Call To Emerging Artists aged 18-30!
Are you at the beginning of your artistic career and looking to explore what it is like exhibiting your work as part of a group of like-minded individuals?
Would you like to be a part of an Art Trail but don’t yet have your own studio to open to the public?
Have you just graduated from college, sixth form or University and are looking for some guidance?
This opportunity could be exactly what you’re looking for!
The Harleston & Waveney Art Trail are looking for creatives near the mid-Waveney Valley area* who are interested in exhibiting their work in a group space as part of the May 2019 Art Trail.
If you are aged 18 – 30** and looking into pursuing a career as an artist, this is a great opportunity to gain experience from peers and more experienced artists, as well as the general public. Whether you are a painter, sculptor, jeweller, printmaker, or any other creative, HWAT welcomes you to apply.
The exhibition will be held in Spring 2019 alongside the Art Trail for these two weekends:
Saturday 18th and Sunday 19th May; Saturday 25th, Sunday 26th and Bank Holiday Monday 27th May 2019.
You will need to be present throughout the exhibition and available in the week beginning 13th May to set up your work, then again on Tuesday 30th May to take your work down.
The exhibition venue is in the very centre of the trail, next to the Farmers Kitchen in Alburgh. It is also the home and studio of three artists, including ScribblyRoo who is running this scheme. She will be on hand to help and advise throughout the trail.
For further details and to apply, you can complete a HWAT18-30 application form online (link opens in new window) or download an application form (PDF, 400KB) and return by post. The closing date for completed application forms is Saturday 1st December 2018.
All questions and applications should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org
We look forward to receiving your application!
* The 18-30 group does not have a strict catchment area. If you live in South Norfolk or North Suffolk and can easily access the area between Harleston and Bungay then you are welcome to apply.
** This is not a strict policy. If you are over 30 but fit the other criteria then you are welcome to apply. Each application will be assessed on an individual basis.
Please note, however, if you would like to become a full member of HWAT, there is a specific catchment area. See How to Join HWAT for details on how to apply as a professional artist.
