The Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo (RMWB) is asking local artists to submit their work for a chance to be featured in the next Art In Motion exhibit.
The upcoming exhibit will be the third installment in an ongoing series presented by McMurray Experience.
Submissions are being accepted until May 20th, after which 12 entries will be chosen to go on display from June 1st through August 31st.
Each three month exhibit is created under a different theme that artists can interpret however they see fit. The theme for the current call is A Celebration of Indigenous Artwork.
McMurray Experience collaborated with the First Nations and Metis Aboriginal Department at the RMWB to come up with the theme, described on the Municipality’s website as “a celebration of indigenous art that includes many divergent artistic practices that operate outside of established western canons of art and art history.”
Owing to the exhibit’s title, the chosen art pieces are displayed on a rotating device similar to a ferris wheel accompanied by biographical details for each artist.
“It’s kind of a unique way to display the art in our community,” said RMWB Events Coordinator, Christina Baker.
“It allows for people to share their work and share their inspiration of art and culture.”
Artists amateur, professional and everywhere in between are welcome to submit artwork for the exhibit and further details can be found at on the RMWB website.
