OPEN 2015 Brief:
We are looking for works that have a contemporary feel, which reflect current themes and concerns, as well as works that are produced using traditional subjects and methods. The theme is completely ‘Open’, however, all works must have been made within the last 12 months.
Quay Arts aims to select work that reflects the diversity of drawing, painting, print and sculpture within current artistic practices and to produce an exhibition that can be enjoyed by audiences from the South of England and across the UK.
One artist will be selected from Open 2015 for a solo exhibition in Quay Arts’ West Gallery for 2017. The solo exhibition will include curatorial input, mentoring, marketing and installation support.
