“Space to Grow”

An exhibition opportunity to scale up your work!

Opening Saturday 14th April to 29th April, 2018
At the Barn Gallery, Bield at Blackruthven near Perthshire
Credit card facility available. Commission 20%

We have been offered a large exhibition space at the Christian Retreat Centre near Tibbermore in Perthshire, about 4 miles from the centre of Perth. The grounds include a walled garden, a labyrinth and a water feature and beautiful big trees. The Barn Gallery is well used and has been the venue for the Perthshire Open Studio showcase exhibition for the last 5 or more years.

This is where we held the Pots and Baskets exhibition with the Scottish Basket Makers Circle about 9 years ago. It is a large space, with underfloor heating and plenty of parking. However, it will need invigilating and advertising more widely than other well-known galleries.

As the space is so big this is an opportunity to have an open exhibition and display larger pieces, or groups of pieces that need a bigger floor/plinth area. So we can scale up our work and take the “Space to Grow” challenge!

We suggest a maximum number of 8 pieces and if there is too much work entered it is possible that some work from some exhibitors would be held in reserve.

The organisers reserve the right not to display anything which would be unsafe – especially important with larger work.

Application closing date Sunday February 11th 2018
