2012 Christmas Showcase: Submissions now open!

We are calling for expressions of interest for original and well made contemporary jewellery for  the Studio 20/17 annual Christmas showcase. Opening 3rd December 2012 and running through until Christmas Eve, it provides an excellent opportunity to showcase and sell new work during this busy period.

Selected artists are required to provide a MINIMUM of 5 works. Ideally, work would be able to be restocked when purchased. Selected artists will be required to contribute a fee of $38 each to help cover some of the costs of installation and opening night celebrations.

Your expression of interest should be sent ELECTRONICALLY and include:
–         One page CV
–         Artist Statement (the theme behind the work, inspirations, materials etc)
–         Up to 5 JPEG images (either of the work you intend to submit, or previous work, with a detailed description of the work you intend to submit). PLEASE keep image sizes under 500kb.
–         Number of works you intend to submit (with materials and pricing info – RRP please, please note: Studio 20/17 takes 50% commission on retail price). Please note this information is to give an idea and does not need to be finalised.
–         All images must have a title, date of work, materials and photo credit.

IMPORTANT INFO:
The artist is wholly responsibly for the cost of postage to and from the gallery. Please make sure you provide a return self address post satchel when you send your work as this ensures speedy return of your work once the show has finished.  Please note that the gallery is closed from Christmas day until 23rd January so work will be returned when the gallery re-opens.
