WHEN: Wednesday 8thth – Saturday 18th of November 2017
WHERE: Joondalup Art Gallery (JAG) 4/ 48 Central Walk, Joondalup 6027
OVERVIEW: The ‘Kaleidoscope Festival of Light’ will take place in Joondalup, one block away from the JAG, from Thursday 9th – Sunday 12th of November. This event draws thousands of visitors over its duration. We are hoping that many of these visitors will also visit the ‘INTERPLAY’ Sculpture Exhibition and provide very good exposure for both participating sculptors and the Joondalup Art Gallery venue.
Although the Festival is only on for four nights (5 – 9 pm) we are extending the exhibition to cover a two-week period from install to destall with day and night time viewing. The Twilight Markets will be on in Central Walk on Friday 17th November from 5 – 9 pm and we should get approximately 100 – 150 visitors through the gallery during this event.
‘Kaleidoscope’ have agreed to help with basic promotions.
12 sculptors will be selected to exhibit works that reflect innovative ideas’ where synchronicity between light, sculpture/ group of sculptures /installation and strong shadow effects have been considered. This ‘interplay’ will define the space.
Some of the windows in the gallery will be blacked out and extra lighting will be provided to strengthen lighting/ shadow effects.
Submissions: No wider than 1 meter but can be up to 3.5 meters high.
We are applying for a grant. If we do not succeed in getting the grant, sculptors will be asked to contribute $70.00 to the cost of the exhibition.
If we receive a grant sculptors will be asked to pay $30.00 per entry.
20 % commission is charged on sales and should be included in the selling price.
The gallery will be open 10 am – 2 pm Tuesday – Friday, and 5 – 9 pm Thursday 9th – Sunday 12th and Friday 17th November.
If we receive confirmation of grant application before 21st of June you will be informed.
