Together, Spring Fling Open Studios and Island Arts Centre are pleased to present an exhibition for artists and makers taking part in Spring Fling Open Studios in Dumfries and Galloway and those local to the exhibition space in Northern Ireland. This exhibition is open to all Spring Fling 2020 participants and artists and makers living and working in Northern Ireland.
They are looking for a range of work in various disciplines that will reflect the breadth of practice of Spring Fling participants and Island Arts exhibitors. Work submitted should focus on the theme Across the Sea: The North Channel. For this exhibition they can accept a maximum of 50 works. This will be taken into consideration when reviewing applications.
Work will be selected for the exhibition by both Upland and ISLAND Arts Centre will be based on the criteria below:
• How relevant submitted work is to the theme of the exhibition Across the Sea: The North Channel
• How the exhibition works as a whole (insuring a good mix of mediums, sizes and subject matter)
Please note: this is an unpaid opportunity.
The exhibition will look at the coastal connections and crossing between Scotland and Northern Ireland, areas linked by the North Channel. Participating artists and makers from both areas are asked to respond to this theme in any way they wish. As the theme is focused yet quite broad, we hope to receive a range of works that look at different interpretations of the theme.
Participants will be selected based on their proposed artworks and images of similar work and will be asked to submit either new work or work produced in the last 2 years.
