REQUEST FOR EXPRESSIONS OF INTEREST:
Pop up Exhibition at The Colombo
3 August 2017
Expressions of interest are requested for new works on paper as part of a group exhibition at First Thursdays ChCh.
We encourage artists to respond to the title of the show and explore ideas of the whimsical, surreal, playful, absurd and psychedelic.
Selected artists will be provided with 1 A2 sheet of paper on which to work. The paper will need to be picked up from The Drawing Room art supply store at 500 Colombo St. If you are based outside Chch, please note this on your application.
All works must remain on the A2 paper and be suitable to be freely suspended. Works can be smaller than A2, but need to be on the original paper.
There will be a $10 administration fee per work for those in the exhibition to go towards the running costs of First Thursdays.
Please send good quality jpegs of 1 to 2 past works of relevance and your contact details to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Deadline for expressions of interest: Monday 5 July
Selection will be by Audrey Baldwin and Warren Feeney. All submissions will be considered and artists notified of their inclusion or otherwise 10 July. We look forward to receiving your submissions.
