includes painting, mixed media, sculptural and functional works in glass,
ceramics, textile, wood and metal, and a select collection of jewellery.

including emerging, mid-career and senior artists.
Please submit up to 6 images, in JPEG format (no larger than 500KB ea) as attachments, to firstname.lastname@example.org along with the required information below.
Please Note: If you have a website you may simply send us the URL of the images you wish to submit & the link to your site instead of sending attachments.
