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.
In 2012, we have further opportunities for artists to submit artwork for an exhibition at the Riverside Gallery titled Picture This....
This exhibition, which ties in with the popular Richmond upon Thames Literature Festival in November, celebrates contemporary book illustration for children. We are seeking original artwork or prints from UK-based illustrators in a range of media and styles from the vibrant, colourful and cartoon-like to the dark and surreal.
Artists can submit up to 5 works. Artworks must be submitted as high resolution jpeg files on a CD (no case), with accompanying A4 sized photographic prints or 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 + VAT on total).
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. Please make cheques payable to ‘L.B.R.U.T’. You can also pay by credit / debit card by calling the gallery on 020 8831 6000. Your submission will not be accepted without payment. If you would like submissions returned, please enclose a stamped self-addressed envelope or stamps to the value of posting submission.
