Call for Entries

9th - 16th August 2013
By far one of the most exhilarating aspects of the Cork Street Open Exhibitions is the surprising synergy and cohesive feel of unity that is achieved in spite of the extremely diverse and eclectic collection of artwork presented in a wide range of mediums.

A selection panel of five jurors viewed nearly 2,000 submissions, distilling the entries to just under 200 artworks. Everything the jury selects after a stringent 2 stage judging process, whether iPad paintings, egg tempera landscapes, resin sculptures or large format photographs is then hung together in harmony, offering visitors an exciting visual symphony.

Not only is the artwork diverse, the experience and reputation of the artists is equally varied providing an opportunity for collectors to purchase art ranging from £110 to over £10,000. A wire mesh sculpture by the well-established David Begbie, may cast its velvet shadow beside the painting of a debuting young artist or an emerging octogenarian.

The first Cork Street Open Exhibition was launched six years ago. The mission was two fold, to give emerging and established artists worldwide a platform for showing their work in the heart of London's art dealing centre and to raise funds for charity.

There has never been a theme for the August Cork Street Open Exhibition; other than the literal interpretation of contemporary of this time. Artists were able to submit up to 6 entries as long as they were created within the past 18 months.

Exhibition runs 9th - 16th August 2013 Daily from 10-6
