2010 open opportunities for artists at Orleans House Gallery, Twickenham

Revolutions: cycling and art
7 –11 May 2010
Deadline for submissions Friday 23rd April 2010

Orleans House Gallery, Twickenham and Smarter Travel Richmond upon Thames are pleased to present local and national artists an opportunity to showcase their work once again, in group exhibitions.

Each year, over 500 individual artists exhibit work in a range of open exhibitions across three galleries – Orleans, Stables (Twickenham) and the Riverside (Richmond).

This exhibition will be held in the Octagon room, Orleans House Gallery, and focuses on art works inspired by the bicycle — from functional object to a canvas for good causes, personal expression and civic mindedness.

Up to five original works (prints, photos, paintings, objects, sculptures, film) will be considered.

– Artworks must be submitted as high resolution jpeg files on a CD, with accompanying A4 sized photographic prints or colour printouts. Please do not send original artwork as this will not be accepted.

– Please clearly label each submission with artist’s name, title of work, date, media, approximate size and price before commission if the work is for sale (the gallery adds 40% of the artist price for commission + VAT).

– In addition, please enclose contact details, an artist’s statement and CV.

– If you would like images returned, please enclose a stamped self-addressed envelope.

Successful artists will be contacted approximately two weeks after the deadline. Artwork needs to arrive at Orleans House Gallery on Thursday 6th May 10am-4pm.

Any queries, please email curator Mark De Novellis at m.denovellis@richmond.gov.uk
Or call 020 8831 6000.
