Open Exhibition 2019

Number 8 is pleased to invite you to submit work for possible inclusion in their Open Exhibition 2019 taking place from Thursday 26 September - Wednesday 16 October 2019 in The Foyer gallery space at Number 8. This year’s open exhibition is dedicated to the memory of art fair organiser Angela ‘Bunny’ Wynn. The exhibition is organised by a steering group of professional artists and Number 8’s Programme Manager. 

Open Exhibition Criteria
  • You are able to submit up to two pictures.  There is a handling charge applicable to your submission of £5 for one picture or £6 for two pictures.
  • Total payment must be sent with this form by the deadline. Cheques should be made payable to ‘Number 8’. This payment is an administrative charge to cover the consideration of your submission and is non-refundable.  
  • Pictures must be 2D and can be in any medium.
  • Please complete the Title, Medium, Price and Size categories
  • The Reject/Accept boxes are for Number 8’s use only. This form will be returned to you specifying whether any of your submissions have been accepted.
  • You must send a photograph, or digital image on a CD or memory stick, of the pictures you’re submitting (not the actual picture) and number them according to how you complete the submission form. 
  • Please state if a picture is not for sale in the ‘Price’ section.
  • You must send your completed form to Open Exhibition, Number 8, High Street, Pershore, WR10 1BG with an appropriate SAE. 
  • Once work for the exhibition has been selected Number 8 will return the assessed form with your photograph(s) in the SAE provided. 

If accepted you must ensure that…
  • all pictures are framed (apart from box framed canvases) and mirror plated (see sketch A)
  • all submitted pictures must be labelled (see sketch A)
  • appropriate packaging/wrapping, labelled with the title of the work, is provided for pictures so that when the exhibition is dismantled they can be packaged ready for collection. Packaging that is unlabelled will not be kept.
Pictures that do not fulfil these criteria or are inappropriately framed may still be rejected at the point of installation.

Please note: With the limitations of space, certain pictures may be accepted but not hung. The committee’s decision is final. Every care is taken with pictures sent for exhibition but Number 8 will not be responsible for any loss or damage.  Artists are strongly urged to insure their work against damage and theft.

If your picture is installed…
  • Number 8 will produce a written catalogue of all pictures on display.
  • Prizes will be awarded for the three pictures of special merit in the exhibition
  • Number 8 will handle the sale of pictures and pay the artist by cheque within 14 days of the end of the exhibition minus 20% commission plus VAT. 

The important dates…
  • The deadline for submissions is Thursday 25 July, 11.00am
  • You will be informed of the results of your submission by the end of August.
  • Successful applicants will need to bring their actual framed and mirror-plated pictures to Number 8 on Wednesday 25 September between 10.00am and 3.00pm The work must be appropriately wrapped and labelled. 
  • A Drinks Reception for successful exhibitors will take place on Friday 27 September, 8.00pm.
  • Artists must collect and wrap their pictures during dismantling on Wednesday 16 October between 4.15pm - 6.00pm. Please note we reserve the right to charge a storage fee if work is not collected as stated. 

Checklist
  • Can you fulfil all the criteria set out in this submission sheet?
  • Have you filled in the first page of this form?
  • Have you numbered and enclosed the photographs or digital images of your pictures?
  • Have you enclosed a SAE for the return of your images and assessed submission form?
  • Have you included a cheque for the handling fee?

Our Selection Process
We will undoubtedly receive more applications that we can accept so not all work will be successful. Selection will be made regarding the quality and diversity of work under consideration.  Work may be rejected that is of sufficient quality but does not fit with the overall exhibition due to duplication of style or subject matter.   

Please note:
  • We will not consider work by artists who have had a solo exhibition at Number 8 in the past 12 months or have one booked for later in 2019/early 2020.
  • We will not consider individual pieces of work that have already been exhibited at the Number 8 gallery.
  • Pieces selected for the Open Exhibition will not be accepted for exhibition again at Number 8 within the next two years.
  • Submissions via email are not accepted.

We wish you the best of luck and look forward to receiving your submission.

Yours sincerely




Emma Bangham 
Programme Manager,
Chair of Gallery Steering Panel
