The Snow Witch Open Art Exhibition



The Snow Witch - Second Call for Artists

The Art of Magic, The Magic of Art.

Celebrating Portsmouth’s extraordinary makers and creators.

Artists are invited to enter the Snow Witch Open Art Exhibition, which will be occurring over a four-week period during October and November in Cascades Shopping Centre, Portsmouth.

The exhibition is open to any artists working across any medium and in any discipline. All we ask is that the work(s) presented be a direct response to The Snow Witch novel in some form or other. Interpretation is down to you.

The idea Open Art Exhibition is inspired by author Matt Wingett's Portsmouth-based novel, The Snow Witch, and the wish to celebrate the diverse talents of Portsmouth’s creative community.

A presentation on the exhibition will be held at Hunter Gatherer, Portsmouth, on 22nd July at 7pm. All artists interested are very welcome to attend and find out more about what is planned for the exhibition.

Deadline for entry is 20th September 2019 and the entry fee is £5.

The exhibition is intended to run between 19th October and 10th November as part of this year’s Darkfest arts festival. The launch of the exhibition will on the afternoon of 19th October 2019 and will coincide with the launch of this year’s Darkfest.

We have adopted the principles of: radical inclusion, self-reliance, self-expression, community cooperation, gifting, de-commodification, and leaving no trace as an underpinning philosophy for the exhibition.

What do we mean by this?

We will facilitate a space for you to exhibit your work but the responsibility for making the work, delivering the work, installing the work, and removing the work at the conclusion of the exhibition will be yours.

We expect to be able to provide lots of support for you to do what you need to do to show your work. We expect to have people to help, tools, some materials and we hope to have exhibition stands, perhaps even more. All of this is there to support you exhibiting your work.

Ultimately though, we aim to facilitate an opportunity, the responsibility for your contribution to the exhibition will be yours.
