Public Sculpture Exhibition (Penticton, BC) – Call For Artists

The City of Penticton, BC, Canada announces a call for artists for their Public Sculpture Exhibition. Created in 2016, Penticton’s Public Sculpture Exhibition (PPSE) is a year-long outdoor exhibit of original sculptures. The sculptures are owned by the artists and leased by the City of Penticton. The city is looking for up to six (6) sculptures to be located along the Okanagan Lake waterfront or downtown and one (1) larger feature sculpture for the Front Street roundabout.

Deadline: 6 Dec 2020

The Penticton 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, that influences how people see and connect within their communities, and provides an opportunity for dialogue between friends and strangers alike. 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.

The exhibition 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 and photo examples of previous work must be included.

Lakefront/downtown sculptures are required to remain on site for the duration of one year (May 2021 -April 2022). The roundabout sculpture may be negotiated into a two year term (May 2021- April 2023).

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 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. The artist is responsible to uphold all terms and conditions of the agreement as set out by the City.

City staff and/or City contractors 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, 2021, and removal in April, 2022. 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 $4,000 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.

With Penticton 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 also 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.

Gallery Without Walls (Lake Oswego, OR) – Call For Artists

The Arts Council of Lake Oswego (ACLO) is pleased to invite artist submissions of up to three works of art per artist for outdoor public display in Lake Oswego’s nationally recognized, award-winning outdoor Gallery Without Walls exhibit. In its twenty first year, this program’s mission is to integrate art into the daily lives of local residents and visitors by presenting works from artists that resonate with people of diverse backgrounds. Public Art in Lake Oswego fosters a sense of place for the City, it enriches built and natural environments, encourages economic development, promotes sustainability, and provides opportunities for exploration, discovery, and delight.

Click here for the application / registration

Deadline: 23 Nov 2020

Artists can submit completed works and proposals for new works to be completed by installation in August of 2021. Artwork will be on display throughout the downtown business district for a two-year exhibition period starting in the summer of 2021 and ending in the summer of 2023. Submissions will be evaluated by a Selection Committee based upon the overall quality and merit of the submitted art works. The Arts Council seeks works of a variety of media including sculpture, new media, projections, and murals. They encourage proposals that engage, educate, and inspire the community. Submissions of artwork that has been created within the last three years is highly encouraged.

Gallery Without Walls Program Goals

  • Display quality art work suitable for public display in a downtown, outdoor setting
  • Support artists in showing their work to new audience
  • Display art that contributes to the sense of pride in our community
  • Strengthen and sustain our nationally recognized GWW program

Logistics

Artworks are generally displayed on concrete plinths of varying sizes and locations. There are options (while limited) for earth mounting works in a park or green space as well as utilizing building facades for proposed murals, projections, or similar. A limited number of plinth locations have electrical capability. Selected artists will be notified of their anchoring/display method in May. Anchor methods are either anchor bolts or weld only depending on the assigned site location. The engineer typically requires 1/2″ Titen HD bolts that screw through the sculpture base. Bolts are provided by the Arts Council. Base plate holes must be drilled to 3/4″ to accommodate bolts.

Concrete pads range in size from 2 x 2′ – 7 x 7′ (4 – 49 square ft.). Weld only pads require weld-able tabs on the sculpture/sculpture base. If welding, ACLO will provide a welder and contractor on-site for installation and de-installation. The Arts Council’s provided contractor will install all works of art and artists (or an artist representative) are required to attend installation.

Upon installation and during the two-year exhibition period, the City will maintain liability insurance to cover any damages, should they occur. It is the artist’s responsibility to deliver and be present (or send a representative) for installation and de-installation of the work. Artwork cannot be shipped as there are no available vehicles, storage space, or staff for this purpose.
The Arts Council reserves the right to reject work that, upon delivery, differs from the original proposal, or does not meet standards of durability, safety and quality. Artists in the current 2020-2022 GWW exhibition are ineligible to apply and encouraged to apply next year

Gallery Without Walls Artist Benefits

Up to fifteen artists will be chosen by the Selection Committee to display in Lake Oswego, OR. Selected artists will be:

  • Awarded an honorarium of $1000

  • Invited to attend the annual Gallery Without Walls Celebration in September. (This is a community celebration premiering the new sculptures and recognizing artists and all who support this wonderful program.)

Selected artists will enter into a two-year contract with the City of Lake Oswego for the exhibition loan period. During the exhibition period, works will be available for sale with a 30% gallery fee, if sold, paid to the Arts Council. Sold artworks must remain on display for the contracted exhibition period.
