BAMM is pleased to announce that it will be organising an exhibition of mosaics to coincide with the 2018 Forum. The exhibition will be held at the London School of Mosaic between 21st September and 19th October 2018.

This is an exclusive opportunity for BAMM members to exhibit their work.  The exhibition will also include a juried competition and will be running throughout the 2018 BAMM Forum in London. The artwork will respond to the theme of “Open Ended”.

Depending on size, 30-50 of the best works will be selected for the exhibition and participation to a juried competition, with cash prizes of 100 (1st place), £50 (2nd place) and £25 (3rd place).  Winners will also be presented with a certificate.

All artists will have the opportunity to offer their works for sale during the exhibition (sales will be subject to commission).

This opportunity is open to BAMM members only. If you are not a member, you can join BAMM here

Entry criteria

The jury will be composed of three people (to be announced). They will be looking for well executed, original work pieces of work which display good technical skills, originality of concept and material, and which reflect the subject matter of the call.  Although the subject matter is very broad, we are looking for a connection with the 2018 BAMM Forum theme, namely “Create, Collaborate, Communicate – Mosaic” making in the public realm. Please note that the judges will be looking for diverse and original interpretations of the theme and we’d urge you to get creative and daring and have fun in your approach!

The maximum dimensions are 50cm x 50cm for 2-d works and 30cm x 30cm x 100 cm for 3-d works.

The participation fee is £20 per artwork submitted, £15 for the second and £10 for each additional submission. There is no limit to the number of submissions you can make, but please note that a maximum of 2 works will likely be allowed from each artist (depending on the amount of submissions,to ensure the widest possible participation of members).
