Calling all Edmonton and area artists!

We have a very unique project at one of the homes we are constructing, and the homeowners are looking for some artistic flair to be added to an element of the home. The future home will be a one-of-a-kind suite that will be a rental property, and seen by many visitors from Edmonton and beyond looking for a unique place to stay in a popular mature neighbourhood in the heart of Edmonton.

We are looking for a local artist with the ability to create flat artwork on a large wood panel. It cannot be 3D, as it will need to be able to slide in and out of a pocket, so this must be a consideration of your artistic application. Anything flat or only slightly raised art would work for this special installation.

Some more information about us! Why art? We believe art doesn’t only live in a gallery. It also lives in our communities. The homes we build and renovate are designed and constructed by multiple creatives and artists. We see these homes as artisanal in many aspects.

We created #BuildingARTyeg 4 years ago with the goal of collaborating with the design and build community in Edmonton and area to collectively celebrate this philosophy, and look at all the artisanal homes beautifying and enriching our communities.

We have commissioned 14+ local or world-renowned artists over these last four years to support art and the artists behind their masterpieces. Additionally, we are multi-year supporters of local art festivals including Strathearn Art Walk, where we sponsor the event, and have even brought a Paw-casso Station where 300+ dogs and their owners got to create their own works of art to take home. It was sooooo paw-dorable!

Alair is committed to the ongoing support of local artists, and this is our way of bringing unique art into our projects, while supporting local artists financially and by introducing them to more people in our communities and beyond.
