Platform Open Annual Art Exhibition 2016

Deadline: Friday 3 June 2016 5pm.

Platform Open Arts is an exhibition programme that works to enable emerging and established artists, based in the UK and internationally, the opportunity to form their own self expression across all media. Curating exhibitions, workshops and talks in non-conventional spaces, our aim is to focus on engaging ‘art, people and places’ by applying different approaches to how we value, view and participate with art.

Artists are invited to submit work from a wide range of media to include painting, drawing, photography, digital media, printmaking, textiles, ceramics, glass, sculpture and installation. The exhibition space is flexible enough to show film and projections as well as more conventional work.

A commission of 35% will be deducted by Platform Open Arts from the price paid for the work at the Exhibition, of which 30% will be donated to the Children’s Charity NSPCC for their important services and campaigns.
