AIR Gallery is seeking Sculptural works on the theme of Play for an exhibition to be held in July 2019. This is free to enter.

We are seeking sculptural work that explores the theme of Play. We are particularly interested in work(s) that have one of the following:

  • Encourage new thinking about sculpture or sculpture history

  • Raising public awareness and/or appreciation of sculpture

  • Has an element of interactivity

  • Has an element of public engagement.

  • Is a unique approach to sculpture and/or pushes the boundaries of sculpture today.

Artists can enter up to three works for consideration. Artists can also enter new works or concepts for works as long as they have a track record of completing projects and can provide a detailed description of what they are proposing to do with images of previous projects and possible sketches of proposed work.

Unfortunately at this time we can only accept entries from UK Artists Only. 

This is free to enter and will be for an exhibition in July 2019.
