Sculpture Showcase, Landmark 2022
We are delighted that February 2022 sees the return of the Surrey Sculpture Society to the Landmark Arts Centre in Teddington. Thwarted last year by Covid, this year we fully intend to run a bumper event!
Saturday, 26 February 2022
Sunday, 6 March 2022
Open 10am to 5pm every day, FREE ENTRY!
Previously just a weekend exhibition, this year, we have a full nine days in which to show case not only our work but also our talent and our creative practice within the historic buildings and grounds of this Teddington landmark. This is a rare opportunity to exhibit 2D and 3D work together and, with such an outstanding opportunity, we hope that every one of our artists will take the opportunity to apply for this, our Sculpture Showcase.
This year, Kate Viner will be exhibiting with us as our Signature Artist and will be sharing insights into her practice during the event.
Applications: 2D and 3D. Applications will be accepted for indoor 3D work of any size – as long as a work will fit through the doors, anything goes! For those of you who also produce two-dimensional work, then as long as you submit a 3D application as well, we would love to see your applications to exhibit your drawings and paintings with us too. (There will be limited space for 2D exhibits which are over 90cm wide)
(We will be able to exhibit 2-3 sculptures outdoors. However, the outdoor space is not secure and pieces will therefore be exhibited at the artist’s own risk. If you would like to have a piece of work considered for the outdoor space, then please contact me directly, email@example.com, for more information.)
Showcase your talent. We genuinely want this event to be a sculpture showcase and as such, we want to invite our members to demonstrate their outstanding talent to the public both to inform and to inspire the local community. Within the usual list of volunteer tasks, you will therefore see two items asking for both “artists in action” and “demonstrators”. On weekdays, visitors will be able to watch our “Artists in Action” at work in the venue, whilst at weekends our “demonstrators” will give a more active demonstration of their sculptural practice, by presenting to an audience.
Be part of the team. This event is run solely by us and as such, we require stewarding throughout the event to manage the building, serve refreshments and operate our sales desk. Each exhibiting artist will be asked to undertake a minimum of two stewarding sessions (each session being 3.5 hours) over the course of the nine days with full training on the sales tools given to everyone beforehand. Please fill out one of the stewarding forms as well as your application to exhibit. This is a requirement for all applicants.
As usual, we ask you to submit very good quality photos of your sculptures. When you save your photos before uploading them, please name your photos “Surname_Firstname_Title.” (e.g. Jones_Michael_Flockofbirds.jpg) If you have any issues doing this, there is a handy guide on the SSS website https://www.surreysculpture.org.uk/publicityguide - Make sure you scroll down to see the full guidelines!
We are very much looking forward to receiving your applications by Thursday 9 December and I very much hope we all get to see each other at Landmark in February.
Many thanks and kind regards,
Caroline Wheaton - Exhibition Manager
