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.

GRANT TO BRING HISTORY TO LIFE IN FAREHAM

Live Art Local CIC/ Sticks Gallery would love to let you all in on a little secret.

A few months ago we applied for some funding to run a series of workshops examining the history of Fareham borough with older, isolated people living in the borough; families with disabled children and adults with learning disabilities.  These workshops would culminate in an exhibition and the publication of a new heritage trail map for Fareham.

 

We are very pleased and excited to announce that on Friday we received confirmation that we had been successful in our grant application.  The workshops will run this summer and will be a chance for our chosen groups to get creative, make new friends, learn new skills, find out about Fareham's history and produce an exhibition and history trail they can feel proud of.

 

After publication the heritage trail will be available to buy and all monies from the sale of the map will be divided between Live Art Local CIC and charities/groups that help those groups working on the project.

 

We will be posting more information in due course
