WINTER EXHIBITION 2022 OPEN CALL

THE GALLERY SOCIETY WINTER EXHIBITON

OPEN CALL FOR ART

DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSIONS 22ND NOVEMBER

EXIBITION JANUARY 2022

VENUE TO BE ANNOUCED SHORTLY

Titled RE-KNEW-ED, The Gallery Society’s winter exhibition is an exciting opportunity to get your work shown in a fantastic gallery space in Edinburgh! We are looking for works of all forms by Edinburgh-based student artists… painting, sculpture, installation, photography, performance, written work, audio work – submit anything you have that draws on the theme of RE-KNEW-ED in some way.

Opening shortly after the new year and during refreshers week, we want to display work that draws on the renewed perspective we now have on life as we emerge from the pandemic, the idea of re-knowing life as we knew it and how we may use this as an opportunity to restart, reinvent, repurpose and get to re-know our world. We want you to interpret this how you see fit and be as creative, imaginative and ambitious as possible!! We want to hear your ideas, if your work doesn’t fit into any of the categories on the submission form or requires any extra info/questions, please use the extra comments box to let us know and we can discuss options!


After the success of our previous exhibition Loose Thread (which you can find a guided tour, trailer, and online showcase of on our website), we expect a high number of submissions. Selection of work will be made based on which best fit the theme and the space, given that the gallery won’t have space for everything (even though we wish it did)! We will notify you if your work will be shown within a week of the deadline and any work we are not able to show in person we hope to include in the online version of the exhibition on our website!

Entry Requirements:

  • You must be a student/amateur artist
  • You may provide images of up to 3 pieces of work.
  • You must be a paying member of The Gallery Society (non-members must pay a small fee to show their work if selected).
  • Your artwork must be available from the 15th-18th January 2022.
  • You must be available to deliver your artwork to the gallery in person on the morning of the 15th Jan 2022.
  • Your work must be delivered to us fully prepared to be installed/hung with D-plates or any equivalent that is suitable for hanging wires. 

We are so excited to see you work and if you have any further questions don’t hesitate to DM us!
