Open Call | Exhibition Programme 2020 at Ards Arts Centre

Application deadline: Thursday 29 August, 11.59pm.

Ards and North Down Arts Service invites professional practicing artists (solo artists as well as group shows), recent graduates, arts organisations and community groups to apply to exhibit their artwork at Ards Arts Centre.

Ards Arts Centre has two galleries; The Georgian Gallery, and The Sunburst Gallery which host two exhibitions per month as part of their varied and vibrant arts programme. The Arts Centre hosts exhibitions by local, national, and international artists, as well as community initiatives and art organisations. Slots are available in both galleries throughout 2020.

Please note: There is no fee paid to selected artists to exhibit. Ards Arts Centre provides the exhibition venue, curatorial guidance, marketing and preview event free of charge. Installation can be covered by Ards Arts Centre if the artist requests in advance for work to be hung by their Works Department. The Artist/s is responsible for all travel/delivery arrangements and expenses and/or other related exhibition costs. Artists are required to hold their own Public and Products Liability Insurance. 10% commission will be charged on work sold during the exhibition. Artists are not required to invigilate the exhibition as this is covered by Ards Arts Centre.

Artists can apply through the online application form which can be found here:…

All proposals will be considered by Ards and North Down Visual Arts Sub-Panel to select successful applicants.
