Please note that this year we have made some changes!

Read the following carefully:

Because we are actively fundraising to find the money to replace our ageing heating system, we are asking those who are willing to donate the full price of sold works to The Courthouse Gallery.

If you do not choose to do this, please make this clear on your application. If your work sells, The Courthouse will take the usual commission of 25%

The exhibition is Open To All.

Artists can submit only one work per person. This work must be original and produced within the past 12 months.

Additional submission information & requirements:

  • Artists can submit ONE 2D A5-sized (21x15cm) works in media including drawing, prints, painting, photography and mixed media artworks. Small sculpture works can also be submitted by arrangement.

  • The deadline for accepting submissions is 2nd December 2017. We cannot accept anything after this date.
  • Artists must either provide a stamped addressed envelope so we can return any unsold works, or collect any unsold artwork by the end of January 2018. If uncollected, the work will be put up for sale and the proceeds retained by  the Gallery.
