Town Hall Exhibition: June 12 – July 9

Applications for Town Hall Exhibition now closed

Primarily aimed at work that will hang, there is space for both small and large artworks. 3D pieces are accepted if self-standing against a wall or can hang. Limited space is available in the courtyard for work suitable for outdoors in a public setting such as large sculpture, furniture, etc. (contact us to discuss this).

The Town Hall takes a 25% commission on sales.

Work is displayed throughout the foyer and cafe. A lot of visitors will see this throughout the four week exhibition.

Window Trail: June 30 – July 9

An art trail in windows of 62 businesses in prime locations.

Show your work in a window trail of art throughout Hebden Bridge for a week before Open Studios.

This is a great opportunity to promote your work and to help promote the Open Studios event itself.

We can include large and small work, 2D and 3D. Prints are fine as are good quality, framed photos of your work if you make jewellery, sculpture, etc.

Your contact details will be on display to lead to sales. We are not making arrangements with the venues to sell directly through them.

Write a blog feature

Blog and get a subsidised professional photoshoot

If you can write a small piece (200 – 300 words) for our blog we will promote you and your work through our website, social media and mailshots.

We have an arrangement with photographer Lucy Cartwright to visit your studio to spend 30 - 45 minutes taking photos of you at work, headshot, portrait, close up of hands making, etc. at a heavily subsidised rate.

A small number of free photoshoots may be possible for artists unable to pay anything.
