Solo Show Opportunity in Southsea

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.

South Central Front Cover Artwork

This is a great opportunity for any artist working in 2D media.  The Live Art Local CIC family is unleashing a new art and culture publication on the world based around the south central region and those making art and culture happen in it.  With a DIY aesthetic each issue will be an artefact in its own right and we seek to showcase the amazing talent that is out there in our area!

 

We are seeking an artist who lives or works within the region shown below to create the lead artwork for the inaugural edition of South Central due to launch on March 15th 2016

Artists can work in any 2D medium/media and work can be new or existing work.   We are especially keen to see work that has some relationship to the south central region, although this is not necessary.

To submit work is absolutely free, if you are not chosen for the front cover this time we may still be able to include your work.  Artists will be credited and a link to their website provided within the first 2 pages.

 

All you need to do is to fill out form below and upload the piece you would like featured.  Please save the file you are sending in the format “name – title-southcentral”.  We need to receive all works no later than the 15th February.  The successful artist will be notified no later than the 17th February.

As we are using the image you send us you need to make sure that the photo you send is well lit and at least 300dpi with dimensions no less than A5 size.  We can accept jpegs, eps, psd,ai, png, and pdf files
