Don’t be disheartened that Summer is nearly over, as there is a crisp, fresh batch of opportunities on the horizon.
Summer is winding down and the temperatures are cooling, but there’s sill a chance to enter that prize or exhibition and get your work seen by you’re fellow contemporaries. From a Christmas window display in Wales, art fair in the East, to an all female artists exhibition, there’s certainly a mix bag of deadlines to get creative with!
One to consider if you’re a contemporary maker is the Jerwood Makers Open. Deadline is 24 September. Good luck!
Launched in 2010, it focuses on makers and making supporting work in a diverse range of materials and progressive practices including, but not limited to: glass, metal, wood, paper, textiles, ceramics, furniture and jewellery.
Five artists will be selected through this national open call and each receive £8,000 to create new works for a national touring exhibition.
