LIGHT GARDEN: Call for Artists

2016 ARtist call slide

LIGHT GARDEN FESTIVAL

Friday, Sept 13 – Saturday, Sept 14
Dusk – 10:30 pm

This year’s Light Garden Festival is going to be wonderful!

Pentangle invites individual artists and small groups (families, groups of friends, etc.) from the community to participate in the fifth anniversary of this wonderful tradition.

We plan to line the footpaths of the Green with sculptures, all incorporating lights.

We encourage artists to be imaginative, using recycled materials as much as possible.

Set up will be Friday afternoon, September 13th. Take down will be Sunday, September 15 at 10:00 am.

Participants

Interested in participating? To register or for more information, please contact Alita Wilson at [email protected]. Space is limited. We hope you can join us in engaging the community art experience!

Now in our fifth year, we have expanded the size of the installation on the Green and look forward to a colorful, vibrant exhibit that captures the spirit of our community.

Parameters

Sculptures may be on any theme but must incorporate lights in some way. Lights should be outdoor safe, possibly Christmas lights, LED lights, candles in containers, or string lights used in gardens and patios. No spots or lights of large wattage that could pose a fire hazard are allowed. We encourage the use of recycled or repurposed materials.

Any size up to 10 feet x 10 feet x 10 feet is acceptable. Sculptures must be completely weatherproof….able to withstand rain and wind and still function, look good, and be safe for the public.

The community will once again vote for their favorite sculpture during the weekend and a People’s Choice Award will be presented on Saturday at 8:00 pm.

Dates and Deadlines

Spaces are limited and it is first come, first serve. Please let me know of your interest ASAP.

More information will be provided closer to the event but participants should be prepared to email a description of the sculpture, its approximate size and its title several weeks before the installation.

Set-up is Friday afternoon, Sept. 13th beginning at 2:00 pm. All works should be in place and ready to connect to electricity by 6:00 pm.

The Light Garden will be lit on the Friday and Saturday evenings from dusk until 10:30 pm.

Clean up takes place on Sunday morning, September 15, at 10:00 am.
