HOW DO I APPLY?

HOW DO I COLLECT MY OBJECT(s)
Arrange a day/time and come and collect your object(s) There is a £10 deposit needed for each object which will be refunded when you bring the completed piece in for the exhibition. We have 5 circuit boards and 20 Organ pipes ranging from 61cm to 183cm
HOW LONG DO I HAVE TO COMPLETE MY ARTWORK?
Completed artworks must be returned by the end of September so the quicker you collect your object the longer you have.
WHEN IS THE EXHIBITION?
Our ‘Venite’ exhibition will be held from 17th October – 7th November 2018
IS THERE A THEME?
The theme of your artwork is up to you. We just ask that it is suitable for exhibiting in a family friendly church space. If you would like to you could use the exhibition title ‘Venite’ as a starting point but it is not compulsory.
The exhibition is entitled ‘Venite’ the Latin verb ‘Come!’. The Venite is also a liturgical chant composed of parts of Psalms 95 and 96 which was included in some services here and was printed on one of a selection of old Hymn board cards found at the church which will be incorporated into the exhibition. The title was chosen for its welcoming and inclusive nature.
* Bishop Street Gallery take 30% commission on sales made through the exhibition
