We are excited to announce our next call for artists submissions for our forthcoming exhibition ‘Eos’ - The show opens on 26th May 2024.

Our forthcoming exhibition will explore TRANSFORMATION - Eos - the Greek goddess of the dawn, a patron of new beginnings is said to dispense the morning dew on the earth. She was also known for her gentle nature and her ability to inspire others to live up to their full potential.

This representation symbolises the beginning of a new day and the renewal of life. The imagery of Eos as the Bringer of Dawn signifies hope, renewal, and the cycle of nature. Poets and writers have employed vivid imagery to depict her awakening the world from darkness, evoking a sense of awe and wonder.

It seems a fitting title for a show exploring the continual process and cycle of personal transformation - a journey of regular and steady self-improvement - not dissimilar to the continual cycle of Eos the goddess of dawn - bringing light, new beginnings, awe, wonder and beauty to each new day.

We would love to receive an array of work which you as artists feel is embodied with the cycle of transformation, depicting the rich, vivid, tender and beautiful symbolism of this process: pretty much anything that fits seamlessly with what Transformation means to you.
