EVENT CANCELLED-21st Annual Encore Art Sale & Show
It’s going to be an amazing two days of fibre, stained glass, wood, metals, paintings, ceramics, photography, music and more! Visit the Lacombe Memorial Centre located at 5214 – 50th Ave in the heart of Lacombe’s historic downtown. As always, we’ll have live music, great appetizers, brews and wines. It’s a great two days for the entire family, and thanks to Vesta Energy’s partnership with us, admission is by donation to support the Lacombe Arts Endowment Fund.
Our Feature Artist is Margaret Blank, a textile artist from central Alberta whose use of fabric, thread, paint and other fibres creates stunning dimensional works. And as you can see, Marg has lots of fun! Marg will be speaking at 2pm each day and her topic will be:
“It’s Not a Hot Pad…or a Cushion Cover!”
• From knitting to embroidery to sewing (garments) to quilts;
• This is a quilt? (from bed quilts to…art quilts);
• studies and qualifications;
• SAQA (Studio Art Quilt Associates);
• early work;
• Core of the Matter:
• How I work now:
• Spirit pieces;
• Statement pieces:
• Political statements;
• Mark on the Body
The Artist’s Paint-off
It’s so much fun to watch artists in action! Starting at 7pm on Friday evening, you’ll be able to watch several of our artists as they create a painting from start to finish in an hour! Yes, just one hour! Once complete, the paintings will be put up for silent auction with the funds going to support the Lacombe Arts Endowment Fund.
Endowment Fund Presentations
Saturday at 4pm, join us as committee members and special supporters present the Student Art Awards to those whose works were selected during the student art competition. Four $250 awards, and four $100 awards will be presented: The Jan Holoboff Junior High School Art Award, The Charlie Donald Memorial High School Art Award, The Dustin Peers Memorial Drawing Award, and the Three Dimensional Art Award.
Awards will also be presented to those whose submissions for Arts Endowment Grants were selected by the Arts Endowment Committee in April of 2020.
Many thanks to our Partners – we couldn’t do this without your support!
