Artists wanted for exhibition

The Harley Gallery at Wekbeck is looking for entries to its first Harley Open Exhibition, from 7th January-5th February 2012.

The theme is ‘H is for’... entries could be a picture of rolling hillsides or cosy houseboats, or perhaps artwork in half-cross-stitch.

It could be a brand new piece made especially for the competition, or a treasured artwork that was made some time ago, a massive canvas or delicate miniature; the only requirement is that it can be hung on the wall.

Artwork for the exhibition will be selected by a judging panel - Shauna Richardson, the East Midlands 2012 Cultural Olympiad Artist; Abi Spinks, curator at Nottingham Contemporary; Keith Logan, owner of Gallery Top, and Sally Gatie, Gallery visitor.

Prizes up for grabs are: The Judges Prize £250 – sponsored by the Welbeck Estates Company, The Harley Prize £750 – sponsored by The Harley Foundation, The People’s Prize of £250 and goody bags for the judges favourite entries from the under 12s. Entry is £10 per person, for which three pieces can be entered. Entries from under 12s are free, and will be exhibited separately in a special children’s show.
