As this is the first year we have asked artists to submit their idea or concept at a much earlier date, we have extended the submission opportunity until 12.00 midnight Wednesday 15 November 2017.
We are well aware that you may be considering a work that is just ‘a gleam in your eye’ at this point. So, if you wish to exhibit next March we are happy to receive even an initial thumbnail sketch of this work. Our aim is to encourage you to bring your imagination to life.
If this is the case, it will be sufficient for you to send a thumbnail sketch for assessment and then submit more detailed images with your Application and Agreement, at a later stage.
The earlier you submit the better as places are limited and it assists the planning and organisation of the increasingly popular Sculpture Bermagui exhibition.
