Open Show 2011 is Surface Gallery's annual international open submissions exhibition, this year taking place from 12th 30th July. Heading into its 9th successful year the exhibition aims to investigate diverse contemporary art practice, providing a platform for today's emerging and established artists.
Submissions are welcome from artists working within any medium and there is the opportunity to submit up to 3 individual artworks to be considered for selection.
Open Show 2011 is selected and curated by the Surface Gallery curatorial team and one winning artist will be selected by a panel of established Nottingham based artists and curators. The prize for the 2011 Open Show winner is a free solo exhibition at Surface Gallery in 2012 in collaboration with Surface Gallery.
For each individual artwork submitted there is an entry fee of £8.50
(e.g. 1 artwork submitted = £8.50, 2 = £17.00, 3 = £25.50)
