Bright Street Gallery welcomes submissions from artists on the themes published in our current exhibition programme which includes the dates for selection, hanging and opening for all our open exhibitions.
Please note the rules:
- Entries based on the exhibition theme may consist of work in any medium: oil, watercolour, pastel, acrylic, printmaking, drawing, photography, sculpture, ceramics or mixed media. There is no restriction on the size of a work. Artwork need not be framed for the selection, but it must be neatly presented.
- A maximum of three (3) works may be submitted for selection.
- Entries must be your own original, handmade, unaided work. You may not submit work done in classes led by an art teacher, regardless of whether the art teacher has given permission.
- No images that are taken from the internet, television, film or other public electronic media will be accepted.
- Reproductions of any other artist’s work will not be accepted.
- You must either own the copyright to any photographic images you work from, or provide written proof that you have the permission of the author of the source material to use it in your work. Please be aware that plagiarism is a criminal offence, and that intellectual property is protected. Bear in mind that copyright rules exist for your own protection.
- All entries to the exhibition must befor sale. Bright Street Gallery will apply one-third commission to all sales (example: if you price your work at R1000,00 the gallery will add R500,00 which will be taken as commission on the sale).
- To facilitate hanging, screw eyes must be fixed 20% of the way from the top of the frame with cord attached and the back of the work must be neat. Boxed canvasses must be no less than 3 cm deep and the sides must be painted. Bright Street Gallery reserves the right to reject any items it considers unacceptably framed or presented.
- There is no fee for selection. The hanging fee is R50 per selected work, payable on hanging day.
- Selected artists will be expected to bring a plate of food to the exhibition opening for which their work has been selected.
