Call for submissions
An exhibition of Photography 'Journey'
Tuesday 16 January - Saturday 10 February
For our opening exhibition of 2018, the Upstairs Gallery would like to invite artists/photographers to explore the theme ‘Journey’ in photographic media. We are looking for contemporary and innovative interpretations of the theme, in either colour or black and white photography, and would also welcome video (we would need to discuss technical requirements for this).
Our criteria for selection includes: creative interpretation, artistic integrity and quality of execution. All work must be framed and presented to a professional standard. We will also consider how the work fits together as a whole with other submissions (both aesthetically and in terms of space/weight balance). Please download and read the terms and conditions of entry.
All work is expected to be offered for sale unless otherwise agreed.
Artists wishing to submit work are requested to email jpeg images of up to 3 works to the gallery email -: email@example.com (attn. Journey) by Thursday 4 January 2018. Artists will be informed of the gallery’s decision by Tuesday 9 January 2018.
Please title your jpeg images with your name followed by the title of the work. Please list the works you are submitting in the email with the medium, price (including the gallery commission of 24%) and size of each work. Please note that if your work is accepted, this information will be used for labelling the work for the exhibition. If you would like to make a short artists statement about the work, please do so.
A display fee of £10 per piece will be charged for pieces with largest dimension up to 50cms. There will be a charge of £15 for pieces with sizes over 50cms.
Delivery of accepted work to gallery: Monday 15 January, 10am - 12 midday
Exhibition opens: Tuesday 16 January
Exhibition closes: Saturday 10 February 2pm
Collection of work: Saturday 10 February 2pm - 3.30pm
Christmas Greetings from all the artists and the team at the Upstairs Gallery. We've got an exciting programme of exhibitions lined up to 2018 and look forward to seeing you!
A huge thank you to all our volunteers who help us in the Upstairs Gallery. It is thanks to you that the gallery has become such a well-established part of the Chilterns art scene over the last six years.
We'd also like to have our new project, the Open Door, open every day - but we need volunteers to help us to make this happen. If you enjoy meeting people and would like to be involved in this innovative community project and have a few hours to spare during the week please email firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone 01442 874740.
