Fronteer Gallery in Sheffield are looking for contemporary landscape artworks to form an exhibition in March 2023.

Work can be wall mounted or sculptural. Wall mounted work can be any size or shape, but should be no bigger 80x80cm. Sculptural work should fit on a 30x30cm plinth or smaller, or can be bigger if it does not need to stand on a plinth. We regret that we are unable to accept audio or video works. This opportunity is only open to artists based in the UK. 

Artists are invited to submit 1 piece of work for the exhibition. You may provide a short description of no more than 150 words which will be displayed alongside the work.

In return for your fee, you will get a private view evening with free drinks which you are welcome to bring friends and family along to, invigilation throughout, and promotion of the exhibition online through social media posts.

The submission deadline is 10th February 2023.

Successful artists are welcome to send their work by post. Work should be posted to our gallery, which recently relocated to Orchard Square in Sheffield city centre.

How to Submit

Wall Mounted work

Artists are invited to submit one piece of work each. Work can be any size or shape but should be no bigger than 80x80 cm. Please give us the completed size of your work including any frames or mounts. All work should be ready to hang and can be framed or unframed, with suitable hanging attachments in place. You may submit up to 3 images of your piece of work.

Please note, although there is an upper limit size restriction, we only have a limited capacity to accept larger works, and smaller works are much more likely to be successful.

Sculpture and 3-D

3-D and sculptural work that does not hang on the wall should be able to fit onto a 30 x 30 plinth. Work can be larger if it does not need to be displayed on a plinth, but please give clear instructions as to how the work should be displayed and what you will provide yourself to aid its display. All work should arrive ready to display.

Work should be collected from the gallery on 25th or 26th March ONLY. After 26th March the Fronteer team will be stepping back from the gallery until May as we prepare for the birth of our baby. During this time the gallery will be handed over to another artist who will not have access to your work and you will not be able to collect your work from the gallery.  

If you would like your work returning to you by post please be aware that we charge a fee which includes a £4 handling fee and 2nd Class signed for postage. Larger parcels can be returned through Parcelforce and will be sent Express 48. Couriers cannot collect your work from the gallery and we do not print postage labels. If work is small enough you are welcome to include a stamped addressed envelope for return postage which will incur no further charge.

All work must be complete at the time of submission. Any work which varies from the original piece or size submitted may be rejected. If you wish to submit any form of print, it will be your responsibility to print it off and prepare it for exhibition before delivering it to us.

Thank you and good luck!

Michael and Sharon (The Fronteer Team)
