Call out for submissions for 'Unique Beauty' exhibition.

Cupola's Christmas show is a very popular annual selling exhibition.  We are inviting submissions from artists and designer makers across disciplines. The gallery has always championed unique voices from both emerging and more established artists. The title of the exhibition is to encourage the celebration and purchase of unique, artist made works. The appreciation of art and fine craft is a personal experience and one we wish to encourage. Submissions are welcomed across disciplines including but not limited to:

Painting, sculpture, printmaking, photography, glass, ceramics, jewellery, textiles, artist made books, sculpture and mixed media.

Individual items are welcome as are small collections (where appropriate).

All work must be available for sale.

The exhibition runs: 25 November 2017 - 6 January 2018.

Deadline for submissions: Midnight Sunday 29 October.
