Following on from last years success, 'Take me I'm yours', you are invited to take part in an exhibition, Post It, to be held at the Atkinson Art Gallery in Southport UK from August 2nd – September 2nd 2006.The exhibition will include work by artists and designers from all over the world and we would like you to take part too.
Here's what you need to do:
At www.postitpostit.com is a list of art works owned by the Atkinson Gallery. You need to pick one and make your own version of it. Just take the title and make a piece of work based on it; you don't need to know what the original looks like.
Here's the catch. You have to work on A5 size! So, the work has to be 148mm x 210mm.
You are allowed to work in any media, be it photography, print, paint, pencil, felt tip, collage, whatever. The work you make will be hung on the wall by a fold back clip.
These will only hold a certain amount of weight, so bear that in mind. Other options might be available for certain circumstances. Please contact me if you need to discuss these. If you are working with paint or any other wet media you should try and keep the work flat rather than let it wrinkle.
You are allowed to submit as many pieces of work as you like. They can all be based on one title or they might all be different. You are guaranteed to have at least one of your submissions in the exhibition.
The room we have for the exhibition is 45 x 25 feet, or 13.8 x 7.3 metres. And is room number 2 if you are able to visit.
The following MUST be on the back of EVERY entry:
• YOUR NAME
• YOUR COUNTRY
• YOUR PLACE OF EDUCATION [IF IN EDUCATION]
• YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS [NOT COMPULSORY, BUT WILL HELP]
• YOUR CHOSEN TITLE. [THE ONE FROM THE LIST]
There will be an online catalogue of the exhibition in which your work will appear, . The details above will appear online, unless you say otherwise on the back of your work.
There will hopefully, but not definitely be a real catalogue, [a book] published at a later date. By entering you are agreeing to your work being reproduced in black and white in the book, should it be published, and also in colour on the website.
As much as I would love to keep all the work entered I understand most of you will want your work back. If you do want it back please send a stamped, addressed, protective envelope along with your submission.
After the exhibition I will try my best to have it shown somewhere else, this like the book is not a certainty but I will try.
The exhibition preview is August 1st 2006 7.30pm – 9pm.
