Have you been busy painting, sculpting or crafting and think you might be ready for a solo or a group show? Maybe you’ve got an idea for a workshop or a series of classes to share your experience with other artists.
The Collie Art Gallery is calling for artists and artisans interested in exhibiting and offering their work for sale. It is also looking to hold a number of workshops and programs throughout the year aimed at all levels of artists, from absolute beginners to experienced artists, from primary-school aged children right through adulthood.
The gallery will be a purpose-built A class gallery with a total 200m2 exhibition space, including a dedicated gallery space of 150m2. The 50m2 studio can be used as extended gallery space for larger exhibitions, or a dedicated exhibition space for smaller shows.
Your work will look its best, being showcased in a brand new, purpose-built gallery with top quality lighting and fixtures as well as operable walls to allow ultimate flexibility in your exhibition.
As well as having the opportunity to hold solo or group exhibitions, featured artists will be profiled on the gallery’s website and have the opportunity to sell work online.
There will also be plenty of opportunities for emerging artists to put their toes in the water, with ‘artist opportunity’ shows and a smaller exhibition space on offer for a weekend exhibition.
If you’re interested in taking advantage of opportunities at the new art gallery, the first step is to complete and submit the Artist Expression of Interest Form. Simply fill in the sections that apply to you and leave the rest.
The committee is busily putting together its first-year program ahead of the official opening early next year, so if you don’t want to miss out, get your expression of interest in as soon as possible.
