Are you an artist living in or around Brixton?
Do you want to exhibit your work to the local community?
Entry is open for the Brixton Blog and Bugle Summer Art Show. Now becoming a fixture in Brixton’s cultural calendar, this popular show attracts hundreds of visitors.
It is open to any artist – professional or self-taught – who is at least 16 years old and is based in or around (a short bus ride away from) Brixton.
You can submit up to two works. Each work must be no larger than one metre square.
To enter, all you have to do is send up to three digital photos of each work to firstname.lastname@example.org
Please entitle the email “Summer Art Show 2022” and include your name, address, email, contact phone number, social media, the title and a brief description of the work, including dimensions.
The closing date for entries is Friday 20 May 2022
All selected works will be exhibited in the Summer Art Show in the Brixton Tate Library on Windrush Square from 4 to 26 July. You can offer your work for sale if you choose – about a third of all entries were sold last year.
The winner will be decided by a people’s vote and will receive a unique custom designed award; a voucher from Brockwell Art Services worth £250; and an exhibition in the popular Lounge on Atlantic Road.
Cherise Hewett, who won last year’s popular vote, saw her work shown in The Lounge and in Peckham as a result.
Her solo show ArtSvdMe at Brixton library this month combined sculpture, textiles and printmaking.
