Artists are being invited to submit work for this year’s Summer Open Art Exhibition at The Station, Richmond.

The Open Exhibition this year entitled InVisible: seeing below the surface is asking artists to enter original works in all mediums to fit in with the central theme.

The exhibition, which opens on Saturday, July 16 and runs until Saturday, September 3, will give artists the opportunity to provide their own interpretations of ‘Invisibility’.

“The title should provide plenty of scope for artists to respond in their own unique way to words like hidden, concealed, disguised, unseen, masked or obscured,” said curator Louise Atkinson.

Entries will be judged by industry specialists, including Simon Morris, conceptual writer-in-residence at Whitechapel Art Gallery, Sarah Brown, curator of temporary exhibitions at Leeds Art Gallery, journalist Nick Ahad and Simon Zimmerman from Hebe Media. They will judge a shortlist of 300 works, out of which 150 will be chosen for the seven-week exhibition. Artists will be able to sell any work on display and three prizes will be awarded among the finalists as well as an overall People’s Prize voted for by visitors.

Initial entry for InVisible is online and artists are able to submit up to three works for consideration. All 2D media is accepted, except photography. The deadline for entries is Friday, June 3.
