Call for Submission - Hideaways
News of a third party exhibition that may interest some of our members. This is not a York Art Society event so any members interested in participating should contact the organisers directly.
Katherine April is an artist based in York, UK. Her upcoming exhibition explores the notion of hideaways - of our dependence on shelter and the way in which we seek and long for it but so often wish to flee from it towards nature.
The exhibition, entitled 'Breathing into Bloom', will consist of three walls of Katherine's work - but she would like to display others' depictions of shelter on the fourth wall.
Please send a digital image that represents your own experience of a hideaway to Katherine. This might consist of a self-portrait, landscape, interior view, or something entirely different. The donated images will be printed by Katherine in postcard form and be dispersed as a group across the vacant wall.
The postcard images will be on sale, priced at £10 each - all proceeds from these pieces will go to the charity Parkinson's UK.
If selected, your work will feature within the exhibition at White Room, York during April 2015.
These pieces will be seen by a broad audience and your name will appear within set exhibition materials. The exhibition will be well documented and we will send photographs to those who are not able to attend in person.
Original work only please - large Jpeg files via email are preferable. Please attach an artist statement and brief description of the work if possible.
Please address all enquiries and submissions to Katherine: firstname.lastname@example.org

Deadline for entries: 18th March 2015.
