As fellow creatives we know how difficult it is to get your work seen, so we want to support artists and makers to show their work. For the third year running we are looking for an artwork to be displayed on what we are calling the Boarhunt 4th Plinth. This could be a new item made specifically for the site or an existing artwork that would look great in this situation.
The prize will be to have your work on show during Art in the Garden 2020. You will also receive a ‘production fund’ made up of money from the entry fees. So, the more people that enter the more the winner receives. Minimum amount of £100 up to a maximum of £500.
Who can apply?
This is an open call to any artist or maker working in any medium, living in Hampshire or the adjoining counties. Entrants must be 18 years of age or over, including students.
The entrance fee is £10 per submission with a maximum of two submissions.
Please go to our Eventbrite page to make your payment.
The winning work will be selected by our judging panel: Stuart Rodda, Exhibitions Organiser, Southampton City Art Gallery; Lisa Traxler, artist & our 2019 competition winner, as well as LFLA’s Jan Griffiths and Adrian Mundy.
We will have a dedicated open day on 24th November 2019, 10am-4pm so that you can view the site if you wish to help inform your work.
You can also view the site during Jan’s Making Merry open studio Christmas sale, 23rd November – 1st December, 10am – 5pm. There will be lots of lovely ceramic, glass, metal, concrete and textile things to buy.
Other times may be available by appointment.
The deadline for entries is 12noon, 20th January 2020
