Did you know that the quality of your creativity increases with creative challenges from your peers? Let’s test that theory! In this September art show, Summerland Arts, in partnership with the Ryga Festival, are challenging artists and writers to inspire each other to create original works of art.

Writers and visual artists have been “matched” – writers received a piece of visual art to be inspired by, and artists received a piece of writing. Each is creating a new piece inspired by the art work or writing they were given.

The show will consist of 74 pieces, featuring both the original 37 inspiring submissions side by side with the new works of art and writing created from them. This final work will be displayed, with their pairs, and the creators will finally get to meet each other at a gala show opening August 23, and will be on display during the Ryga Arts Festival on Labour Day weekend.
