Christmas Present! An open call to artists!

Christmas Present! An open call to artists!

Every year most galleries (ourselves included) end the year with the predictable affordable Christmas miniatures exhibition. We are bored with the timing and have therefore decided to have Christmas in late August instead! Hence the name Christmas Present (as in now not then) and of course that it will be a great opportunity to stock up on potential sticking fillers or great small gifts way ahead of the rush of Christmas. We will celebrate with mince pies and Sherry as it will still be cool enough to simulate a European Christmas.

Artists are invited to submit up to 5 small images, sculptures, multiples or prints for this show in any medium. In addition to the show at gordart gallery, some works will be selected for show at Sell! Sell! Sell! curated for the Aardklop Festival in Potchefstroom late in September by Gordon Froud.

So put on your creative thinking cap and submit something fun, something powerful, something beautiful without the Christmas theme or Kitschy overtones. Smaller than 40cm in any direction including frames but closer to 10cm would be fabulous. We need to receive the work by August 23 to hang for the opening on 31 August. We do however need to know how many people will participate as soon as possible, so drop us a line to confirm. Participation will be charged at R100.00 per artist for up to 5 works. We look forward to your reply. Feel free to forward this email on to anyone who you think will be interested.

Ho! Ho! Ho!
Gordon Froud.
