"Folk & Fairytale"
Artist & Maker Entries Invited  
 
Artist entries are invited for an upcoming themed exhibition at Obsidian Art - "Folk & Fairytale".

We're look for work in a Folk Art style OR work inspired by folklore or fairytale.

We're inviting entries in any media, including painting, drawing, printmaking, photography, textiles, glass, ceramics, wood, metal, jewellery, etc. 

If there is a short tale behind the piece please include details that could be printed to be exhibited alongside the work.

 

We want the exhibition to be diverse and exciting, with mediums and styles that are fresh for the gallery.

 

As ever we are also keen to ensure the exhibition shows a wide range of styles from traditional to contemporary.

 

We are always happy to discuss the suitability of work - so just give us a call or drop us an e-mail if you're in any doubt.


The entry deadline is April 14th.
 
(also available as a Word version - email to receive a copy).
 
As usual, there are no entry or hanging fees for this show. 
The gallery commission is 45% on sales of original art and 50% on sales of reproduction prints & cards.

All work must be for sale and the artist must be based in the UK.

ARTIST  IN  RESIDENCE  PROGRAMME  AT  THE GLASGOW SCHOOL OF ART

 

BA (hons) silversmithing and jewellery design at the Glasgow School of Art is pleased to announce its Artist in Residence (AIR) programme and invites interested individuals to apply directly to Anna Gordon, Head of Department.  

 

The residency position is in essence, space and facilities in exchange for a small teaching assistant input.  You would be given access to bench space and facilities within the School’s workshops for the duration of the residency, for which there would be no charge.

 

The position should be viewed as an opportunity for you to develop your own work and technical skills in a creative environment, without the constraints of set course work or timetable. It would also allow you to positively extend your CV.

 

TIMING

 

  • Workshop access is between 9.30am - 9:00pm, Monday - Thursday and until 5.00pm on a Friday

 

  • Session dates run from the middle of September to the end of June (confirmed dates will be supplied)

 

  • Artists in Residence would normally be expected to attend for a minimum of three days per week, for the full session

 

  • The residency will normally terminate at the end of session, unless by special arrangement with Head of Department

 

 

APPLICATION

 

If you would like to be considered for a place as Artist in Residence, please submit;

 

  • · A CV with images (no more than 10) of current work

 

  • · A short statement stating your academic strengths and how you would intend to develop your work during the residency

 

If successful, you will also be asked to supply an academic Reference of Support and if applicable, evidence of a valid visa. Overseas applicants are responsible for ensuring they have an independent visa in place to cover the academic year. The School cannot enter into any dialogue with the UK Border Agency in respect of visa applications. The Residency position is termed as ‘work experience’.

 

For further information regarding the AIR programme, please contact ANNA GORDON. a.gordon@gsa.ac.uk

 

 

Deadline date for applications: 17 May 2013
