Papergirl Vancouver invites artists of all ages, creative backgrounds, and abilities to submit their work. Participants will connect with their community and become part of a larger global Papergirl movement. Their artwork will be featured in a non-juried, uncurated public exhibition at the Roundhouse Community Centre from July 8 to July 11, 2014. Artwork will then be taken down, rolled up, and gifted to the unsuspecting public by volunteer cyclists, on July 19.
Artwork submissions can be dropped off in person or mailed to the Roundhouse Community Centre by June 26, 2014. Please visit our website for more details and to complete a submission form: www.papergirlvancouver.com.
Looking for another creative outlet? On May 27 and May 29, 2014, Papergirl Vancouver and local multidisciplinary artist Phyllis Schwartz will be presenting a two-part lumen-printmaking workshop, “Photography without Cameras.” Schwartz explains, “In this hands-on workshop, participants will make photograms of plant materials, and discover how plant materials leave marks and traces on photosensitive paper; the work will look like colourful x-rays.” Tickets are available for $21 (includes all supplies, materials, and 3 prints) and can be purchased at www.papergirlvancouver.com.
About Papergirl Vancouver
Papergirl Vancouver is an inclusive, non-commercial art project that brings people together in celebration of art and community in an unconventional way: through the spirit of altruism. An idea that began in 2006 in Berlin has since spread worldwide. Papergirl projects are united by their purpose of redefining street art; taking art out of the galleries and into the streets, in the style of the American paperboy; and building community through the gift of giving art.
We've attached our 2014 call for submissions poster for more information about our project, but please don’t hesitate to contact us for more details!
