CALL TO ARTISTS
The Northern Reflections Exhibition will showcase the work of local Calgarian artists on display during the winter months in the downtown core and surrounding areas. This call is to tradition paint medium artists, animation artists and graphic designers. Artists will be working together to transform a city window into a multi-media visual installation. The use of Augment Reality (AR) will allow the animation to be overlaid on top of a window painting or vinyl window covering. The two mediums will be superimposed to create the interactive piece. This year’s theme is ELECTRIC WINTER.

A select few artists will be short listed to participate in a free workshop on Saturday, September 15, 2018. At the workshop artists will receive lessons on painting on glass and learn about creating in AR. This free workshop is for you to learn more, hone your skills, and for us to get to know you. After the workshop we will let you know if you are accepted to participate in Northern Reflections. Your selection in the exhibition will be based partially upon your skills demonstrated at the workshop.
Windows will be painted or have vinyl installed from November 8th to 12th. Please check your schedule to make sure you can make yourself available for these dates, if painting. Unfortunately, you may not get to pick which of these dates works best for you to paint and it could be assigned to you.
Submission closes at noon on July 31, 2018. Participants will be notified by e-mail if they are short listed to participate in the exhibition on or before August 13, 2018. Short listed artists will be selected based on merit and fit.
Animation artist fee $500
Paint or vinyl artist fee $400 (paint artists receive an additional $60 stipend for supplies)
All participating artists are entered to win prize money; $4,000 in prize money will be awarded at the Northern Reflections Celebration held in January 2019 (date to be determined).
