OBAN OPEN ART EXHIBITION | call for submissions Submission deadline: Tue 16 July between 12pm and 6pm Exhibition dates: Thu 18 July (preview) to Mon 22 July
Once again The Rockfield Centre is hosting a small exhibition of local artists' work and warmly invites you to submit your work for inclusion. Our aim is to share and celebrate the wide range of artistic creativity in our community, from any age of artist. Artists or makers brought up or currently living in Oban and Lorn are invited to submit their own original, quality artwork to this event. Space is limited but we will do our best to display all submissions.
Exhibits should fulfill the following criteria:
THEME: There is no specifc theme. Any subject matter may be considered.
MEDIA: We will consider any appropriate media and technique.
TECHNIQUE: This may include painting, drawing, printmaking, photography, textiles (eg. screenprinting, weaving, embroidery). We will also consider 3 dimensional work in any material eg. sculpture, metalwork, woodwork, jewellery etc. Please consider that this should include pieces of ʻapplied artʼ rather than mass produced items.
DIMENSIONS: As space is at a premium, your 2 dimensional work should fll a maximum space of approx. A1 (594 x 841 mm). Three dimensional works will be considered individually.
PRESENTATION: All 2D work should be presented framed (& glazed if required), ready to hang. Our new hanging system requires work to be wired, ready for attachment to hooks on reverse. All work should be clearly labeled using the submissions pro-forma. Each artist may submit up to 3 items.
SUBMISSION: All work for consideration may be delivered to The Rockfeld Centre hut on Tuesday 16 JULY between 12pm and 6pm. Each artwork should be ready for display. Submissions form must accompany submissions.
INSURANCE: While every care will be taken with artworks, The Rockfeld Centre cannot be held liable for any loss or damage of artworks.
DONATION: To help administer this exhibition, we kindly request that a £10 (per artist) donation should accompany each submission. This will help us to invest in additional display equipment and arty enterprises. If this stops you from participating, please get in touch.
SALES: If you wish to sell your work, the price should be clearly displayed on your submission form. No commission will be charged on sales.
COLLECTION: All artworks should be collected from Rockfeld huts on Monday 22nd July between 4pm and 6pm.
