The Pentiction Sculpture Walk Exhibition is committed to serving the public by providing access to various mediums of public sculpture. It is well noted that public art slows down the pedestrian traffic, providing a positive impact on the enjoyment and mood of the general public, influences how people see and connect within their communities, and provides an opportunity for dialogue between friends and strangers. Through an annual revolving collection of sculptures, the City of Pentiction hopes to provide a freshness to public art that engages, connects, and provides its community with a sense of image and identity, as well as including artists as contributors to this cultural fabric.

General Information

  • PPSE is open to professional sculptors of all backgrounds.
  • Previously completed sculpture photos, or proposed designs can be submitted. For proposed designs, detailed drawings of the proposed sculpture must be included, as well as photo examples of previous work.
  • Lakefront/downtown sculptures are required to remain on site for the duration of one year (May 2023 – April 2024). The roundabout sculpture may be negotiated into a two-year term (May 2023-April 2025).
  • Artists will be responsible for transportation of their sculpture to and from site. Pedestals / pads will be provided by the PPSE.
  • Artists will retain the ownership of their sculpture and will be responsible for carrying comprehensive insurance to cover it in the event of theft or vandalism and public liability, or will sign an indemnification in favour of the City of Penticton for any liability claims against the City as a result of the existence or location of the sculpture within the City during the exhibition. The risk of loss or damage to the sculpture will always be borne by the artist, and the artist will be responsible to repair and or replace all or part of the sculpture in the event of loss or damage thereto during the exhibition.
  • The City will enter into a lease agreement with the Artist for the duration of the exhibition and the Artist is responsible to uphold all terms and conditions of the agreement as set out by the City.
  • City staff will perform the installation to ensure that the work is done in accordance with City standards, and to optimize the viewing of the sculpture.
  • Sculptures will be placed in predetermined locations at the discretion of the PPSE committee and City.
  • Artists are encouraged to be present for the installation of their sculpture(s) in May, 2023, and removal in April, 2024. In the event the artist cannot be present, they are required to provide, in writing, a representative to be present on their behalf.
  • At the end of the lease any sales/leases of sculptures will be conducted solely by the artist or their agent and will not involve the City.
  • The City will be responsible for media relations and publicity for the sculpture exhibition.
  • The artist will retain copyright for their sculpture and grant the City a license to take and distribute images of the sculptures. Any other likeness or models of the sculpture will not be created without the explicit permission of the artist.

Public Sculpture Exhibition Artist Benefits

Artists will be paid a set lease price of $2,000 for the waterfront/downtown sculptures and $3,000 for the roundabout sculpture. In addition to the lease amounts, prizes for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place ($500, $300, and $200 respectively) will be awarded. The sculptures are owned by the artists and leased by the City of Penticton.

With Pentiction being a year-round tourist destination in British Columbia’s heart of the Okanagan, chosen artists will benefit by receiving access to the general public for a period of one full year, for the waterfront or downtown sites, and a possible two-year period for the Front Street roundabout site. Throughout the lease period, artists gain access to further leasing or sales opportunities that may conclude at the end of the lease period. These further opportunities will be conducted solely by the artist and outside of the involvement of the City.

The city is located in the southern Okanagan Valley of British Columbia, which is easily accessed by major highways and airports.

Testimonials

“Our days were filled with biking, sight seeing, art and most importantly, the Kingsbrae Gardens. The gardens were a bottomless source of beauty and inspiration. It was greatly freeing to just be able to work without having to worry about the mundane realities of everyday life. I could ensconce myself in my studio space and just let things flow. In all, I completed 17 new pieces in 28 days, a personal record for me. Each Saturday we would open our studios to the public and another wonderful experience occurred, as I was able to meet people from all over the east coast of Canada and the United States. Some of them were people who just enjoyed art and were a pleasure to meet. Others were connoisseurs, people who collect beautiful works of art from around the world, and were sitting in my studio, looking at my work. Still others were artists themselves, and these were the visits I cherished the most, as they almost always had words of wisdom that I could apply to my work.” – Michaela Hoppe

“For me, KIRA started the inspiration for a quite significant shift in perspective. The KIRA residency experience can be profound. Inspirations come from trips to rocky beaches, time in the peaceful gardens, brilliant dinner conversations with amazing people, and inspiring life lessons learned from spending time with other artists. You will have days of full immersion in a lovely studio of your own, with great meals and beautiful private accommodations, plus wonderful things to see and do, right within walking distance. I could not have asked for anything more perfect! This is a world-class residency program, still quite new, already developing an amazing reputation. It is truly a unique opportunity.” – Susan Neilson

“This last month that began in a state of overwhelming bliss is ending in a comfortable state of contemplation and renewed sense of creativity. My adventure in St. Andrews may feel like it is over, but in fact it is just the beginning. My connection to this place lives on. We gathered each night for dinner promptly at 6pm. We ate, we laughed, we talked, I learned so much from these amazing people. I am a better person because of them and a better artist because of KIRA. It’s is such an amazing program for artists. I can not over emphasis this enough.” – Kristofer Parley

Deadline: 31 Oct 2021

Completed sculptures or proposed designs can be submitted. For proposed designs, examples of previous work must be included within the application.

Castlegar Sculpturewalk Awards

Each artist accepted to the program will receive an $1000 honorarium, payable upon installation of sculpture.

  • Voting for the People’s Choice award will take place from May-October

About Castlegar Sculpturewalk

Inspired by, and borne of, local artist Pat Field’s participation in the Sculpturewalk program of Sioux Falls, South Dakota, Castlegar Sculpturewalk began in 2010 with just ten sculptures. When Castlegar City Council learned of Sioux Falls’ downtown revitalization initiative tied to the cultural economy, they realized that they faced many of the same downtown revitalization issues and agreed to a trial project.

Incredibly, with community and basin support, and a dedicated group of volunteers, this cautious trial project grew beyond expectations into Castlegar becoming The Sculpture Capital of Canada™. Downtown Castlegar is now one of the few venues in Canada where artists have the opportunity to show and sell outdoor sculptural work, bringing international artists to the community, and supporting emerging local and regional talent.
