Call for Exhibitors: Open Houses and Makers Fair at SAT 2018
Saltaire Arts Trail 2018 will take place on the FIRST May Bank Holiday in 2018
That's Saturday 5th to Monday 7th May - and we're looking for exhibitors NOW.
We're looking for designer/makers to show in the Makers Fair at Victoria Hall and for visual artists working in a range of media for our village-wide gallery of Open Houses to show at Saltaire Arts Trail 2018 on 5, 6 and 7 May.
Saltaire Arts Trail offers an imaginative visual arts programme, celebrating the village’s rich heritage, and offering opportunities to both emerging and established artists. SAT prides itself in reaching out to new audiences and making art accessible to all by using imaginative venues - such as Saltaire homes, the internationally recognised Salts Mill and outdoor spaces around Saltaire, to display visual art outside of traditional settings, as well as delivering new exhibitions and commissions. Each year we showcase the work of over 100 artists and welcome around 6000 visitors.
We are currently inviting applications from artists to show at two strands of the event: the Open Houses and the Makers’ Fair. See below:
THE MAKERS FAIR
A selected showcase of innovative and original contemporary craft and design in Victoria Hall, Saltaire right at the heart of The UNESCO World Heritage Site, during the annual Arts Trail weekend.
THE OPEN HOUSES
A village-wide gallery in the unique public and private of Saltaire. The Open Houses make use of the Grade II listed mill cottages, at the invitation of the owners, to present contemporary art in a domestic/heritage setting.
