PAINT! Will be a group exhibition at Fronteer Gallery, Sheffield. We are looking for all things paint.

Fronteer Gallery are looking for exciting works which respond to the theme of PAINT! As well as traditional paintings, we are also looking for exciting and experimental works, and perhaps ways of using paint in unusual or unexpected ways. Your work can be in any medium (except audio or video) as long as they respond to the theme of PAINT! We look forward to seeing what you submit.

The exhibition will run from 23rd September – 21st October 2022.

There will be a private view evening on Thursday 29th September.

It is free to submit work, with only successful artists paying a £40 fee.

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

UK based artists are invited to submit ONE piece of work along with up to 150 words about the work which will be displayed alongside your work.  

The gallery will be open Wednesdays – Saturdays 10-3 throughout the exhibition.

The submission deadline is 14th August 2022. Successful artists will be contacted by 16th August 2022.

How to Submit

Artists are invited to submit ONE piece of work.

Work can be 2D or 3D, though unfortunately we cannot accept video or audio works.

Wall mounted work can be any size, but please be aware that we can only accept a limited amount of large-scale works, and smaller works (60cm or less) are much more likely to be successful. The dimensions you give for your work when submitting must include the size of the frame if the work is a framed piece.

Sculptural and 3D works should be able to stand on a 40x40cm plinth, or smaller. Larger sculptural pieces that will not fit on a plinth are welcome, but please give specific details of how they are to be displayed. If you are unsure about the size and shape of 3D pieces, and our ability to cater for them, please get in touch.

All wall text information relating to your work, including price and description, will be taken directly from your Curatorspace submission and should be correct at the time of submission.

Please submit up to 3 images of your work, one image showing the finished piece of work, including the frame if the work is framed, and two further images to show detail if needed.

You should write up to 150 words about the work which will be displayed alongside your work.

Work should be collected from the gallery from Wednesday 26th October. 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 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)
