DANCERS & PERFORMANCE ARTISTS

LIVE VISUAL ARTISTS & PAINTERS

Humboldt Green will be hosting the Annual Cannifest Community Choice Awards for Art On Canvas this year and is searching for twelve unique painters to participate in the competition. The artists will be provided with a theme and a canvas to paint on. Artists will create their paintings live at Cannifest in front of an audience of passerbys. If you are a local Visual Artist or Painter who can transform what you see from ordinary into extraordinary with a canvas and your choice medium, we would love for you to enter the Community Choice Awards for Art On Canvas.

If you are interested in participating as a Live Artist at Cannifest, please fill out the online Live Art Sign Up Form and submit six samples of your artwork for consideration to be one of the twelve chosen Live Artist Painters to participate in the competition.

You will need to bring your own art supplies and a drop cloth. Humboldt Green will provide the creative space and a blank canvas. Visual Artists will have from 11:00 am on Saturday, May 5th to 2:00 am the morning of Sunday, May 6th to complete their art piece. Cannifest attendees will have the opportunity to quietly observe the artists as they work, so you have to be okay with people watching you paint.

Three awards will be handed out at the Annual Cannifest Community Choice Awards. The winners will be announced on Sunday, May 6th.

All Visual Artists who enter the Live Art competition will receive:

  • A Ticket to Cannifest
  • Promotion in the printed program if entered by (date yet TBD).
  • A chance to win the Community Choice Award Prize

You are welcome to enter your finished art piece in the Silent Auction at Cannifest. Contact a Humboldt Green staff member for more information at (707) 443-3140.

Keep an eye on the Cannifest website and Facebook for an announcement about 2018’s theme. We’d love to check out your artwork and follow you on Instagram. Follow us at @Cannifest, and help spread the love by using the tags #Cannifest, #CannabisCommunity and #HumboldtGreen.

GLASS ARTISTS

Are you a local Glass Artist who can transform ordinary sand particles into beautiful pieces of functional art? If so, we would love for you to participate in the Annual Cannifest Community Choice Awards for Glass Art. We are looking for twelve of the best local glass blown pieces to be displayed both Saturday and Sunday at Cannifest. The deadline date to submit an art piece will be late April 2018 (date yet TBD).

If you’ve got skills, please complete the online Glass Art Sign Up Form and include six photo samples of artwork from your portfolio. The theme for Cannifest 2018 has not yet been announced. The suggested size for the artwork submitted would be under 15″ x 15″ in order to fit into a protective case. The functional piece does not have to be a pipe.

The winner will be chosen by Cannifest attendees and will be announced on Sunday, May 6th. The top community choice winner will be announced and have their photos taken for bragging rights. All glass art will be returned to the Glass Artist after the award ceremony. If you wish, you may enter your glass piece in the Silent Auction. Contact Humboldt Green staff for more information at (707) 443-3140.
