granton:hub would like to invite visual artists and makers, as well as artist collectives/groups to use Madelvic House as the location for their next exhibition. Showcase your art work in 2023.
This call for expressions of interest is open to painters, sculptors, illustrators, printmakers, photographers, textile artists, ceramicists, jewellers, plus new media artists. To exhibit and showcase their works as part of granton:hub’s ‘The Last Weekend’ Art Exhibition program.
Granton:hub will make available the main exhibition room (the Sphinx) free of charge on the last weekend of every month. Instead of a room hire charge, artists will be charged a commission of 20% for every piece sold. All work on show must be for sale.
Artists and makers will be able to book (in advance) the last weekend of every month at granton:hub, Madelvic House. From Friday evening (the afternoon slot is subject to availability) to Sunday evening, allocated on a first come-first served basis.
Artists can organise individual or a group exhibition, but one artist should be the main lead and take overall responsibility.
There are no restrictions on media used, nor the size of works submitted, but please consider that gallery space is limited. For info the sphinx room size is 8.75m x 4.7m and the ceiling is 3.3m high. Viewing beforehand is recommended.
If submitting music or digital video then please also give the running time (in minutes) and a short description of the piece. We have a screen and moveable seating available for public showings.
To register interest please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org and include a brief proposal of your exhibition plans (maximum 100 words). In addition, give your full contact details, any social media or website (optional) and send a maximum of 3 images to give an indication of the nature of the works that will be on show.
A £10.00 deposit is required to secure the booking. This will be refunded after the exhibition, but also as a guarantee against any potential cleaning or decorating costs.
