Voting open for Beauty of the Peace art competition – EverythingGP

Published

“We’ve got our usual wall up we use for a new location and people are asked to choose their top three favourites by looking at our top submissions this year.”

Berg tells EverythingGP it is super easy to vote in the contest and adds everyone is welcome to cast a ballot.

“We greet people when they come in and explain how the contest works and past them a ballot and get them to fill it in,” he explained.

“All of the artwork is for sale too and we are off to a wonderful start. We’ve sold two (pictures) already and that’s always great for artists,” he explained. “Putting a letter beside somebody’s name is one thing, but investing in somebody’s artwork is a different level.”

Each ballot handed out in the competition gives the option to choose your top three art selections. The item you select for first place is awarded three points, second place is awarded two points and first place is given one point.

The top prize winner is awarded one year of gallery representation at the Grande Berg Gallery, one limited edition reproduction of their winning work, and promotion through Pattison Media related to the Beauty of the Peace.

Second place will get a $150 certificate for custom framing from the Grant Berg Galley while third place gets a $100 certificate.

Berg says the prizes give local artists a chance to have their artwork recognized, showcased and seen by many people in the Peace Region.

“Without exaggeration, we get approached by 400-500 artists a year from around the world wanting in the gallery. I only have so much wall space, so this allows me to find out what the Peace Country wants and what artists are developing well and we bring the artists on board.”

Berg adds some of the artists from this past competition have also gone on to do big things internationally.

“Emily Lozeron is one local one (2018 winner) and she is doing wonderful. She just had two recent articles down in the U.S. highlighting her work in magazines,” Berg explained.

“Daniel Sanchez is another terrific guy. He went on to become a tattoo artist in Vancouver and if I’m not mistaken he’s now moving to Boston to take his tattoo skills there. There are some success stories here.”

Berg encourages everyone to come down when they get a chance and support their local artists.
