Artizan Winter Open 2018
Curated by Artizan Gallery
It's confirmed, we're back and we've not got much time! The Artizan Winter Open is officially here, and we've got the privilege for the second time in 2018 of being sponsored by the Edinburgh House Estates team and the Fleet Walk Management Group. As such, for our annual festive show, we're back on the high street!
For those who are not aware, we secured a large unit on the lower level of Fleet Walk over the Summer for use as a 'pop up' venue and it is this same venue we'll be hosting our Winter Open from. The space is towards the harbour situated amongst other occupied high street premises including high end retailers and lifestyle brands. We'll be running the space as a 'pop-up' with access until the end of 2018. As we were in there over the Summer, the space is fully ready to go, and we're looking forward to once again welcoming artist's submissions to fill the space!
This is a great opportunity to display multiple artists' during the festive season and we will be seeking submissions from artists across the South West and beyond to take part. We anticipate that this will be another major event on Torbay's Cultural Calendar, rounding off an exceptional year for visual arts on the English Riviera. Once again, we're at the heart of the town centre, in a prime position to recognise the importance of our local creative talent.
As before, we'll also be inviting national and international artists to submit work, welcoming creatives from further afield into the Bay to demonstrate its value as a place to show and exhibit.
The exhibition will be comprised of three categories: general submission, affordable work (under £300) and works responding to the English Riviera UNESCO Global Geopark.
Submissions for the exhibition are now live, and we look forward to welcoming artists and art loves alike to join us in celebrating not only the festive period, but a huge year for arts and culture on the English Riviera!
