All selected artists will be informed before Saturday 5th November.
We are seeking submissions from artists who utilise a variety of printing techniques in their work for our next exhibition at Ethos Space in Fareham.

Artworks should be no bigger than 1.5m x 1m.
Artwork can be for sale but will be subject to a 20% commission including 5% merchant fees
There is no set theme, the only rule is that work must not cause "offence" due to the public facing nature of the venue.
For all other artists we ask for a £3 donation that will make a contribution to our ongoing work supporting artists and making the arts more accessible to all! Please click the "donate" button below.

The exhibition will take place between 14th November and 6th February. The Deadline for submitting works is 31st October, selected artists will be notified by 6th November and works should be delivered to Sticks Gallery on Saturday 12th November between 12-3pm.
This January we are launching a new opportunity in Sticks Gallery for up to 4 artists to use the space to create an exhibition in real time responding to the previous artists' work.
Is an exciting new project to see what happens when artists are asked to directly respond to the work of someone else and where there are no other rules or expectations.
During their week the selected artist's will be able to use the whole of the downstairs of Sticks Gallery as a studio in which to work, with the door open so that people may come in and observe the artist's as they create their responses and learn more about their work.
We want this to be used by artists as a testing ground and a way to explore ideas about play and what constitutes a work of art. We will provide various materials to the selected artists and supply each artist with £20 to purchase other materials as they deem fit. We are interested in what ways artists respond to a limited budget and working with other materials. We are particularly interested in artists who want to challenge themselves by working in a different medium to they are used to. Artists are also free to use our equipment in the showcasing of their work; this includes projectors, screens a PA system, blur ray player, etc and where necessary artists are free to bring in equipment and/or materials from home (e.g. if they are a photographer).
Four artists will be selected and each artist will have a week in which to create their work during our normal opening times (other times can be arranged via discussion), with each artist adding to the previous work created.
Response will form an ongoing curatorial project with each artist able to reshape the meaning of the exhibition and re-position the former artists' work.
Upon the conclusion of the last week the resulting exhibition will remain open until 18th February on our usual days.
The dates for the micro-residencies are:
Week 1: Jan 9th - 15th
Week 2: Jan 16th - 22nd
Week 3: Jan 23rd - 29th
Week 4: Jan 30th - 5th Feb
Artists interested in responding to this call out are asked to send a 100 word (maximum) response explaining why they're interested in this project and up to 5 examples of their work that they feel best reflects their practice to firstname.lastname@example.org. We welcome applications from artists working in all media, including visual, written and sound
This opportunity is free to enter
