Lacombe puts out call for artists

Lacombe put out a call to artists for this year’s Encore Art Sale and new Makers Emporium to life.

This year the Makers Emporium was added.

The Encore Art Sale and The Makers Emporium runs April 24 – 25

This year’s Feature Artist for the Art Sale is Margaret Blank, an accomplished fibre artist from Central Alberta whose works were featured in several Alberta exhibitions.

Marg works with various threads, fibres, fabrics and paint to create dimensional works of art, and previously created a three-dimensional installation called Mark On the Body, which was created to show the harshness of life living with Type 1 Diabetes. 

Applications for artists to be part of the Art Sale or the Makers Emporium must be in by Feb. 28 at noon.

Please submit your application form to Encore Art Sale & Maker’s Emporium, City of Lacombe, 5432 – 56 Avenue, Lacombe, Alberta, T4L 1E9. For information call 403-782-1258 or 403-782-1266. E-mail: mmackenzie@lacombe.ca
