This is a project that I helped with and participated in last year (photo gallery of last years's show courtesy of Sung Ha Kang) and am really looking forward to doing so again for this year! Thanks to UK Art Department Chair, Ben Withers and rock-star Fiber Arts Professor Arturo Sandoval for their generosity and assistance in helping make this opportunity happen then and now!

Participation open for all for all current attendees of open life drawing sessions! See link at bottom to reserve your space.

Volunteers are needed to help with the following:

  • Reception setup and coordination
  • Registration and division of gallery space for individual artists
  • Distribution of promotional material, posters and show cards
General Information:

The show will be "salon style" there will be a 4" wide black paper mount wrapped around the gallery walls - this is your display area (exception some may request one of three or four floor stands for objects or booklet display). Space will be allocated based on total number committing to display. Last year everyone had approximately a 10' x 48" area to display in (enough for several images - bring more than you need to hang so we can be sure and fill the walls). See photo gallery of last year if this unclear.

You will also need to:
  • produce a short artist statement (to fit on a letter size page (max) & mount with your art
  • sign and turn in the simple release form before displaying your work

  1. The South Bohemia Art Gallery is one set by concept and the objectives to enable and encourage arts and creativity, which are presented in other large scale programmes in external venues from the gallery base. These have included the Independents Liverpool Biennial and Liverpool European Capital of Culture 2008.
