From the Lewiston Council on the Arts:
Lewiston Council on the Arts regretfully announces the cancelation of this year’s summer events due to the COVID-19 pandemic. “Bug Fest,” the “Summer of ’69,” the “Blue Monday” concert series and the Lewiston Art Festival and KeyBank Chalkwalk Competition will return in 2021.
We will miss our audiences, welcoming artists from across the country and seeing Center Street filled with thousands of visitors.
Artists who were accepted into this year’s festival will have an opportunity to exhibit and sell their work on LCA Facebook page.
Everyone can be a chalk artist as we take this year’s KeyBank Chalk Walk Competition online and open it up as a virtual competition. People of all ages are encouraged to create a chalk masterpiece in their driveways or on the sidewalks of their neighborhood. There is no specific theme – we want to see what inspires you. Whatever it is, we invite you to put the chalk to pavement and bring your vision to life and send us a photo.
A substantial cash prize will be awarded to the winner. For more information or updates, check our website at www.artcouncil.org.
We want to extend our heartfelt gratitude to our sponsors for their unwavering support and flexibility: the Town of Lewiston, Village of Lewiston, Elderwood at Wheatfield, Modern Corporation, KeyBank, ASIWNY and the New York State Council on the Arts.
Kids can make art to brighten Red Deer seniors’ lodges – Red Deer Advocate
The Red Deer Public Library is calling on young artists to help brighten seniors’ lodges.
The library is calling for “mini-artists” to drop off their paper creations — whether it’s flowers, drawings, letters or cards — into bins outside two participating Red Deer seniors’ lodges this week.
They are Timberstone Mews (42 Timberstone Way) and Harmony Care (200 Inglewood Dr.).
Staff from the lodges will “proudly display the creations,” bringing joy to residents and staff.
They are also planning to make some social media posts featuring art that is on display at the lodges.
A virtual Art in the Garden festival is happening on the North Shore this weekend – North Shore News
The North Shore’s annual Art in the Garden event is gearing up to go digital this weekend.
The event has been re-imagined as a livestreamed art and music demonstration this Saturday and Sunday evening, while encouraging community members to share pictures of their own green spaces online.
Last month, North Van Arts made the decision to suspend the 21st annual Art in the Garden festival due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and the challenges of practising physical distancing during an event which melds visual arts with some of the North Shore’s most extraordinary gardens.
The decision was made to offer an online version of Art in the Garden in order to keep the spirt of the long-running festival intact, according to Nancy Cottingham Powell, executive director of North Van Arts.
“Art in the Garden is the longest running North Shore garden tour and we didn’t want to just cancel this event that inspires gardeners, artists and nature lovers,” stated Powell, in a press release.
As part of its new online event, for the month of May the arts and culture organization reached out to visual artists and musicians who had participated in past festivals and asked them to create short videos outlining their work, inspiration and methodology.
The six artist videos were released weekly on North Van Arts’ social media channels and website.
This weekend, local painters Nicola Morgan and Pierre Leichner are set to take over the organization’s Instagram account as they livestream the creation of original artwork over live music performed by North Shore musicians Ava Maria Safai and Paul Silveria.
Viewers can tune in on May 30 and 31 at 7 p.m. each night.
North Van Arts is also encouraging people on the North Shore to comment and share pictures of their gardens and green spaces this weekend, as well as their own nature-inspired art, by using the hashtag #ArtintheGarden.
“These extraordinary times have forced us to look at how we connect with our community. Art in the Garden Online is an opportunity for us to support our members and local artists in a unique way,” stated Powell.
