Harbour House in Kingsbridge is challenging local artists to produce new work for an Open Art Exhibition in October. The title of the show is Autumnal Changes, and artists are invited to submit up to four pieces of work.
Harbour House Arts co-ordinator Alison Veazey says, “We’re asking artists to consider the theme and produce new works of art in response.
“With either a literal or a metaphorical response, the creative possibilities are endless, and artwork can be in any medium.
“Painting and photography are always popular choices, but we’re also hoping that sculptors will respond imaginatively to the theme.”
Artists can enter up to four pieces of work, which will be assessed by a small panel of invited artists. All work must be original, not reproduction. We also ask artists to submit a short written statement or perhaps a page of illustrations to explain the works.
“This is the second of two open art exhibitions at Harbour House this year. It’s always so encouraging to see new artists taking their first steps in exhibiting, and of course it’s exciting when established artists use our these exhibitions as an opportunity to take their work in a new direction. In 2019 there will be two more open art exhibitions.”
Artists have until 9am on Thursday 15 March. Artwork is then handed in at the gallery on the morning of Tuesday 9 October between 10am and midday.

The exhibition runs over the busy school half term holiday period from 17 – 27 October 2018.
