October 2024 Artist Open Call - Small is Beautiful

We are thrilled to announce our second open call for artists to participate in a special exhibition celebrating the beauty of the detail in our world. The exhibition, titled 'Small is Beautiful,' will showcase the works of UK artists who capture the beauty that resides in life's small moments.

Submissions are open to artists working in all mediums, including painting, sculpture, photography, mixed media, and more. Artists are encouraged to submit up to three pieces of work that reflect the theme of 'Small is Beautiful.'

The exhibition will run from 1st-31st October at Happy & Glorious, on Burgate in Canterbury. A private view will be held on 4th October from 6pm to 8pm, and friends and family of artists are welcome to attend.

We accept submissions from all over the country; if you can get your work to us safely and arrange collection, we would be delighted to consider it. All accepted works will be available for purchase, and Happy & Glorious will take a 45% commission on all sales. H&G will also cover the cost of shipping and delivery for sold works.

Submission deadline is 2nd September. To submit your work, please complete the online submission form. The submission fee is £10 per piece of work.

We look forward to showcasing your artistic talents and celebrating  the beauty of small things with you in our October exhibition!
