There are a number of different ways to get involved in Artweek and exhibit your work. You can be a part of the main exhibition as either an invited or a public artist. We pride ourselves on our openness – literally anyone can apply to exhibit, and there is no curation or selection process. All you have to do to apply as a public artist is use the link below to submit your application during the month of April.
We have changed the applications process slightly for 2017. We are taking all applications online through this website, but contrary to previous years, you do not need to know the titles of the artworks you wish to submit right away. Starting this year there is no draw if we are oversubscribed – applications will simply be processed on a first-come, first served basis. Once places are gone, they are gone!
Also beginning this year, we are doing away with the separate Catalogue and Fringe Guide – and instead producing one publication – an Artweek Guide – this will contain information on all the fringe venues, a guide to the main exhibition and a full directory of all artists exhibiting in Artweek. This guide will have a much wider circulation than the previous Catalogue and will hopefully be a much better tool to promote Artweek as a whole. It won’t list all the individual artworks as the previous catalogue did. This will enable us to publish and distribute it much earlier in the year, and also means exhibitors have much more time to choose and submit the details of their artwork.
As a part of you application process, you can choose to pay a little extra to enhance your listing in the Artweek Guide with a picture and/or a biography. Remember, all money raised goes to MacMillan Cancer Support, so why not push the boat out?
As ever, you can always choose to get in touch with a local venue and set up a fringe exhibition. Fringe applications will also take place through this website – please use the link below when Fringe applications open…
