Frequently Asked Questions for Artists

Who can apply?

Anyone can apply but we hope to mainly include local artists.

How do I apply?

Please select “Apply to join us” from the menu on our website.  We need your personal details and some details on your art.  You will also need to upload around 3-5 images of your work that you feel accurately describe your artistic style.  It would be helpful to see a finished piece in context and a close-up of the detailing.

How much does it cost to apply?
Nothing to apply but if you are accepted it is £50 which covers our marketing, printed materials and venue hire costs.

What is the deadline for submitting an application?

The deadline for September 2018 is the 30th of April.

What is the application team looking for when they select work.  

The SSAS team are looking for work that is well executed, unique and shows that the artist has a strong and consistent style.  We only select from a range of original or limited edition pieces to keep the interest high.

How do I know that my application has been successful?

We will contact all successful artists via email within 30 days of submission.  If you have not heard back in that time you were unsuccessful at this time. 

Is there a minimum age?

There is no minimum age but if you are under 16 please get the consent of a parent or guardian.  

What happens if I am accepted?

We will send you an invoice for your £50 admin fee and details of how we curate your work for the exhibitions. We will add you to our mailing list and let you know when our next meeting is.
