The inventive Dunoon Burgh Hall team want everyone who has ever been involved in the Burgh Hall to take part in a Postcard Project: Everyone is an Artist.
This will be a group show at in Dunoon Burgh Hall.
Anyone who been involved with the Hall is invited to contribute an A6 postcard with an original artwork on it – to be exhibited in the show and to be sold for £15 as part of the Burgh Hal’s Christmas Exhibition programme to raise funds for the building.
All postcards submitted will be accepted, although there is a maximum number of 6 entries per person.
The reason why each artwork must be signed on the back and not the front is that the artwork is anonymous – visitors to the Burgh Hall will be encouraged to buy work without knowing who the artist is until after it has been purchased.
There could be a valuable hidden gem, or just a beautiful, thought provoking piece of work that you will cherish for ever.
Work can be submitted in any medium as long as it is wall mountable – painting, drawing, original print, textile, photograph, doodle etc.
Work is welcome from artists, photographers, textile designers, filmmakers, cartoonists, illustrators and from children – but, please, not from animals.
- Artworks must be on A6 size only – 105mm x 148 mm.
- Work must be signed on the back, NOT the front – and with contact details if the artist wants any post-event information.
- Entries must be received at the Hall by Monday 18 th November.
All artworks should be posted to: Everyone is an Artist; Dunoon Burgh Hall Trust; 195 Argyll Street; Dunoon, Argyll PA23 7DD.
The Exhibition of unique, original and remarkable work will be on display from 21th November – 7th December, Thursday-Saturday, from 12pm-3pm.
There is a Private Viewing on Wednesday 20th November, from 6pm-7.30pm. Anyone who has submitted a postcard is eligible and invited to be there.
