Lacemakers exhibition at the Stables Gallery, Orleans House Gallery


Exhibition runs from 30 October 2014 - end January 2015 Deadline for submissions: 10.00am Friday 5 September 2014 Submissions to: Lacemakers, Orleans House Gallery, Riverside, Twickenham, TW1 3DJ Through its annual open exhibition opportunities, Orleans House Gallery in Twickenham helps artists locally, nationally and internationally to showcase their work in group exhibitions across three gallery spaces: Orleans and Stables Galleries in Twickenham and the Riverside Gallery in Richmond. Lace is an openwork fabric, patterned with open holes in the work, made by either by hand or machine. Once considered stuffy and Victorian, lace has been revived and reinvented by fashion designers, craftspeople and artists. This contemporary open exhibition showcases this versatile medium. We are seeking examples of lace, work incorporating lace or work inspired by lace. Artists can submit up to 5 works. Artworks must be submitted as high resolution jpeg files on a CD (please do not include a case), with accompanying A4 sized photographic prints or good quality colour printouts. Original artwork or emailed submissions will not be accepted. Please clearly label each submission with: artist's name, title of work, date, media, approximate size and price before commission if the work is for sale (the gallery adds on 40% commission + 20% VAT on the 40% commission ). In addition, please enclose contact details (including email and postal address and contact telephone numbers), an artist's statement and CV. There is a £10.00 administration charge (which also contributes towards exhibition costs); £7.50 concessions (students, retired, unwaged, benefits etc). Please include proof.
