Call for submissions
Summer Exhibition - ‘Summer in The City’

At the Upstairs Gallery this year we are inviting artists across all creative disciplines to explore the theme ‘Summer in the City’. We are particularly interested in contemporary and innovative interpretations and especially welcome 3D and 4D work, in addition to wall-hung painting, drawing, printmaking, mixed media, textiles. We are also looking for exhibitors for our display cabinets and shelves, suitable for smaller work, i.e. jewellery, ceramics etc. Artists wishing to submit work are requested to email jpeg images of up to 3 works, files named with artist and title of work, and to the gallery email firstname.lastname@example.org (attn. Summer in the City) by May 18th 2017. Artists will be informed of the gallery’s decision by May 22nd 2017
The Upstairs Gallery, in Berkhamsted, is supported by a charitable trust and aims to provide a showcase for Chiltern artists at an affordable cost. We are a non profit organisation and make yearly donations to the local charity DENS whose aim is to tackle homelessness and poverty in Dacorum.
Throughout the year the gallery has themed open submission exhibitions, solo/joint shows, and work by local community/education groups.
The Gallery is a volunteer-run organisation. If you are a budding artist, have an interest in art or just love the atmosphere within the gallery environment, we would love to hear from you. We can offer the opportunity to be part of a small, dedicated team of people running an exciting community arts gallery. We provide the opportunity to meet people, learn new skills and to be part of the arts vibe of the Chilterns.
If you'd like to join our happy team, please email us.
