A selling exhibition in the Patchings Galleries. No selection process, no commission charged and all work submitted to be exhibited allowing others to enjoy your creativity.
We invite artists and photographers to take part in our annual open exhibition by producing an A5 size piece of work on a specially prepared board.
For the painter, the surface creates a versatile support for your painting with alternative surfaces available depending on your choice of media. For the photographer, you are asked to provide your image digitally allowing us to print and mount your image on to board for display.
All works submitted will be exhibited un-framed. Visitors are able to purchase off the wall during the exhibition. The exhibition in the Patchings Galleries opens on 5 December showing until 24 December. Do join us onSaturday 5th December at 11am for the Preview.
A small handling charge is made to cover the A5 board preparation, administration and hanging the exhibition. A reminder – No commission is added to your selling price.
All work will be entered into a prize draw for papers specific to your medium. There will be a prize awarded for work chosen by a guest Professional Artist (£40 Framing Voucher), and for a favourite entry selected by the Patchings Team (£25 Café Patchings Voucher).
