For Artists

ARTISTS SUBMISSION FORM CLICK HERE

We hope that past exhibitors will submit new work and we also encourage artists who are new to us, to consider exhibiting.  However as our popularity has grown, so to has the number of submissions we receive. This means that as our exhibition space is limited, we are unable to display all submitted items of work.  Space for 3D work is particularly limited.

We hope you'll understand  that our Selection Committee work hard to provide a balance between artists having the opportunity to display their work and choosing items they think will sell in order to help us raise funds for local charities.  This means they often have to make very difficult decisions.  For example if two very similar pieces are submitted, they will chose only one.  With regards to 3D items, because of the limited space their task is even tougher.

Please be aware that the Selection Committee's decision is final and they are unable to provide specific feedback to artists.

If your work isn't shown, we do hope that your disappointment won't stop you from submitting again.

If you are a new artist considering submitting work to us, we suggest you link on the links below to see past Art Exhibition Catalogues.  You'll be able to see the type of work we have previously exhibited and the asking prices.
