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.
