Exhibition Opportunity at The Whitaker

Share

Eligibility:

The Whitaker invites submissions for exhibition opportunities for artists for our Visual Arts Exhibition Programme for 2022 – 2023.

The Whitaker is a unique Museum and Gallery in Rossendale, recently re opened after a significant £2 million development and extension.  We house a number of gallery spaces where we programme visual arts exhibitions from local, national and international artists. 

Our new extension provides a further large exhibition space, The Old Stables, outdoor performance area and artist in residence spaces.  We are also home to a fantastic museum collection of natural and social history collections, including taxidermy, artworks, paper, fabric and object-based collections.  There is a research room available for artists and students to spend time with our collections, work with our collections curator, and make use of our range of resources to document and further explore our fascinating exhibits within our collections stores.

The Whitaker is as much about the future as it is about the past. It is a place to explore the changing relationships between people, nature and industry over time. It is also a place for people to share their hopes and visions of a better future, and to work together to create the community they want to live in.

Prize summary: 
We provide fees for selected exhibitions, in line with Arts Council national guidelines.
Prizes Details: 

We have a rolling programme of exhibitions in our permanent Gallery 1 and Gallery 2 spaces. These exhibitions are usually 2 months minimum in duration and we produce roadside banners for the duration of these exhibitions and have opening events for each exhibition.

We schedule a number of artists talks, workshops and events.  We also occasionally produce limited edition prints in collaboration with exhibiting artists which are sold in our shop.

The Old Stables, an event and exhibition space, can be utilised for special commissions and exhibitions, usually for shorter periods of time than Galleries 1 and 2 due to event scheduling.

There is also the entrance/foyer temporary exhibition spaces, offering opportunities to display artworks in our very busy public spaces between the museum, shop and hospitality areas of our building.

We cover all marketing expenses, print and installation of banners, inclusion in What’s On guides and website content. We offer technical support for installation and de-installation of exhibitions.  Costs related to any opening events are also covered by The Whitaker.

If artworks in exhibitions are for sale we are happy to deal with sales and we take a 40% commission.

Deadline:
