CALL FOR APPLICATIONS
Wexford Lions Club Exhibition 2015
Wexford Lions Club in partnership with Wexford Arts Centre, are delighted to announce application details for its annual exhibition and to invite submissions from local artists and anyone with an interest in art regardless of their level of skill or previous experience.
The annual Lions Club exhibition celebrates local talent and offers a platform for artists who are at various stages of their careers as well as those with an interest in art and who wish to see their work realised within a gallery context. For this reason, it is an important show within the Wexford Arts Centre’s programme. The Wexford Lions Club Open Exhibition will be on view in the lower and upper galleries of Wexford Arts Centre from Saturday 14th March until Saturday 4th April 2015.
Building on the success of last year’s exhibition and the remarkably high quality of work received, the theme for the 2015 exhibition has again been left entirely open. Participants can submit work on a variety of subjects ranging from land to sea, figure and fauna, rural beauty, urban narratives, pure imagination, total abstraction and everything else in between.
Also, this year we will again feature the Young Lions gallery, dedicated exclusively to the work of young, budding artists. We also wish to promote the talents of local sculptors and those working in three dimensional forms, requesting that these too participate so that we may produce an exhibition which truly encompasses the diverse nature of visual art and the array of talent found within Wexford and its surrounding areas.
Interested persons are asked to complete an application form and collect a cartridge/watercolour paper or canvas from Wexford Arts Centre. If artists are interested in submitting 3D works, they must also fill out an application form but should note that the work must be no larger than 35(w) x 35(l) x 50(h) cms. Taking into consideration the time needed to produce sculpture particularly when working with materials such as wood, metal and ceramics, we request that sculptors enter work produced over the past 3-5 months and only submit new works not previously shown in a gallery context.
Applications are limited to one per person and as the number of artists participating in the exhibition is limited, applications will be processed on a first come, first served basis. Application forms and canvases/boards are available now and the deadline for submission of completed work to Wexford Arts Centre is Friday 6th March 2015. Exhibition entry fee is €10.00 per applicant. All artworks must be submitted unframed on or before this date and on the paper/canvas provided by the arts centre.
Wexford Arts Centre & Wexford Lions Club would like to thank Spectrum Art Supply Shop for their ongoing and generous support of this exhibition.
