Artist Book Call Out

Sticks Gallery/ Live Art Local CIC will be at Ferneham Hall on the 1st July for their volunteer and not for profit event.  There will be over 70 other stalls and organisations plus entertainment and hundreds of people are expected.  We will be telling everyone about what we do and celebrating arts and diversity.  We only had only space on this confirmed very recently and so this is a last minute opportunity.

 

As we are always looking at ways to celebrate artists and help them promote their work we have decided to use our space at this large event to promote artists as well as the work of the organisation.  With this in mind, we will be devoting a part of our area to artists’ publications.  This can be dummy books, printed publications, handstitched books, one-offs or those with a larger print off: it is up to you.

Books can be sold on the day and the artist will be able to retain 85% of the sale price of the book.

Can interested artists please email beth@sticksgallery.co.uk with the name of your publication, a bit about the theme of your publications, price and at least 3 images of the work contained in the book.   Selected artists will then be given an address to send your books to; or if appropriate a time to drop the book(s) off on the day.

 

The deadline for expression of interest is 26th June.  We will contact all artists the day they contact us

Artists’ Union England Event Tonight

Our Chief Executive will be speaking at Aspex Portsmouth this evening along with others about the value of the Artists’ Union England.  Although this is not our event we are run by artists and believe it is vitally important that artists’ views are heard and that we work towards artists having the same rights and expectations as other workers.

 

Please see the information we were sent by AUE below:

“Join us between 5-7pm on 1st June at Aspex Portsmouth to find out more about Artists’ Union England and what it can offer you.

 

There will be a chance to hear from your local Union rep, a former member of the executive, and the wider Union movement about how joining your Union can give you a voice in securing more rights for artists as workers, and how together we can ensure Artists are no longer ignored by politicians and employers.

 

We are here for you and we are run by you, we want your views on what you want and need as artists to ensure you can work safely and effectively, but we can only do this with your support.

 

We want you to come together with other artists at this event and tell us what’s important to you, and ultimately, positively affect what the AUE fights for in your region.

 

This is your Union and we want you to be a part of it.  Join us and help to build Artists Union England, the organisation devoted to securing your rights, today and in the future!

 

Merchandise will be available with 100% of the price going back into the Union

 

5-7pm, 1st June, Aspex Portsmouth, The Vulcan Building, Gunwharf Quays, Portsmouth PO1 3BF
