Call To Artists
For our 10th Anniversary the Upstairs Gallery is promoting the medium of art as a means to engage the local community and cultures around the concept of mental health, and to convey messages to counter misunderstandings, fear and prejudice. We believe that art is a tool for empathy that can help people understand mental illness in a way that is enlightening and therapeutic for both the viewer and the artist. The colour palate, the textures and the subject matter can all influence the immediate emotional response of the viewer, which is why empathy has been chosen as the theme of this year's exhibition.
We invite you to submit a work of art which cultivates empathy and helps us become more aware of our own emotions and more receptive to the emotions of others.
Contact Sammy by email firstname.lastname@example.org for your registration form. Exhibition opens Friday 3 August 6pm 2018, on display daily 10am to 4pm until Sunday 26 August 2018.
REGISTRATION CLOSES MONDAY 16 JULY 2018 - NO LATE ENTRIES WILL BE ACCEPTED
