Depot Summer Showcase Callout

We are inviting submissions of work for The Depot Artspace SUMMER SHOWCASE taking place in Small Dog Gallery, from 5 November, Guy Fawkes Day, and running through to 11 December. As a ‘buy and takeaway’ exhibition it promises to be a pre-Christmas cracker providing both exhibitors and visitors with an ever-changing vista of exhibiting and purchasing  opportunities. Once your work has sold it can be replaced by another of your pieces.

SUMMER SHOWCASE  also gives a  taste of what The Depot’s new initiative, The Art Room, has to offer. Opening in February 2017, The Art Room is a new retail salon-style gallery we anticipate will be a destination for visitors keen to discover and engage diverse new work. While eclectic and lively, The Art Room will be a curated space that ensures exhibited work is featured to its best advantage.

The Art Room offers artists the opportunity to exhibit from one to three works, available for immediate purchase, that will enable exhibitors to maintain a relationship with their previous purchasers, to build a relationship with new audiences, to gauge interest in a new theme they may be developing, and to have a profile and an outlet for sales apart from a full exhibition.

Anyone wishing to exhibit in the SUMMER SHOWCASE from  5 November to 11 December, is invited read the attached The Art Room Guidefill in theSummer Showcase Application Form and email or bring in to us.
