Woolgather Art Prize 2011

(1 post)
  1. It’s not avant-garde, it’s avant give
    Open call for submissions: Deadline 15th January

    The Woolgather Art Prize is an experimental showcase of contemporary artists based in West Yorkshire. Aiming to provide an accessible platform for artworks and hoping to celebrate the unresolved, the transitional, possibly the ridiculous. Ultimately championing the ‘what if’ ?

    Submission is free and a selection of shortlisted artists’ work will be presented in a Leeds city centre show in the spring of 2011. Throughout the exhibition the works will be voted for by the viewing public, and then prizes of £500, £250 and £150 will be awarded to the chosen artists. The money is a gesture to assist towards the ongoing endeavors of a creative lifestyle.
    All shortlisted artists will contribute to a collective development in the form of a publication for the show, as a means of creating a more involving illustration of the event. An engaging website will also be available, aiming to create an active dialogue between the artists and audiences through videos, blogs and comments.
    The project is self-funded by artists and assisted by the generosity of others. In keeping with this spirit all the exhibited works will be given away to the public.

    “It is not about career. It’s about believing in something, it’s about prosperity and it’s about caring and emphasizing and wanting to create the best, the most true to life, the most real”. (River Phoenix: 1991)
