And All That Jazz VII – Call for Entries

Our 7th annual “And All That Jazz Art & Photography Show” is now open for participant registration.

The show is open to all artists; not just painters and photographers. In the past, the show has included fabric artists, sculptors, and stained glass artists. The show is inclusive.

The 7th edition of the show will take place at a new venue in Port Hope: Art Emporium by the River, 11 Mill Street, Port Hope. The owner is Bill Edwards: founder of the Port Hope Jazz Festival. He also helped to relaunch Furby’s Books.

This is a fabulous opportunity for artists to show and sell their work on a busy main street in Port Hope for an entire month.

Note that sitting during the show is NOT required as The Art Emporium is fully staffed.

The launch dates of Friday, Sept. 8th (reception), Saturday, Sept. 9th and Sunday, Sept. 10th have been chosen to coincide with the Northumberland Hills Studio Tour that brings out-of-town visitors to the county. As well as the All Canadian Jazz Festival’s tribute to Ella Fitzgerald on Sunday, Sept. 10th at Victoria Hall in Cobourg.

Here is the schedule:
Tuesday, Sept. 5th: intake at the venue between 10 and 2
Friday, Sept. 8th: Opening reception from 5 to 7 pm.
Sept. 8th to Oct. 9th: show is open gallery hours. Including Sundays.
Tuesday, Oct. 10th: pick-up between 10 and 2

Two notes about costs associated with participation:

  1. There is a modest fee of $15 for one or two pieces of work to help defray costs associated with the reception and show promotion.
  2. The Art Emporium will take 40% commission on sales. So please price your work accordingly. Spirit of the Hills will NOT take a commission.

Please join us as SOTH celebrates the 7th edition of “All That Jazz Art & Photography Show”.

Rooted in Life by Laura Berman

Spirit of the Hills presents “Rooted in Life” The Photographic Art of Laura Berman

Show and Sale May 2nd to June 27th 2017 at Capers Restaurant
28 Bridge Street West
Campbellford, ON K0L 1L0
705-653-5262

“My work explores ways of seeing and interpreting the natural world through the intersection of photography and painting, creating images that mix painterly qualities with photographic realism. By digitally painting at the pixel level and adding rich textures, lighting and brush strokes to the overall image, I go beyond the photographic capture to create images that are strikingly different from the original capture.”
