CFCR 90.5, Saskatoon’s Community Radio Station, is doing the Artists for Alternative Radio Community Radio’s 10th Annual Art Auction and this is something I encourage all AKA members and beyond to consider submitting work for, as CFCR is a station committed to local coverage of the cultural scene in many ways and in many forms.

I’ve included information below, but you can contact Ricki Skoretz at CFCR at or by calling the station at 306-664-6678 to get the submission forms and find out everything you need to know to help the station with this important fundraiser.

Art Submission Guidelines

  • All artwork (other than installations/pottery/sculpture) must be framed. Contributions must be in a condition ready for sale.
  • All artwork must be labeled with the “Artist Name” and “Title of the Artwork”
  • Acceptance of art pieces will be at the discretion of the Art Auction Committee.
  • The contributing artist will receive up to 50% of the purchase price of the entry, with the rest going to Community Radio. The artist may choose to donate more than 50% of the sale to Community Radio.
  • The live auction will be limited to approximately 30 items. The final number will be determined by the auction committee.
  • The committee reserves the right to decide whether art work should be placed in the live or silent auction.
  • The deadline for submission of the registration form and the contributor’s autobiography is Friday, October 19th.
  • The deadline for dropping off your artwork is Friday, October 26th.
  • As of 2010 – According to Revenue Canada and our Accountants, CFCR must write the artist a cheque for the full amount (sale price) of the art and then the artist will write CFCR a cheque for the donated amount (at least 50% of the sale price). Following the auction, the artist will need to come down to CFCR to pick up the cheque and make the donation. The artist will sign a receipt indicating he/she received the cheque. The artist will also receive a tax receipt for the donation.
  • The Art Auction Committee reserves the right to amend or alter any of the above guidelines, should extraordinary situations arise.
