Gallery selection procedure
Thank you for your interest in the New Ashgate Gallery. While we programme most of our new artists and makers from solicited studio and exhibition visits, we are happy to consider your work. Please keep in mind we are a contemporary art gallery focusing on professional, high quality art and craft and we ask you to follow our selection procedure below, to be considered for exhibition:
If your work is suitable for the gallery's objectives for exhibitions, please submit your proposal by email and include the following:
• 3-5 digital images of your work (jpegs)
• Short CV
• Price list
• Short artist statement
• Website link, although this is not a substitute for images.
Please do not post material or send samples of your work. We programme exhibitions 12-18 months in advance. The Contemporary Craft Collection is programmed six months in advance.
An open call for our spring Rising Stars exhibition (craft students and recent graduates) takes place in every autumn and further information will be posted on our website.
Please address your correspondence to firstname.lastname@example.org, stating 'Exhibition Proposal - New Ashgate Gallery' in your subject field.
We receive a high number of proposals and while we consider all proposals, we only reply to artists whose work will be able to exhibit. Please allow us four weeks to reply to your email. If we wish to view your work after seeing the images, we will contact you to arrange a visit or will invite you to visit the gallery. We regret that we are unable to view work without a pre-arranged appointment and without first viewing your work digitally, as explained above.
