OPEN CALL for Art works
Deadline: 07 March 2017 at 11:00
As part of the 2017 South Side Fringe Festival, House for an Art Lover and Art on Scotland would like to invite submissions from artists based in the South Side of Glasgow (living or working) to take part in a group exhibition in our Studio Pavilion.
Due to activities that will take place in the Pavilion during the festival we are unable to take sculptural work, therefor all work must be wall based.
Artworks that will be included in the exhibition will be selected by representatives from House for an Art Lover, Art on Scotland and South Side Fringe.
• The closing date for submissions is Tuesday 7th March at 11am.
• Artists will be notified about the progress of their application by Monday 13th March.
• Artists will deliver artwork to the Studio Pavilion by Monday 8th May.
• Private view for artists and guests on Friday 12th May.
• Exhibition closes Saturday 27th May.
• Artists collect work on 28th May.
Artists will have the opportunity to sell their work as part of this exhibition (30% commission will be taken). Artists are responsible for framing (if required) and the delivery/collection of their work.
Depending on the size of the work, House for an Art Lover can store work for up to two weeks after the exhibition has finished if needed.
Information on the South Side Fringe can be found here:
Please submit up to four images of your work that you would like to be considered, the titles and dimensions of artworks, and a short statement about your practice, preferably as a pdf file.
Please ensure that supporting images do not exceed 1mb each. Any larger files can be sent via Dropbox or WeTransfer.
Graduate Curator in Residence
Applications are now open for a Graduate Curator in Residence for ART PARK at House for an Art Lover. This opportunity is supported by the Creative Scotland Open Fund.
In 2014 our Arts and Heritage Centre was launched within ART PARK Glasgow. Through this venture House for an Art Lover created a cultural public space with a Gallery, Heritage Centre, Artist Studios and Workshops. ART PARK has initiated and supported projects in the visual arts and continues to develop its artistic programme. To respond to an increasing number of Exhibitions, Artist’s Residencies and Educational Workshops, HAL has developed a three-year strategy in which all elements of ART PARK will contribute to a coherent and comprehensive arts programme - central to this plan are the ART-sheds. The ART-sheds will host experimental exhibitions and projects for emerging and established creative practitioners, that will include the fabrication of large-scale public artworks; provide studio spaces and opportunities for new graduates; exhibit ‘work-in-progress’; showcase community projects and festivals. The aim of the ART-sheds programme is to create a community of artists and provide opportunities for dialogue between those with different practices and at different stages in their careers.
We are now seeking applications for our Graduate Curator in Residence programme. Applications are welcome from those who have completed postgraduate courses such as Curatorial Practice, and Museum Studies since 2014.
The Curator in Residence will be based in the Studio Pavilion office and will curate an exhibition that will take place in the Project Space in June 2017.
The Curator in Residence will be supported by the Arts and Heritage Development Officer as well as members of House for an Art Lover’s Arts and Heritage Committee.
The residency will include:
- Support and mentoring
- A fee of £1,600 to cover the curator’s expenses and exhibition costs.
- Identifying and selecting an artist to exhibit in the Project Space.
- Research and preparation of the exhibition and its content (including working within a set budget)
- Organisation of an exhibition event, such as the opening evening and/or an artist’s talk as part of
HAL’s public engagement programme
- Preparation and production of marketing material
To apply please provide the following in 1 PDF file:
- Covering letter stating why you will benefit from this residency
- Images or web links showing exhibitions you have curated in the past OR research you have conducted (such as a section of a dissertation focusing on Curatorial Practice).
The deadline for applications is 5pm on Thursday 2nd March.
