CALL OUT FOR WILTSHIRE CREATIVE 2020 EXHIBITION

Please follow the link to the submission form. We will update the date changes as soon as we know what these are. In the meantime please do apply. 

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. Building on the success of last year’s Summer Open Exhibition, we are once more providing a platform for the talent which flourishes in Wiltshire and adjoining counties.

This exhibition will showcase work by artists at any stage of their career. 

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.

  • Description of the medium used
