Sidney Fine Art Show Sponsor Program

SHOW SPONSORSHIP

This is the place to be.

The Sidney Fine Art Show is one of the largest juried art shows in British Columbia.  It is produced by the ArtSea Community Arts Council of the Saanich Peninsula every October at the Mary Winspear Centre in Sidney, B.C.

We have the profile.

This 3-day event has grown steadily for 16 years.  We offer our Sponsors advertising in the Show catalogue that will reach over 3,000 visitors from Greater Victoria, southern Vancouver Island and the Gulf Islands.  Your company logo and business name will appear on the Show’s promotional material, reaching a potential area market of 250,000.

We have community spirit.

The show is organized and managed entirely by volunteers which streamlines the cost of producing a show of this calibre.  Net funds raised support arts programs for the communities of the Saanich Peninsula.

We have the best art.

Over 1,200 pieces of art come in for adjudication.  Our Jurors will select close to 400 pieces for the show including paintings, sculpture, fibre arts and photography.  It is always a diverse selection guaranteed to intrigue the viewer and stimulate discussion.  Word has spread amongst our visitors that this is THE show to see.

We’d like you to join us.

Our sponsors are the reason for our growth and continued success.  The more we grow, the more your business can benefit.  Your support makes all the difference.
