We invite you to submit images for consideration for our upcoming show:
Seeing beauty in the ordinary and everyday
This will, as always, be an eclectic and diverse exhibition.
We are looking for artwork that celebrates the beauty of the ordinary - the beauty of every-day objects, everyday views and everyday occurrences. Art that brings to attention that which might otherwise be missed.
Our ‘brainstorm’ produced these ideas:
anything that relates to what happens in or around ‘home’ (including still lifes / interiors)
a more ‘metaphysical’ space that speaks of ‘home’
art inspired by food/nourishment of any kind, (including drinks – e.g. water, tea, coffee, etc… or work that includes tea bags, coffee stains etc.)
glasses, dishes, silverware, tools (not only images of, but also actual glasswork, functional ceramic pieces, work made from silverware. Steampunk?)
animals, (pets), insects, birds, (creatures that you might see on a daily basis – nothing exotic)
clothing, shoes… Or artwork made using fabrics/yarns… knitted work?
work that references the ordinary activities of life: we’ve mentioned eating & drinking, but what about sleeping, dreaming, exercising, walking, reading, working, playing, conversing, etc…
streetscapes, cityscapes, industrial spaces
views from your window
Abstract work is very welcome
Sculptural pieces (indoor or outdoor) welcome
Something else? We welcome a broader interpretation of the theme than the ideas above
We encourage you to send us digital images for consideration. (ideally 5 images minimum, and as many as you like.) See details below.
The gallery's commission on any work sold is 35%.
