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.

Artizan Winter Open 2018




It’s confirmed, we’re back and we’ve not got much time! The Artizan Winter Open is officially here, and we’ve got the privilege for the second time in 2018 of being sponsored by the Edinburgh House Estates team and the Fleet Walk Management Group. As such, for our annual festive show, we’re back on the high street!

For those who are not aware, we secured a large unit on the lower level of Fleet Walk over the Summer for use as a “pop up” venue and it is this same venue we’ll be hosting our Winter Open from. The space is towards the harbour situated amongst other occupied high street premises including high end retailers and lifestyle brands. We’ll be running the space as a “pop-up” with access until the end of 2018. As we were in there over the Summer, the space is fully ready to go, and we're looking forward to once again welcoming artist's submissions to fill the space!

This is a great opportunity to display multiple artists’ during the festive season and we will be seeking submissions from artists across the South West and beyond to take part. We anticipate that this will be another major event on Torbay’s Cultural Calendar, rounding off an exceptional year for visual arts on the English Riviera. Once again, we’re at the heart of the town centre, in a prime position to recognise the importance of our local creative talent.

As before, we’ll also be inviting national and international artists to submit work, welcoming creatives from further afield into the Bay to demonstrate its value as a place to show and exhibit.

The exhibition will be comprised of three categories: general submission, affordable work (under £300) and works responding to the English Riviera UNESCO Global Geopark.

Submissions for the exhibition are now live, and we look forward to welcoming artists and art loves alike to join us in celebrating not only the festive period, but a huge year for arts and culture on the English Riviera!

Artizan Summer Open 2018




Artizan Summer Open Exhibition 2018

The Artizan Summer Open Exhibition is back, and this year we’re on tour! Thanks to the sponsorship of London based Edinburgh House Estates, we’ll be bringing our Summer Open to a prominent high street location on Torquay’s Fleet Walk, with a 4-week long exhibition in which we hope to offer space to 100+ artists at the height of the Summer Season.

About the Venue

We have secured a large unit on the lower level of Fleet Walk towards the harbour situated amongst other occupied high street premises including high end retailers and lifestyle brands. We’ll be running the space as a pop-up with access from July 6th to August 17th. From July 6th - 11th we’ll be getting the space up to scratch, creating a white box and installing a professional hanging system with the aim of giving the space a modern urban feel to ensure we can present the exhibition to the highest possible standards.

About the Opportunity

This is a great opportunity to display multiple artists’ work at the height of our season and we will be seeking submissions from artists across the South West to take part. We anticipate that this will be a major event on Torbay’s Cultural Calendar, falling in the height of the Summer Season at the heart of the town centre, and offering an opportunity to show the best of our local talent. We’ll also be inviting national and international artists to submit work, welcoming creatives from further afield into the Bay to demonstrate its value as a place to show and exhibit.

This will be a selective exhibition with works from within the South West and work from further afield judged separately by Artizan Gallery and a group of invited judges. As always, the theme is completely open and we welcome submissions from artists of all ages, backgrounds and abilities.

The Art of You



The Art of You!

February Open: The Art of You

Open Call for Submissions

As part of our continued commitment to offering space for unique and diverse forms of cultural expression, we are excited to welcome submissions to an explorative show which will run throughout February. “The Art of You” will look at works, objects, pieces of narrative, multimedia submissions, written statements, objects, journals, sketchbooks and a diverse array of other submitted material that explore the identity of the artist that submits them. This submission is open to any individual who wishes to celebrate their creativity, whether they are a full time professional artist or last did art at school as a child.

This is intended to be a richly personal exhibition that is open to artists, makers and individuals of any level or discipline to submit something which goes to the heart of their creativity. This might be a sketchbook that looks at their practice in its purest form or an object or item of particular relevance to their work. Equally, the submission could take the form of a completed artwork that is in someway uniquely representative of the artists identity.

We hope in this way to produce a show that is in part autobiographical, and where visitors are encouraged to focus on the lives behind the works. Through the collective display of personal items, the opportunity to draw interpretations of where shared aspects of creation lie, and where difference and similitude can be found in the homes of individual muses will be available, with scope to explore the raw and unrefined elements of creative process.

We view this as an extension of the “sketchbook” or “postcard” model of exhibition which looks at either the process behind an artwork, or a small representation, with our version offering a greater degree of flexibility and wider opportunity for individual expression. The exhibition follows on from a number of other shows hosted at the Gallery including the “Postcard Exhibition” which featured as part of the Gallery’s touring London exhibition, and “The Anonymous Artist”, an open show exploring issues of identity in which artworks were hung anonymously.


Selection and Deadlines

There will be no formal selection process, but objects or works will be refused if their display is not practically achievable. The final deadline for completed submissions will be the 31st January. However, if we receive large numbers of submissions in advance of this date, we may close applications early if we consider the exhibition to be full.

Sales, Commissions and Fees

Whilst we are happy for any items to be displayed as for sale, we anticipate that due to the nature of submissions this will primarily be a non-sales exhibition. Therefore, we welcome and encourage supporting prints and browser works to accompany any application. Were works are available to purchase a 30% commission will apply unless otherwise agreed.

With the above in mind, there will only be a low administration fee to cover the cost of entries of £5.

Artizan will be undertaking a number of revenue generating projects in association with this exhibition all of which are explained in full under the individual Submission Type sections.

Additional Requirements

A complete submission consists of a fully completed booking form and the appropriate fee, as well as a signed copy of the terms and conditions. Where necessary, submissions should be submitted with an explanation of their relevance.

Additionally, as part of the record of the exhibition we will be carrying out audio visual documentation which will include a compulsory verbal audio recording from each artist. The content of this can be of your choosing ranging from simply speaking your name, through to a full artist statement or another reading of your choosing. You have the option of recording this yourself and submitting it to us in a suitable format or of recording your piece in the gallery. For those who wish to do their own recording this could be as simple as using a voice recording app on a phone; we recommend “Audio Recorder” for android, or the stock voice memo recorder app on iPhone. Audio recordings must be of an audible volume and as clear of background noise as possible.

Submission Types


When submitting objects, we will ask you to confirm whether your item can be handled by visitors. Where this is not the case, a label stating this will be displayed next to the object. Object submissions can take any form be it artist tool, material or studio item.

Objects not displayed for sale cannot be insured by the gallery and as such all submissions are made in the knowledge that we cannot provide financial compensation in the event an object is damaged or stolen. We recommend that high value objects are not submitted and remind that all objects are provided at the artists own risk. We will of course treat all submissions with the same care and concern that we do are usual artwork submissions.

Any objects displayed for sale will be subject to a 30% commission fee. Your object may also feature in photography which will form part of a series of prints which will be available to purchase throughout the exhibition.

Performance Pieces and Audio-visual

All visual performance pieces must be submitted in video format and will be displayed via projector or other suitable screens with any audio. For the purpose of display, where required we will add titles and supporting information to these. Any spoken performance pieces can either by submitted in video format or audio only. Audio only submissions will have a title visual attached to them for the purposes of display.

Any other audio-visual pieces such as animation, film or musical production will be exhibited in the same manner. If pieces are available for purchase as digital downloads online you will be required to provide a link to the point of sale and it is expected that any sales during the period of the exhibition will be subject to the Gallery’s 30% commission.

We will produce a compilation of all pieces which will be available to view online and will also be available to purchase as a digital file. All submissions will be required to approve Artizan’s use of a minimum 20 second excerpt of the piece that is representative of the whole work for this purpose.

Books, Long Texts, Journals or Sketchbooks

Journals and sketchbooks form a vital part of many artists’ creative process. The opportunity to explore these is a privilege to any audience. Any submissions of these are subject to the understanding that visitors are permitted to browse the books with care or with the assistance of a gallery steward. Any special handling requirements can be specified, such as the use of gloves.

Long texts are considered to be any text greater than five sides of A4 and should be provided as a digital word document. If you wish to submit a handwritten document this should be provided as an original (not a photocopy) and must be provided with a digital transcript where practical. Long texts might take the form of a narrative, manifesto or autobiographical piece.

Books, unless autobiographical, are not anticipated to have been authored by the applicant, but instead constitute a text that informs or inspires the artist’s work, or is otherwise of personal significance.

Any books, journals or sketchbooks displayed for sale will be subject to a 30% commission fee. Long texts will be included as part of a compilation which will be available to purchase as a digital download and may also be reproduced in print. Books, journals or sketchbooks may also feature in photography which will form part of a series of prints which will be available to purchase throughout the exhibition. Books, journals or sketchbooks will not be replicated in their entirety as part of this process but may have the covers photographed or be pictured open. Handwritten pieces may also feature in photography which will form part of a series of prints which will be available to purchase throughout the exhibition.

Written Pieces, Short Texts or Artist Statements

Any written piece under five sides of A4 will be covered in this category and might take the form of a poem, quote, artist statement or other written piece. They should be submitted as a digital word document or if you wish to submit a handwritten document this should be provided as an original (not a photocopy) and must be provided with a digital transcript where practical.

Written pieces, short texts or artist statements, will be included as part of a compilation which will be available to purchase as a digital download and may also be reproduced in print. Handwritten pieces may also feature in photography which will form part of a series of prints which will be available to purchase throughout the exhibition.

2D/3D Works

2D and 3D works should be of particular significance or relevance to the artist. They might be self-portraiture, an early work integral to the applicant’s development or an unusual deviation from their usual style. Alternatively, the applicant may submit a piece not by themselves if it is of personal relevance.

We are not imposing a size limit on 2D/3D works but due to the nature of this exhibition we do not guarantee to hang works. All works will be displayed safely and available to view throughout the exhibition. Works displayed for sale will be subject to a 30% commission fee.

Call Details

Dates: The exhibition will run from February 6th - March 2nd with an Artist Preview on February 9th 18:00-20:00. Exhibition set-up will take place during February 5th and the final deadline to receive work is 5PM on Saturday 3rd.

PREMIO OPEN 15a edizione Premio Speciale Collaterale alla 72. Mostra Internazionale d'Arte Cinematografica.





15a edizione

Premio Speciale Collaterale alla  72. Mostra Internazionale d’Arte Cinematografica

Vince il Premio OPEN

Carlotta Cerquetti con Harry’s Bar


Venerdì 11 settembre 2015 alle ore 18.30 presso Hilton Molino Stucky

Consegna il Premio il Prof. Achille Bonito Oliva


PDG Arte Communications istituisce la quindicesima edizione del Premio OPEN, in occasione di OPEN 18. Esposizione Internazionale di Sculture ed Installazioni. L’istituzione di questo riconoscimento, ideato nel 2000 da Paolo De Grandis e Pierre Restany, nasce parallelamente ad OPEN, Esposizione Internazionale di Sculture ed Installazioni che il 3 settembre ha inaugurato la sua diciottesima edizione. L'evento prevede la premiazione di un regista presente alla Mostra Internazionale d’Arte Cinematografica di Venezia che con la sua opera riveli, in maniera inedita, un fertile interesse verso la seducente tematica della mutua interazione tra arte e cinema, due forme artistiche che vivono d’immagine e si nutrono del desiderio di tradurre emozioni.

La giuria, presieduta da Paolo De Grandis, ha così motivato la scelta: “Se i luoghi sono ispirazione e le atmosfere nutrimento per la creatività; e se i luoghi poi diventano scrigni di memorie, casseforti di storie, custodi di respiri e le atmosfere avvolgono come vapore i volti e le mani, l’arte infine restituisce passaggi di tempo e di uomini. E tra le pagine, gli scatti e le pennellate di opere che viaggiano per il mondo, tra le mani e negli occhi della gente, vive l’Harry’s Bar. Il premio OPEN 2015 va alla pellicola di Carlotta Cerquetti e al suo eccezionale lavoro sulla memoria. Tra interviste di oggi e materiale d’archivio lo spettatore legge ottant’anni di storia da un’ottica particolare: Venezia con la sua Mostra del Cinema e la Biennale D’Arte, la guerra e la Liberazione, gli anni del Jet Set e gli anni Sessanta, con le sue leggende, storie di famiglia e ritratti di geni. Da Ernest Hemingway a Truman Capote, da Peggy Guggenheim a Montale l’Harry’s Bar ha conosciuto talenti straordinari. Molte pagine sono state scritte sui suoi tavoli ed ora finalmente una pagina cinematografica ci racconta la sua storia.”    


Il Premio OPEN 2015 è un'opera ideata e realizzata dall’artista Agustí Roqué che espone ad OPEN 18 e al Padiglione Andorra alla Biennale Arte 2015. Nel corso delle passate edizioni il Premio è stato conferito ai registi Joao Botelho con il film Quem es tu?, Julie Taymor con Frida, Takeshi Kitano con Zatoichi, Marziyeh Meshkini con Sag - haye velgard, Stanley Kwan con Changhen ge (Everlasting Regret), Jia Zhangke con Dong, Peter Greenaway con Nightwatching, Philip Haas con The Butcher’s Shop, Michael Moore con Capitalism: A Love Story, John Woo, il Direttore Marco Müller, Robert Redford, a Serena Nono e nell’ultima edizione a Rä Di Martino.La mostra OPEN è realizzata da diciotto anni in concomitanza con la Mostra del Cinema di Venezia, a conferma del preciso intento di rafforzare il legame esistente tra arte e cinema, e l’istituzione del Premio OPEN testimonia questo fecondo e stretto rapporto.
