Dehiscence Entry

Dehiscence Open Call

After a year off due to our move to Gosport, the Sticks Open will return this year.  However, unlike in previous years, where it was known as the Fareham Open, from now on our open art competition and exhibition will be known as DEHISCENCE.

 

dehiscence - (biology) release of material by splitting open of an organ or tissue; the natural bursting open at maturity 

of a fruit or other reproductive body to release seeds or spores or the bursting open of a surgically closed wound

 

Artists working in any media (including, but not limited to print, painting, drawing, photography, traditional craft materials, sculpture, digital, film, and sound) are invited to submit up to three works responding to the theme in any way they wish, interpreting the title in a way that means something to them.
