Wiltshire Creative is a new pan-arts organisation that brings together the energy and aspirations of Salisbury Arts Centre, Salisbury International Arts Festival and Salisbury Playhouse. It is an ambitious and innovative joint arts offer that shapes and strengthens a future for audiences, artists and participants.

Based in the city of Salisbury Wiltshire Creative draws audiences from across the county and beyond. As part of the visual arts programme we seek to showcase work that has been created locally. This year we are looking forward to introducing the first ever Wiltshire Creative Summer Open Exhibition. 

This exhibition will provide a platform for artists at any stage of their career based in Wiltshire and adjoining counties. The Summer Open Exhibition dates are 22nd July – 7th September. 

We are looking for work in any media across 2D and wall-hung shallow relief (up to 70 mm in depth.) These can include painting, drawing, photography, textiles, wood, mixed-media, ceramics, glass etc.

Artists should submit:

  • A maximum of two images together with the exact dimensions of the work
  • The selling price of the work which must include Wiltshire Creative’s commission of 45%. (VAT is deducted by Wiltshire Creative from this commission)

  • 25 word artist’s statement
