Call for Submissions: RedDot Members Show & Sale at the Alternator!

For 2014, this exhibition will take the form of a show and sale fundraiser, allowing the public to take home or gift a unique piece of the Okanagan’s creative talent while supporting local artists and the Alternator. With affordability in mind, we ask that artists submit works priced between $25 - $250. 25% of funds raised (commission) will go back to the Alternator to support gallery operations for the upcoming year. This exhibition is un-juried, and there is no limit to the size or quantity of works that you can submit. Works sold will be removed from the gallery immediately, and replaced with a big red dot to indicate a sale – let’s fill the gallery with spots!

Great! How do I participate?...Read more
