CALL FOR ENTRIES TO GLASGOW PRINT STUDIO MEMBERS – ‘PEOPLE SHAPE GLASGOW: AN OBSERVATION IN PRINT’

Six Foot Gallery would like to propose this exhibition ‘PEOPLE SHAPE GLASGOW: AN OBSERVATION IN PRINT’ to the members of the Glasgow Print Studio to offer an additional platform to exhibit their works in Glasgow and to see what their observations are of Glasgow and it’s people. Who are the people that shape Glasgow and what marks have they left on the city?

The theme of this exhibition although regional is to be liberal in avenues of thought and direction welcoming experimental interpretations of this title in portraiture, still life, abstract, and landscape.

On entering into our exhibition, we’d also like members to write a short paragraph explaining their visual interpretation to the title to which we would then compile the statements into an exhibition catalogue.

Important dates are as follows:

Digital Submissions Deadline: 20th of September

Hand in dates: 4th/ 5th/ 8th of October

Exhibition: 12th of October – 9th of November

Preview: 12th of October

Maximum 2 works (Space pending).

£5 fee per work entered.

To enter into this exhibition please send images of your work to sixfootgallery@gmail.com along with your personal statement.

Please note our office opening hours are: Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday 10am – 5pm.
