18 August – 2 September

Depot is participating in Artwave, the annual festival of artists and makers from Lewes, Seaford, Newhaven and surrounding villages. This year, Depot’s contribution takes the form of an open exhibition in our Studio, showcasing the work of creative local people.


Call for Entries

We are inviting artists of all ages and levels of experience to submit works of art for inclusion in the exhibition. Artwave is open to all, making it an inclusive, accessible and diverse experience for those taking part and visiting.

This year, Depot takes its inspiration from the Krzysztof Kieslowski film Three Colours: Blue, starring Juliette Binoche, screening at Depot on the first day of the festival.  Taking ‘blue’ as the starting point, your work can be inspired by the colour blue, or use blue as a theme. Artwork can be in any medium. 

Entries must be submitted by 17:00 on Thursday 2 August and will be selected for inclusion in the exhibition by a committee. Successful artists will be notified on 6 August and exhibits must be delivered to Depot on Saturday 11 August. Hanging artwork must be suitably mounted with picture string at the back, or we will not be able to exhibit the work. 

Please send an email to events@lewesdepot.org, including: a jpeg image, your name/age/town, your artwork’s title/medium/dimensions and a short biography (maximum 75 words). Individuals can enter up to three pieces for consideration.
