Colourful banner submissions sought

Artists of all ages will begin work on colourful street banners this month at the Summerland Community Arts Centre.

Marie Bowyer works on a banner at the Summerland Community Arts Centre on Monday afternoon. The 10-year-old designed the scheme with a picture of her dog and herself in the mountains.

Artists of all ages will begin work on colourful street banners this month at the Summerland Community Arts Centre.

Banner submissions are being accepted at present and work will begin later this month.

The theme of the banners this year is “What will I do tomorrow?”

Banner chair Karan Bowyer said the majority of banners will be painted by children and teens, but adults are also welcome to participate.

Elizabeth Potter is the coordinator of the banner project. Betty Candale and Katrina Fricke are assisting with the work.

The banners will be on display around the downtown and on Lakeshore Drive in April.

Submission forms are available at the arts centre and online at Designs can also be drawn on a standard sheet of paper, folded in half lengthwise.

This is the 16th year Summerland has had the annual street banner project.

Bowyer said there are only a few blank canvasses left for potential artists, so now they are running on a first come, first serve basis.
