COMPETITION – OPEN CALL TO ARTISTS!

In April 2019 we proudly opened our doors for the first time with a taster exhibition featuring 25 Norfolk artists. It was a melting pot of creative minds and an eclectic mix of media, and it set the tone for a stonking first year of exhibitions, classes, workshops and events.

2019 was full of promise, and while 2020 sees our doors sadly closed, we want to celebrate our first year by announcing a competition, open to all artists, to produce an art piece for our ‘Wall of Gratitude’.

WALL OF GRATITUDE…
West Acre Gallery is a Crowdfunded project. Thanks to the donations of 40 backers we successfully raised £3,631 in our 2018 Crowdfunder campaign, and these funds paid for our start up costs and equipment. The Wall of Gratitude will give thanks to these 40 investors by including their names as a permanent fixture on the gallery’s walls.

COMPETITION SUBMISSIONS…
Anyone is welcome to take part in our Wall of Gratitude competition, using any medium in 2D.

We’re interested in submissions that:
a). explore the concepts of ‘gratitude’ and ‘community’
OR
b). include the names of our 40 Crowdfunder backers (we will give you these names)

We welcome artworks that explore both imagery /typography.
