To Take Part in h.Art - online forms will OPEN on 7 February, and CLOSE 9 March, don’t miss it…

To be involved you need to get on board and complete TWO online forms, both OPEN on 7 February.  Final payment and completion of the both forms are needed by 9 March CLOSING Day

FORM 1 -  the Artist Profile form or the *Gallery Profile form (h.Art definition *Galleries are considered to be businesses open most of the year and hold continuous or rolling exhibitions/shows of various artist’s work)

FORM 2 - to be completed by the venue organiser. The 'venue organiser' can be a single artist in a studio; a nominated person in a group or a gallery owner. The Venue form ​is all about the venue & event details for h.Art Week including directions; access; what's happening; who's participating. It's used for the printed guide and venue/event information on the website. The image or images you choose to use on the Venue form is/are used in the printed guide on your venue entry- you choose which size entry and cost option is best for your venue, see fee structure further below.  It's always a good idea to use images which will actually be on show in September, visitors tend to want to see those artworks.  The Venue Organiser for a group needs all of their participating artists to have completed Form 1, before they can complete Form 2. Gallery owners complete Form 2 as well, but should have completed their Gallery Profile first. Please note if you cannot open for the minimum core hours of 11am - 5pm for nine days for whatever reason, your entry will be in the Varied Openings section. 

Who needs to complete what form? Please fill in the right form for you.

  • Individual Artists – complete Form 1 to create your online Artist Profile, you can choose from two price options. Then complete Form 2 for your studio/venue, see costs and details of what’s sort of thing is asked on the both forms further below.

 

  • Artists showing in one venue in groups of any size – each artist in the group completes Form 1 to create their online Artist Profile, you can choose from two price options, see costs and details asked on the forms further below. Once all artists have completed their Form 1, nominate one person from your group to complete Form 2. Nb All artists involved in groups still need to be aware of and take responsibility for the content included on Form 2.

 

  • Galleries – complete Form 1 to create your online Gallery Profile. Then complete Form 2 for details about who and what you are showcasing for h.Art, see costs and details of what’s sort of thing is asked on the both forms further below. *Galleries are considered to be businesses open most of the year and hold continuous or rolling exhibitions/shows of various artist’s work. Artists you show, don’t necessarily need to have an Artist profile page, but you or the artist can choose to complete an Artist Profile form, if you feel the link with your gallery will be beneficial to you both.

 

Nb Completion of Form 1 only, gives you an online presence on the h.Art website ONLY. To fully be part of h.Art you need to be linked to a venue e.g., your studio venue, your group venue.  This involves completion of both forms, which includes you in the event; the printed guide; use of the h.Art logo/branding; publicity material and signage for September and at the Christmas weekends this year.

Deadline for completing both forms and paying in full is 9 March
