Exhibition dates: February 13th 2012 – April 30th 2012
We would like artists to consider one or all of these themes:
• St Valentine’s Day
We hope this exhibition will communicate the positive aspects of creativity to the people spending time in the hospital
What kind of work
Please submit only two-dimensional works of art. Your work must be on a stretcher or in a wooden frame, so that fittings can be fixed to the back and it can be installed securely. The selected work will be insured while it is at the hospital.
How to submit
Other Side Gallery artists are invited to submit one or two pieces of their work. You can submit new work or work you have already made.
If your work is selected for the exhibition, you will need to bring it to Royal Brompton Hospital (which is near South Kensington underground station) on 7th, 8th or 9th February 2012. Please confirm that you can do this.
There will be a 30% commission on any sales. This will be split equally between The Other Side Gallery and Royal Brompton & Harefield Arts.
• An image of one or two works of art
• The title, medium and size of each work of art
• A few words about why you think the work fits the themes.
One or two sentences is fine. If you want to write more, that’s fine too.
• Your phone number
• Whether you would like your work to be for sale, and if so, how much you would like to sell it for (we will add the 30% commission on top of it)
• Confirmation that if your work is selected, you can bring it to Royal Brompton Hospital on 7th, 8th or 9th February
Please send all of the above to
