Open Call for Submissions
As we move through Spring 2021, emerging from a grim winter lockdown and into a strange new world, we want to capture the positive vibes of this unique moment in a group exhibition of visual art on the theme of: Reborn.
Maybe you have work created during the pandemic or something that was done previously, or perhaps you would like to make new work in response to this theme – amateur or pro, either way we want to hear from you! We invite submissions from local artists, and we are particularly interested to hear from young people and under-represented groups. All art forms welcome including digital art forms. This exhibition will act as the centrepiece of our town-centre venue reopening event in July and will run for 3 weeks.
The Hive will promote the exhibition online on our website and social media, and it will be featured in our next upcoming printed brochure. A free exhibition catalogue will be produced with images and info of all displayed artworks, and there may also be opportunities for exhibiting artists to host a talk or workshop to further engage the local community with their artistic ideas and practice.
