|Artists at Work
What's an arts festival without artists? In 2017, we return to our roots, providing an opportunity for festival visitors to experience art-making up close as you watch artists create in real time. This is also a chance for the public to engage in informal conversations about artistic processes.
ARTISTS AT WORK APPLICATIONS CLOSED!
We are excited to showcase "Artists at Work" in Didsbury during the Mountain View Arts Festival. Applications are now closed as our experienced selection committee has completed the application process, making certain each application received the respect and attention it deserved.
2017 Terms & Conditions
We suggest that artists:
- Have business cards and brochures available
- Have information about classes or workshops
- Display various pieces of art that show your process - start to finish
- OR display pictures that demonstrate your creative process
- Be able to answer questions regarding your art
- Explain how you use your tools and materials
