The goal of PARK and the Victoria Park BRZ is to create a walk of art that will attract new clients and grow culture in this vibrant and thriving
We are in discussions with Victoria Park businesses to each “sponsor” one artist for the month of September. Sponsoring an artist will involve allowing 4-5 pieces of your art work to be displayed or hung in a particular business. Each business will also allot a small display area to leave a short artist statement and stack of business cards so that information about yourselves can be shared with the community.
The grand opening of this art walk will be held on September 11, 2011 during the Haultain and First Street Festival which offers entertainment, a fashion show and approximately 50 market style vendors.

Fabricated is a high fashion event focused on the presentation of fashion designers in an artistic and creative manner to a wide array of audiences. Fabricated creates a fresh take on the fashion show with a more interactive approach to bring the show back to the creators, the designers. Celebrating the dedication and inherent talent of each designer/artisan, FABRICATED strives to generate public interest in the arts, multiculturalism and inherent diversity in Calgary.
A unique feature of Fabricated is the trunk sale where each designer/artisan will be given the opportunity to not only showcase their work but also be given the opportunity to directly sell and promote their line. Another feature will be a key VIP hour to kick off the show with buyers and boutique owners invited to interact with designers/artisans participating in the trunk sale. It is a great opportunity to represent your brand.
Last season’s Fabricated was at the Theatre Junction Grande. We are in current negotiations about a venue for this season. Fall’s Fabricated will take place on Friday, September 9.
How much will it cost me? What’s included?
The cost to be a vendor at our show is $100. This includes a 6 ft table space, advertising, and participation in the VIP Gala. The benefits of being part of this event is media exposure, a spot on the fabricated blog about yourself and your product, and the chance to meet buyers/photographers during the VIP Gala, and a chance to showcase your product to Calgary’s fashion elite.
What is the expected attendance?
This last Fabricated tickets sold out at the Grand - there were 350 attendees. This year, depending on the venue, we expect 350+. Attendees include an influential audience of industry professionals and fashion conscious consumers.
What else should I know as a vendor?
*The event will take place on Friday, September 9th. Setup will be in the afternoon of the 9th.
*Please bring some lighting to brighten up your space. It can be quite dark without lamps, etc. and it will help showcase your work.
*The Trunk Sale will start with the VIP Gala. Doors open to general public at approximately 7:30
*At the VIP Gala there will 100 people in attendance, and 100 grab bags. We ask that you include something – a business card or postcard would be great – to help advertise yourself to the VIPs.
*Vendors are expected to provide their own floats. Make sure you have a lot of change, because we will not be able to provide any additional change during the event. If you have your own Visa/Mastercard, we encourage you to bring it with you. It is unsure at the moment if we will have an ATM present or not.
Our facebook group :https://www.facebook.com/getfabricated
Interested vendors must send 5 images of the work you would like to sell/show at Fabricated, as well as a brief description of what you do, and a curriculum vitae.
Submissions will be accepted until 4:30 pm, July 31.
Please e-mail applications to :
Jennea Frischke at email@example.com
- You will be notified by July 27 by e-mail if you have been accepted. Please note that not all applicants will be selected as we must provide the best range of vendors as possible.
- Once you are notified if you are part of Fabricated, you will have until August 5 to get your registration forms and fees in. The fee will be non-refundable if for unforeseen reasons you are able to participate in the event.
If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact Jennea. (403) 993-1118 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
We are looking for unique, locally handmade accessories designers to be part of the Trunk Sale for this season’s Fabricated.

CJSW is looking for artists to create a work of art for our radio art installation series in support of our 2011 Funding Drive. We’re asking artists to turn a radio into a workable piece of art. There are no limits on the artist’s ability to be creative with their design. All we ask is the radio be operational afterward so it is still possible to tune into CJSW 90.9 FM.
CJSW will provide a small project budget for interested artists.
If you’re interested in being one of our CJSW Radio Art! artists and/or have questions about the project please get in touch with Kat Lord at (403) 220-3902 or email@example.com.

This is an open invitation to exhibit at the central Art Gallery for Shambhala music festival in 2011. http://www.shambhalamusicfestival.com/
*DEADLINE FOR ENTRIES IS JUNE 19TH AT 6PM.
We will be focusing more on local (Regional), and Shambhala community art this year, though there will be some exceptions, so don’t let that discourage you from submitting.
To see what last year’s gallery looked like go here: http://youtu.be/MbPOFqUZ8uI
We have finally locked down a structure for the art gallery at Shambhala this year, and it is going to be the best yet! Part of the structure will be permanent, and overall will have more structural integrity than previous years. The main structure is a 40’ dome, and we will be building walls to hang art from.
The dome is enclosed to protect from weather and dust. It is in the central area as part of a new feature that we are calling BASScamp. “BASSCAMP is based on the idea of a central hub of social networking at the festival, a place to meet, socialize, learn, orientate, rendezvous and hangout in an awesome space in the downtown core. It is here where all things SHambaCOMMUNITY happen.”
We would like to gather a broader spectrum of art styles this year, so please don’t let your ideas of what you’ve seen there before hinder you from applying. We look forward to seeing all of your beautiful creations to share at this event. * You do not have to be attending the festival to have your art there*

The Gallery will be curated local artist Simon Haiduk.
