Festival of Art Exhibition 2024

OPEN CALL TO ARTISTS

We are excited to announce we are now accepting submissions for our Festival of Art Exhibition 2024 that will take over our Gallery from Saturday 7 - Sunday 22 September.

We are looking for 2D wall-based artists, working in any style or medium, to show in the Gallery space for the duration of the Festival. The exhibition will be at the heart of our Festival of Arts and Crafts which will kick off with a craft market on Saturday 7 - Sunday 8 September which will surround The Base building and will be the extravaganza to start the festivities.

In addition to the exhibition, we will also have taster workshops for visitors to get creative and have a go at learning something new whilst they are with us.

Eligibility:

- From within 40 mile radius of The Base

- Aged 18+

- Work in 2D form

We accept 2 submissions per person. Please make sure your work is labelled clearly and has D rings and rope ready for hanging.

To apply to join us at the biggest dedicated arts and crafts event in West Berkshire in 2024, simply click the button below and complete the form. The deadline for applications is 8pm on Sunday 16 June.

We can’t wait to hear from you and see your amazing artwork!

Please note: The images you submit should be your own work and the work that you are wanting to exhibit in our Gallery space. We will not accept work that has previously been submitted for exhibitions in our Gallery. There will be a 20% commission taken on any sales that are made during The Base’s Festival of Arts & Crafts.

All successful exhibitors will be notified by email no later than Friday 28 June. If you have not heard anything after this date, take this as an indication that you have been unsuccessful.

If your work is selected, you will need to be able to deliver it to The Base on Sunday 1 September between 10pm - 1pm. The collection & wrapping date for artwork is Monday 23 September 10am -1pm.
