What are your childhood Memories?

What are your childhood Memories?

Atkins Gallery Open Exhibitions return this summer with a new brief to inspire local artists!

This year's theme is Childhood Memories a broad and all encompassing title which can be interpreted in many different ways. The title encourages expressive reminiscence and allows the artist to draw upon personal memories or explore a more generalised nostalgia. You might want to think about people you have known, things you have seen, experiences you have enjoyed. You could consider special occasions or milestones in your life; favourite colours, foods or toys from your youth; or changing styles and fashions when you were growing up. You might create a piece highlighting people, places or products that are no longer with us. You might decide to paint an old photograph or draw a collection of childhood relics; or you might sketch a place you have visited or create a collage using ephemera from the year you were born!
There are many possibilities and submissions interpreting the theme in a variety of media are welcome.

If you are interested in exhibiting in the Open Exhibition please download a copy of the Exhibitor Pack. Please read the information thoroughly, the back page is to be filled in and returned to us along with your submitted pieces. Artists can submit up to three pieces for £12 (instructions on making the online payment is included in the pack) and artwork is to be submitted between 26th – 30th June and be collected after the exhibition between 1st – 4th August 2017.

A Lunchtime Launch is on Saturday 8th July to kick-start the exhibition, giving visitors the opportunity to meet the artists involved and discuss the artwork on display. The Lunchtime Launch will be free entry and welcomes everyone, with refreshments available from Café Español
