Call for entries – deadline 30 July

Depot is to join with artists and makers from across Lewes, Seaford, Newhaven and the surrounding rural areas as the annual Artwave festival returns.

As part of the festival (17 August to 1 September), Depot will hold an open exhibition of art created by the public.

The theme of the exhibition, to be held in Depot’s Studio, is ‘play’. Artists of all ages and levels of experience are invited to submit works of art inspired by the idea of play – think playful, frolicking, fun! The only limit is your creativity. Artworks can be in any medium.

How to enter:

Please email, including the following information:

  • Artwork’s title
  • Artist’s name, age, and town/village of residence
  • Details of the media used and the dimensions of the piece
  • A short biography of the artist (maximum 75 words)

Please attach a jpeg image of the artwork with your email. Note that we cannot accept the physical artwork itself at the judging stage; only once the artwork has been selected for exhibition.

Artworks will be considered by a judging panel at Depot and successful applicants will be notified by 2 August. Up to three artworks may be entered by an individual artist. All successful artworks must be mounted with picture string at the back. If artworks are not properly mounted, we will not be able to exhibit them.

Deadline for entries: Tuesday 30 July at 17:00.
