2016 Upfront Open Exhibition, Upfront Gallery, Cumbria

Deadline: 12 midday, Thursday 31 December.

The Upfront Open Exhibition for 2016 welcomes entries from all artists. The purpose of the show is to exhibit a wealth and wide cross section of artistic talent. The panel of judges choose an eclectic mix of work in various media and styles, both 2D and 3D. The exhibition displays around 100 selected works in our various gallery spaces.

The “Open Exhibition” is totally self-funded. Entry fees create a budget to stage and advertise the exhibition, to hold a preview evening and to award cash prizes.

There will be a First Prize of £1,000 plus other cash prize categories to be decided by the judges, according to the number of entries and the cross section of work submitted.

Artists are invited to submit up to 3 pieces of work. The on-line entry form below must be submitted. An entry fee of £25 must be paid at the same time by following the PayPal link (which will also have the choice to pay by card if you do not have a PayPal account). Any other form of payment must be discussed with the gallery. All work submitted must be available for sale and have been produced during 2014 & 2015. The selling price must be set to include the Gallery commission, which is 40% of the selling price.
