Calling all artists, writers and photographers. We are currently seeking submissions for the next issue of South Central, the Art and Culture magazine for the south central region of England. South Central is printed quarterly and is available in our shop, by subscription and at stockists throughout the region. We are a small publication and at present cannot pay for contributions but all contributors get full credit, a link to their work and a free copy of the magazine.
We are particularly interested in publishing new writing, whether that be articles, essays, poetry or fiction.
Every issue we feature different artists from the south central region (Poole to Chichester, IOW to Newbury) and their work; if you would like us to feature you then please get in touch with examples of your work and we will contact you if successful. One artist will be chosen as the cover artwork.

This is an opportunity for an artist or collective working in any 2D media, including illustration and graphic design to have a solo exhibition at our Garbos space in Southsea.
This exhibition will run for a period of 2 months and is a chance to showcase your talent to a wider audience and to make art matter in the community.
Our Garbos Gallery space is situated in the heart of Southsea, inside the modern Garbos salon and yet separate from it. Sticks Gallery/Live Art Local CIC took over management of this space from Island City Art and before that Add Art, so it has a history of showcasing great emerging artists.
There is no theme and the only prerequisite is that work submitted is not offensive (graphic nudity, swear words, concerning religion, etc) and ready to be hung. This means that work must be framed (if required), with loops or D-Rings at the back and wire or cord connecting them (mirrorplates are not an option). The gallery wall uses a hanging system and no work is attached to the wall itself. Due to this box canvases also need to come with hanging wire. Works on paper can be hung without a frame with the use of clips that we can supply.
This space can accommodate between 1 large (2x2m) piece or numerous smaller pieces.
Our current exhibition in this space, Andrew De Bere’s “Painting with Light” has been very popular and half of the pieces have already sold. If you wish to see his work it is on display until our next exhibition in the space.
You can submit to this open call either as a guest with a one off donation of £3. We are a not for profit organisation and this money helps us to carry on our work and contributes to the exhibition costs. There is no other money involved. To submit work please pay your donation via paypal. Upon payment you will be redirected to a form where you will be asked to complete your details and upload up to 4 examples of your work.

This is a great opportunity for any artist working in 2D media.
