The Gabriola Arts Council in conjunction with the Gabriola Chamber of Commerce is excited to support LOVE LOCAL in the province wide Shop Local campaign by the BC Chamber. Through Chamber funding we are showing our support to local artists with an ART PUZZLE CHALLENGE.
What is an art puzzle challenge? Well, check out the PUZZLE CARD in the March 2nd Sounder and you’ll see there are six detail shots of artwork by local artists that you have to search out their titles by visiting theartsongabriola.ca. Below that is a wordsearch with 30 GAC and art related words. The clues are listed below. You can also download the puzzle card here to print and maybe while you’re here sign up for a membership! Membership is the key to receiving the infamous GAC Newsletter. A seriously arty adventure every two weeks, highlighting members, artists, community members, news, happenings and more. You’re really missing out if you aren’t reading the newsletter.
The challenge starts on March 2nd and entries must be received in the GAC mail slot at the Jack Pine Log Cabin (behind the Post Office) where we ask you to put your name, phone number and email on the back of the sheet before you deposit it, by Friday, March 11th at midnight (it is well lit, so you will have no problem finding the mail slot after dark). Upon validation of the entries…did you really find all 30 words?…we will enter all the correct entries into a random draw.
We will draw for 3 x $100 in Art Bucks prizes and a Grand Prize draw for $700 in Art Bucks.
What are Art Bucks? Art Bucks are valid tender at all participating studios on the island. Use theartsongabriola.ca to do some browsing and present the artist with your Art Bucks, they take it as cash, we reimburse them with actual cash. It is a win-win for everyone! So if you have your eye on a piece of art or know what you would buy if you won some Art Bucks, solve those puzzles! Together we cultivate the arts.
