Call for Artwork!
To celebrate the diverse talents and showcase the beauty of the community, the Chase & District Chamber of Commerce is planning to install a number of pieces by local artists and photographers around the exterior of the Chase Visitor Centre building.
Selected pieces will be installed along the top border of the Visitor Centre, and will remain installed year-round. A directory of artists will also be installed outside the building for guests to identify the artist’s name with their respective piece(s). In addition to having the work featured on the building and receiving a small honorarium, each of the selected artists will also be featured on the Visitor Centre & Chase Chamber’s website, and be invited to sell some of their work on commission at the Visitor Centre.
We would like to thank all the students who submitted applications and wish everyone the best of luck with their future studies.
