ARTISTS CHALLENGED TO CONSIDER FOOD PACKAGING
Exhibition to focus on #basinfood packaging art
Show us your food-packaging art! In collaboration with the West Kootenay Regional Arts Council, the Basin Food & Buyer Expo (FABx) is putting out a unique call to artists, who are invited to submit their original creations made of food packaging, exploring the theme of food packaging, or offering food packaging designs.
FABx is an annual food industry expo in the Columbia Basin; the 2023 event will be held November 3 and 4 in Creston. Food packaging is a contentious subject always on the minds of food producers, who need to navigate the world of food safety and freshness and find a balance between sustainability and impact. Exploring this theme through art will add creative context and a thought-provoking exhibition to this important industry event.
A cash prize of $1,000 (or more!) will be awarded to the people’s choice in each of these categories:
1) Art made with food packaging, or art that explores the theme or impact of food packaging.
2) Food-packaging design concepts: printed graphic designs or mock-ups of food or beverage packaging, real or imagined.
Any medium is welcome, and artists must be residents of the Basin.
Register as soon as you can through this brief form. (Final artwork is due October 30).
