The Theatre Chipping Norton is offering the opportunity for two artists to win wall space in its Gallery this autumn. As part of a drive to support the work of the many hundreds of hugely talented local artists through difficult economic times, The Theatre is hoping to find and nuture new talent through its beautiful gallery space. The Theatre welcomes over 50,000 people through its doors every year including several hundred visitors during this year’s Artweeks. The Gallery space is used for serving interval drinks, workshops, meetings and for parties ensuring a wide range of people see the works on display.
The Theatre is asking artists to submit sample pictures and a brief description of their work and inspirations. The Theatre will then select two artists and work with them to create and market a joint selling exhibition for 7 weeks in September and October. All media will be considered though work must be 2D and able to be hung from the walls. The competition is open to all artists; professional, student and amateur, who would like to sell their work to the general public. The Theatre will support and help to market the exhibition in return for a small commission on any sales.
To enter send 5 images and your description to firstname.lastname@example.org or Gallery competition, The Theatre, 2 Spring Street, Chipping Norton OX7 5NL, Closing date: 30th July.
