Humber to the Wash Open Exhibition 2011 – Call for Artists
This summer The Ropewalk Gallery in Barton-upon-Humber will once again host an open exhibition of artists from throughout the region.
The biennial show, Humber to The Wash, which opens in June, will feature the work of artists from East Yorkshire and Hull, northern Lincolnshire and Lincolnshire and Norfolk.
This will be the third Humber to the Wash exhibition held at The Ropewalk. The last exhibition, held in 2009 exhibition attracted around 4000 visitors and showcased 130 works of art from more than 100 entrants.
“The selectors who have the unenviable task of choosing this year’s show are Pocklington-based mixed media artist Hilary Angle and Scunthorpe artist and tutor Letitia Thompson,” said the Maltkiln Road gallery’s Exhibition officer, Richard Hatfield.
The exhibition will be held in all three galleries at the Maltkiln Road venue and in 2009 just under 280 works were submitted for the show.
Once again entry forms for the show, along with detailed instructions, are available online at www.the-ropewalk.co.uk and artists wishing to enter should bring in their work to The Ropewalk between May 27 and May 30. There will be an entry fee of £3 per entry and an entry form must be completed in advance.
Prize sponsors for this year’s exhibition include Grimsby Institute, The Proudfoot Group and Cooke Webster & Co.
The exhibition runs from June 18 through to September 4 and as with all exhibitions at The Ropewalk there is no admission charge.
