Artist Call Out

Friday 11th May 2018

Inkwell wants your artwork! As part of our fundraising efforts we are bringing back our annual Mayday open exhibition which invites all local artists to exhibit their work in our galleryor come along to support other artists within our area!


The mayday exhibition at Inkwell is open to everyone: from service users, students, staff, volunteers, Inkwell supporters and new faces that would like their chance to be part of this event. So we can keep track of how many artists are wishing to submit artwork into the exhibition and curate the show we would like you to let us know via email ([email protected]) how many pieces you wish to submit, or alternatively sign your name on the signup sheet at Inkwell.


This exhibition will allow artists that work in both 3d and 2d to be involved.

For 2D work we are charging £5 per artwork and a maximum of 3 pieces per artist, which will cover an area no larger than 1 square metre in total.

We will endeavour to hang and includeALL pieces of work submitted, and the show will be professionally curated to show off each artwork to its best. Please be aware that due to the popularity of this event we may not be able to show all three pieces from every artist. If this is the case any fees for work not includedwill be refunded. Priority to new work that has not been exhibited at inkwell before is given.

Stalls for 3D work will be available to purchase at £10for the duration of the exhibition launch. There are limited stall spaces available so please  email the exhibitions team to request a stall ahead of time. Stalls are allocated on a first come first served basis. Artists renting the stalls will also choose one or two of their pieces to be shown in our glass cabinets  which  will be displayed for the full duration of the exhibition.

Please note retail price of any artwork sold at the exhibition includes 20% commission to inkwell.
