As well as general open call submissions that are unthemed, we are looking for submissions inspired by traditional painters and artists for a themed exhibition, "after atelier". We would love to see how young artists interpret works of the past in new mediums and methods.
  • We are open to several forms of art including painting, sculpture, photography, and film.
  • If you are selected, you will be encouraged to volunteer at the gallery.
  • There is no fee for wall space.
  • We don't display work of individuals older than the age of 25 or younger than the age 14.
  • Submissions may not include work from school (e.g. GCSE or A Levels).
  • ​Must be from or live in the UK.
  • The work must be your own and original.
  • If your artwork is accepted we have the right to post it on social media (with credit to the artist, of course).
The deadline for submissions for our winter exhibition is 3rd of February 12 noon.
The last date for drop off is the 3rd of March.
Exhibition commences 17th of March. 

The exhibition will end in late May.
