Thorpe Market Church is a CHURCH & RURAL ARTS VENUE in North Norfolk and is going to be host to a very special anonymous fundraising exhibition/sale of original, postcard-sized artworks in 2 & 3 dimensions to raise funds for professional quality audio visual facilities at the venue. The original artworks will be created and donated by established and up-and-coming artists from all over the country. We are also inviting well known artists with a connection to Norfolk to submit and support this rural initiative.
Entries are invited from all established, emerging & amateur artists. The brief is simple: all entries (up to a max. of 3 per person) must be on card, 6 inches by four inches (15 x 10 cm) and in any ORIGINAL medium including drawing, painting, printmaking, photography, collage, glass, ceramics and assemblage. The church is well known for its wildlife churchyard conservation scheme. Themes reflecting ecological concerns & reflections, including challenging submissions are welcome.
Closing date for entries Friday 27th September 2019.
“6by4” will be held as an exhibition for 3 days at Thorpe Market Church on October 18th – 20th 2019.
Potential buyers will be able to view the anonymous postcards on-line from early October. This is a great opportunity for young and emerging talent to be shown alongside mid-career and established artists. It is also a great chance for art lovers and collectors to purchase a hidden gem from an unusual rural ‘Gothic Revival’ architectural gem.
