To relaunch our Lucius Street venue we’re excited to announce the Artizan Small Works Exhibition.

This showcase of art will be entirely made up of works with dimensions less than 40x40cm with an upper price limit of £300, as we welcome back artists and audiences to our venues.

Whilst the recent UK announcement about reopening has not offered complete certainty, we plan to relaunch with this exhibition on the current planned date for easing of non-essential retail of April 12th with the exhibition running until 8th May. If there is any delay to reopening, rather than shortening the exhibition we plan to postpone it to November where it will be our celebratory exhibition to round off 2021.

Given the unfortunate start to the year, we believe this exhibition will offer us the chance to kick off with a vibrant and welcoming showcase, with small works offering an intimate and accessible subject, and hopefully the chance to reflect on the last 12 months.

COVID-19

The COVID-19 global pandemic has required us to make some changes in the way we work to ensure the safety of audiences and partners. Below we briefly outline our commitment to safety as well as the contingencies in place if for whatever reason events relating to the pandemic impact the exhibition.

Artizan Collective CIC and Artizan Gallery venues and employees undertake all the required steps to remain COVID-19 Secure in line with the government’s standards for retail premises and cultural venues. As well as implementing provisions which enable us to work safely with the public in a retail setting, this also applies to the way we work with artists to securely display and showcase their work and deliver supporting services. If you have any specific queries about how this is achieved or need to make us aware of special arrangements you may require, please get in touch.

KEY CHANGES TO EXHIBITIONS

  • COVID-19 Secure guidelines such as social distancing will apply to all our working practices and may impact delivery and collection procedures. As always, we will aim to be as flexible as possible to support the needs of artists, but some procedures will undoubtedly be more restrictive
  • Retail premises are required to manage their audiences to allow sufficient distancing within venues and as such there will be requirements to limit the total number of visitors in the venue at one time. This may also require us to mark a prescribed route around the exhibition that audiences will be obliged to follow.
  • Due to restrictions on large gatherings exhibition launch events cannot be guaranteed and the format of these may vary.


CONTINGENCY PLANNING

  • We do not foresee an eventuality where we have to cancel the exhibition but if for whatever reason this is necessary, we will endeavour to carry over submissions to future opportunities.


SHIELDING

  • Are you shielding? We want to do our best to support anyone to submit to the show so if you’re shielding, get in touch to discuss options for how you can safely provide work for the show if selected.

How much does it cost?
£5 administration fee or alternatively you can utilise our Postcard Donation Programme:

All selected artists who have chosen this fee option will be asked to donate a postcard work to the exhibition. This should be a small work, no larger than A4 and need not be mounted or framed in anyway. It might be a sketch, study, collage, print or experimentation but whatever form it takes you should be comfortable presenting it as a representative example of your work or process. However, the piece does not necessarily have to be similar to the work in your main submission.

We understand that this submission format is not suitable for people working in all mediums, particularly 3D artists, so do contact us to discuss suitable submissions.

Images of postcard works will need to be provided as part of your submission, and if selected will form part of a visual arts support campaign we will run as part of the event.
