Sculpture Trail at Saltaire Festival 2017
Deadline: 30/06/2017 | Published: 04/06/2017 | City: Saltaire Villiage World Heritage Site | Country: United Kingdom | Saltaire Inspired
An opportunity to showcase sculpture, ceramics and glass for sale or commission within a popular Open Gardens Trail as part of the annual Saltaire Festival. Saturday 9th and Sunday 10th September 2017
Saltaire Open Gardens Trail takes place over the opening weekend of the two-week annual Saltaire Festival - this year on 9th & 10th September.
Local residents open the back yards and gardens of their Grade II listed cottages to share with visitors the wide variety of planting and creativity within the limited outside spaces in the UNESCO World Heritage village.
We are looking for artists working in any 3D medium suitable for external display to show work in one of around twelve small garden spaces.
This two-day event is a a major element of the Festival Opening Weekend and coincides with the popular Makers Fair at Victoria Hall, run by Saltaire Inspired, who also produce the Saltaire Art Trail in May.
Because of the nature of the Grade II listed architecture in the village, most spaces are small - many no more than enclosed back-yards, so the event is suitable for sculptural ceramics and glass as well as sculpture.
Work may be for sale, and the footfall for the event is very good.
There is a small fee to artists of £20 to contribute to publicity and administration costs for this volunteer-run event, but no commission is taken on sales.Contact the curator
