INFORMATION FOR ARTISTS

The exhibition was established by artists seeking to create an accessible and varied show, it achieves high visitor numbers and has an excellent reputation with consistently strong sales. The exhibition is non-profit making with free entry to visitors. For participating artists it is a friendly, professional and enjoyable event. Unlike most other art fairs this exhibition runs for over 9 full days.

The exhibition takes place in a secure, well lit venue, using specially designed panels. Each panel is 4 feet wide by 8 feet high. Sculptors will be allocated floor space approximately 6 feet X 6 feet. Artists are encouraged to be present at the exhibition when they can but as sales are handled centrally by members of the committee there is no need to be present at all times. The show has credit and debit card facilities. A very small percentage is taken to cover costs when the credit/debit card facility is used. Each artist will have an entry in the fully illustrated show guide and an allocated page on the website, which will feature their work together with contact details and links if desired, and will be on display for approximately one year.
