Artist opportunities

Young Artists’ Exhibition 2019

Saturday 30th November – Saturday 14th December 2019, 11am – 3pm, Sunday by appointment [Closed Mondays]

Over the last many years Isabel de Pelet, the founder of Guggleton, has championed the cause of young, new and emerging artists by staging the Young Artists of the Year Show in association with the Blackmore Vale division of the Arts Society.

This year is no different and we would love to hear from you if you are under 35 and interested in the opportunity to exhibit in this group show. 

In the first instance simply fill out the contact form below; including your telephone number and a brief description of your work. An application form will then be sent to you. This, with CV & cheque for £25 made payable to Isabel de Pelet should be sent to the address at the bottom of the page by Monday 14th of October and marked Young Artist Entry.

Submission day is Tuesday 19th November 11am – 1.30pm. Up to 4 works may be entered but if you are unsure then bring up to 6 works and we will select.  Works should be marked on the reverse with your name, telephone number, and email, title of work, medium and selling price (commission is 30%).  This information should be duplicated on a card tied with cord that is secured to the back, long enough to hang over the front of the frame for cataloguing purposes.  Please label sculpture in the same way and make sure you arrive with the labels ready. Except for recent commissions all work must be for sale.   Two dimensional works should have drop eye rings or single screw D rings screwed into the back of the frame on each side.  Please cord your two dimensional work.

The age group is 35 years and under – with the Blackmore Vale Branch of The Arts Society most generously awarding prizes within the 25 years and under age group.

Purchases and Unsold work should be collected on Saturday 14th December between 3.15pm & 5pm or Sunday 15th December between 11am & 12noon unless alternative plans have been made with Isabel de Pelet or Deanne Tremlett.

The Exhibition opens on Saturday 30th November with the Private Views on Friday 29th November, 6pm-8pm & Saturday 30th, 12pm-4pm.  If you are participating it would be great to have you there.  Buyers love to meet the artists.

 

Alternatively, if you have a proposal, or would like Guggleton to consider your work for any other future exhibition, then please also use the contact form below.
