VISUAL ARTISTS! Arts Scene Cover Art – Summer 2019

Make your mark on the new Arts Scene!

Previous issues of Arts Scene have all featured cover art created by a local artist, and we want your work to be next!
All Arts Whistler Members can submit their piece for consideration for the upcoming spring edition of Arts Scene, but hurry – the deadline to submit is April 1, 2019!
The chosen artist will be given an honorarium, an Artist Conversations feature on our blog, and the chance to see their art all over the Sea to Sky for a whole season.
Don’t have anything to submit right now, but still interested in being featured in a future Art Scene issue? Keep us in mind as you create over the next season – the following date to submit will be August 1, 2019.

If you have any events, workshops, gallery openings, festivals, live music, etc. between May 1 – August 31, 2019 that you would like included in the new publication, please visit the calendar, click “Post Your Event” and fill out the online form by end of day April 1, 2019.

Have questions about submitting your events or cover art?
We’ve got answers:

  • What’s the deadline?:
    April 1 is the hard deadline to submit your events to be included in the print magazine, but events can be added to our website anytime and will be included in regular outreach marketing.
  • How do I give you my events?
    Easy! Follow this link, click the orange “Post Your Event” button, and fill out the online form.
  • How much does it cost?
    It’s FREE! Arts Whistler is a non-profit charity organization, we have a mandate to help support our local creatives and to help foster the arts in Whistler.
  • Why should I participate?
    Our printed Arts Scenes are distributed around Whistler and throughout the Sea to Sky. Your events will also be promoted on our website, in our newsletters, on our social media channels, and in printed marketing collateral throughout the season.
    (Take a look at our current and past editions).
  • I’m not sure if you want my event? 
    We promote everything arts, culture, and heritage throughout the Sea to Sky – that’s from Bowen Island all the way up to Mt. Currie. If you have any events, including workshops, gallery openings, festivals, live music, films, artist calls for entry, kids workshops….. between January 1 – April 30, 2019 we’d love to hear about them! 
    Still not sure about your event? Shoot us an email, we’re happy to help.
  • What about the maps?
    My art is hanging in a local shop, can I add it to your listings?

    YES! We love to showcase local artists and the businesses that feature them. Our Culture Maps are listed in every edition of Arts Scene and include the We Heart Local Art venues and artists. Following on the years of ArtWalk success,
    We Heart Local Art enables businesses to directly connect with local artists to display artwork on their walls. Think of it as an online dating service…but for art! Find out more.
  • Can I purchase an ad in Arts Scene?
    We want to keep the publication chock full of events and listings and not fill it up with advertising. We have a very limited amount of ad spaces reserved for our premier sponsors and have room for a couple of purchased ads. If you’re interested in purchasing an ad, please email esuckling@artswhistler.com for details.
  • I still have questions…
    If you have any questions about what we do at Arts Whistler, questions about Arts Scene, or how to get involved in the local creative scene – get in touch! markeing@artswhistler.com

Thank you American Friends of Whistler for sponsoring our yearly Arts Scene publication and supporting Arts Whistler’s creative community – we all thank you!
We’ve done some amazing work elevating our local arts scene over the past few years, and the reaction to our Arts Scene has really shown us that together we can do such amazing things!
We are gearing up for our 10th edition, and the incredible support we’ve received from American Friends of Whistler allows us to continue to produce it free of charge to our community artists, creatives, and community partners.
