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.
Successful artists will be contacted by email or in writing approximately 2-3 weeks
after the deadline.
