Living with the Past - Exhibition dates: 16 July - 27 August 2022. Cupola Contemporary Art is looking for artists who's work relates to the title. We are looking for artists who explore our relationship with the past in various forms; from architecture to trauma the past is intrinsically bound up in our everyday lives.

We encourage a broad interpretation of the title.  The past is intrinsically bound up in our everyday lives.  We are looking for artists who explore our relationship with the past in various forms.

We are looking for works across a range of mediums. Innovative and unusual responses are encouraged.  All works must be for sale.

Selected work will need to be delivered to Cupola no later than Friday 8 July, although we can certainly accept work earlier. Feel free to submit single items, groups or collections of work.

All works should be for sale and the gallery takes commission on works sold. There is no fee for submitting works for consideration.

To work out the overall price of your work, please use the following formula: Your wholesale price x 2.2 = retail including the VAT we have to charge. ie. £100 x 2.2 = £220.  £100 to artist, £100 to gallery £20 to HMRC.
