A group show combining contemporary paper craft, illustration and book art on the theme of ‘winter’.

Deadline to apply: EXTENDED midnight 3rd November 2017.

Quay Arts are seeking artists from across the Isle of Wight and beyond to take part in a group show over the 2017 winter period across its gallery spaces – the West Gallery, Clayden Gallery and Café.

If you’re an artist working in paper craft, illustration or book art and have new or existing ‘winter’ themed artworks that create a feeling of awe and wonderment, then we want to see it! The West Gallery boasts 72 linear metres of wall space, has high apex ceilings and flexible lighting, allowing for large 3D works to be installed to dramatic effect. The Clayden Gallery will be transformed into an area where people can participate and create their own winter themed creations and put on display. We’re also utilising the Café space for 2D selling works – making an affordable art space for people to buy works over the festive period. This is the perfect opportunity to be apart of an exciting group show, experiment in the gallery and sell work.

Submission fee:

£10 per artist. (Covers installation and overhead costs).

Different to our biennial Open Exhibitions, this exhibition has no limit on size*, number of works submitted, or age restriction.

Exhibition dates:

Café: Sat 2 Dec 2017 – Mon 8 Jan 2018

West Gallery & Clayden Gallery: Sat 9 Dec 2017 – Sat 3 Feb 2018

Preview Event: Sat 9 Dec 2 – 4pm, all welcome
