment. This is open to interpretation and can take on many forms, from installations made with upcycled materials, to mixed media pieces, photography, paintings and even comic interpretations! We welcome you to be as creative as you like and share with us in your artist statement how your piece relates to the theme.
Pieces will be installed the week of April 17 and will be on display through June 30, 2023. Your piece will be on display during Earth Day and the return of Silver City Days after a three year absence.
Please fill out this form to be considered - including as much detail as possible will help us match you with an appropriate window space.
You do not have to create a new work to be considered. The deadline for applications is April 7, 2023.
**Open access to the Community Centre is no longer available**.
Call the office (250-364-1181) when you arrive at the red door “Gallery” entrance and our staff will let you in.
If you don’t have a cell phone, please use the main entrance to Selkirk on Helena street which is open from 9 AM to 3:30 PM, Monday - Friday.
