Call for artists: Seasonal greeting cards
October 2, 2015
Artists in the South Okanagan who have captured a vibrant winter wonderland in Penticton are invited to submit their piece to adorn the City of Penticton’s annual “Season’s Greetings” cards.
A call for artists has been issued seeking artwork depicting the theme of “Vibrant Winter”, to reflect the community’s vision to be a “vibrant, innovative, adventurous waterfront City that focuses on sustainability, community and economic opportunity.”
“Penticton is truly a four-season destination. Having cards that reflect the beauty of our region in the winter is a great way to personalize seasonal greetings, and showcase our creative community,” said Mayor Andrew Jakubeit.
The City of Penticton sends “Season’s Greetings” cards each year in December to community organizations and stakeholders.

The call is open to artists living in the South Okanagan. Artwork must be two-dimensional, scalable to a maximum of 4-inch by 6-inch, and can be traditional or contemporary in style.
