Two Calls for Submissions at Skyeworks Gallery

15 Oct

 1. Life Drawing Exhibition 29 October – 10 November 2012

2. Winter Exhibition 12 November 2012 – 3 January 2013

Life Drawing Exhibition
Artists across Skye and LochalshSkyeworks will be holding an exhibition of life drawing/ painting by artists around Skye and Lochalsh. We welcome submissions no later than 23 October.

Work will be chosen on both artistic and commercial merit, and while precedence will be given to current work, this is also an opportunity to submit work which has not been previously seen.

These should be priced with the artist’s price, bearing in mind the gallery commission of 35% plus VAT. Work may be in any medium, though framed work is preferred for display as there is limited space for work on paper. Charcoal sketches on newsprint are excluded due to their delicate nature, unless they are suitably mounted and sealed.

Skyeworks would like to offer artists an opportunity to show work that is often created outside of their usual body of work. As it is a public gallery, work of contentious nature will not be accepted.

Winter Exhibition – Art as gifts

Preference to artists working in Skye and Lochalsh, but open to artists across the Highlands.

Skyeworks Christmas Exhibition is not themed – however size and price are set.

The format of the work should be 25 x25cm canvas. These will be provided by Skyeworks, however artists are welcome to use their own. The cost of submission is £5.00 per work, and a canvas is included in the cost, should it be required. Canvases may be pre-booked for collection by phone. No more than 5 works per artist will be accepted. Canvasses will be available after 23 October. Submissions should be delivered no later than 9 November. Please note that the submission fee does not guarantee exhibition, and will be refunded should work not be accepted. This small fee helps towards the cost of successfully promoting and advertising artists and the exhibition.

Artistic and commercial merit will both be considered when accepting work for exhibition.

The artist’s price per work is £60.00, with a wall price of £85.00.

All work submitted should be clearly labelled. Artist’s statements and information about the work should be provided, along with the artist’s price and contact details.

A Note to Artists…Skyeworks gallery on the Isle of Skye

Skyeworks hangs works by local artists year round. These may or may not be part of a named exhibition. They may be any size or medium. These works are kept at the gallery by arrangement and exhibited on a rotational basis.

If you have work created during 2012 that has not been exhibited elsewhere in Skye and Lochalsh, please give us a call if you would interested in exhibiting it at Skyeworks. Again there is no particular theme, however artwork will be chosen on both commercial and artistic merit relevant to Skyeworks.
