Cruthú Arts Festival is excited to be entering its fifth year in 2018 and as always, we strive to bring a diverse collection of visual art to Longford as part of our festival.
We are now releasing an open call for artists to participate in the main event and purpose of our programme. We are looking to incorporate a broad range of visual art forms, including painting, drawing, printmaking, sculpture, photography, illustration, textile, mixed media and film.
Exhibiting artists will be able to take advantage of pop up gallery spaces located in vacant retail units situated throughout the town. These spaces can be used to display existing works, house specially designed installations or they can be transformed into unique conceptual spaces. We are giving you a blank canvas – bring it to life.
Cruthú Arts Festival 2018 takes place from Thursday 26th July to Sunday 29th July in Longford. Every year, we receive a fantastic response to this open call, resulting in an eclectic mix of visual art displays which are hugely anticipated by festival visitors.
Submission process & criteria:
Artists who wish to apply for an exhibition space should send an email containing artist details,good quality images of the work to be displayed / proposals for installations and a link to artists portfolio.
Submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org with subject ‘Artist Open Call’
While we endeavour to facilitate as many artists as possible, the spaces are limited.
Submissions will be evaluated by Cruthú Arts Festival Committee and the final selection will be contacted by email.
Closing date for submissions is 31st May 2018.
We look forward to seeing your work, thank you in advance for your submissions and we hope you enjoy our 2018 festival.
