KATHY THIESSEN ART GALLERY

In recognition of her initiative and dedication to the arts, the Board of Directors named the Station gallery after its 25-year administrator, Kathy Thiessen. A core group of founding members began working with Thiessen in 1986 to make the dream of a community centre for the arts a reality.  Thiessen retired in 2010 and continues to enjoy supporting the Station Arts Centre through volunteering, attending concerts and special events.

 

 

CALL FOR ARTISTS

The Station Arts Centre is now accepting applications for The Red Chair Project: a Celebration of Community.

Deadline for applications is June 11, 2021.

APPLICATION FORM AVAILABLE HERE!

ABOUT THIS PROJECT:

The Red Chair Project was created as a way to bring people together safely through art creation, raise arts awareness and celebrate diversity in our area. It is intended to be representative of the communities we serve – through the artists we select and the subjects they paint. The goal is to give artists a chance to work, have fun and be challenged while engaging the community as a whole. This is to be an inclusive group portrait that will be exhibited in a variety of public spaces and online for all to enjoy. These portraits highlight unique individuals in our area and how they contribute to the richness of our collective community experience.

HOW THIS PROJECT WILL WORK:

The Station Arts will contract a total of 10 local artists to paint portraits of sitters from this community in a live setting. Artists must complete three portraits within three, one-hour time slots. These portraits will become apart of a larger mural to be displayed as a whole or in clusters in public spaces in town and online during the month of September 2021.

Sound like a project you want to be involved in? Submit your application now!
