Call for Artists/Craft Practioners

The Bridewell.

Christmas Presence 2007> The Bridewell Studios, Liverpool> Exhibition: 1st – 22nd December> Christmas Market: Saturday 1st December 11-4pm>

The Bridewell Studios Gallery is currently seeking Merseyside-based artists and craft practitioners to take part in its annual Christmas Presence Exhibition and Craft Market.

Building on last year’s hugely successful event, Christmas Presence will incorporate art and ceramics workshops, live music, mulled wine and festive food, all in the stunning setting of our old police station courtyard.

We would like to hear from local artists and makers interested in showcasing their work in our exhibition, or in holding a stall during our one day Christmas Market.

Ceramics, glass, textiles, prints, small paintings, sculptures, Christmas cards and handmade gifts are just some of the types of work that we are interested in. We will allocate artists to the exhibition or the market depending on what we think is most appropriate for their work.

This is a great opportunity to sell your work, meet other artists and join the festivities in this vibrant, artist-led gallery space.

Artists will be responsible for transportation and insurance of their own work. All work will be for sale and will be subject to 20% commission. There is no fee for participation.

The deadline for applications is Friday 26 October. To apply please submit 10 images of your work and a brief CV or biography to:
Vanessa Bartlett> Gallery Co-ordinator> The Bridewell Studios> Prescot Street> Liverpool> L7 8UL>
t: 07810 627 763

The Bridewell Studios Gallery runs an innovative programme of exhibitions, workshops and events that are accessible for the whole community. Drawing on The Bridewell's history as a vibrant artist led organization, we work with emerging and mid-career artists to produce engaging exhibitions across a variety of different art forms.
