Artist Notice Board

HOW TO Take part in h.Art

Would you like to be part of h.Art? If you are an artist living or working in Herefordshire or close to the County border (within 5 miles) and want to take part, read on for info on what to do and when.

What to do NOW - Artists and venues who have decided to be part of a group venue start talking and searching for each other. You can do this by getting your CALL OUTS to Mel to add to this Artist Notice board and to include in the ENewsletters. The E Newsletters are sent out to all artists and venue organisers who have asked to be included on the list. If you'd like to be on the artist/venue contact list or have a 'call out', please email me:  mel@h-art.org.uk

MARCH - Artists & Gallery profile registration

All artists and Galleries who wish to be involved in h.Art must complete an online form, found in the Take Part section and pay their Artist or Gallery Fee, this will give you an online profile on the h.Art website, details below.

MARCH Stage 1 registration - between Mon 1st to Wed 31st March

All Artists wishing to take part in h.Art put their online profile on the website. Cost option of £27 for four images and basic contact information or £35 for eight images and more detailed information about you and your work and outlets.

All Galleries wishing to take part in h.Art put their online profile on the website. Cost £45. Galleries are considered to be businesses open most of the year and hold continuous or rolling exhibitions/shows.

 

APRIL Stage 2 registration - between Thurs 1st to Thurs 29th April. A ‘Venue Organiser’ (includes individual studio artists) from each venue fills in the online form, see Take Part - and completes all details and makes the final payment by Thurs 29 April. Costs per venue vary depending on what size space you choose to have in the printed guide. One artist opening in their own venue would pay £180 for a sixth of a page. All other venues (including Galleries), can choose to pay a fee of £360 for a sixth of a page and upwards, up to £1500 for a full page.  You choose how you split the fee between your group.  Check out your latest ENewsletter, sent 6pm Thurs 28 Jan. If you can 't see it in your email or junk email or would like to be added to the contact list who receive them Contact: mel@h-art.org.uk

REFUNDS - I know artists will feel apprehensive about committing their money to h.Art during March/April. I promise, along with the h.Art Advisory Group, to assess the situation towards the end of April. If planning for the event in September is looking uncertain in the first week of May, the event will be cancelled and everyone will have a full refund at that point.

h.Art Emerging Artist Bursary

h.Art offers two bursaries to emerging professional artists with the aim of supporting those who have chosen to live and work in the County and who wish to take part in h.Art but can’t afford to.

The bursary is for the value of £215, it’s a non-cash prize offering you two ways of taking part;

You can open your own space/studio and have a 1/6-page advert entry in the printed guide your online artist profile will include eight images of your work and more detailed information about you and your work and outlets.

OR

You can be part of a group of your choice. Your proportion of the group entry fee will be covered, up to the value of £180 and your Artist Fee (£35 online profile) will be covered.

IMPORTANT:
