All 2D work submissions are required to be 12”x12” square format (the size of a standard vinyl record sleeve). Painting, photo, printing... all mediums are accepted.

If the work is framed, the size of the frame is to be included in the 12”x 12” size requirement - and all work accepted must be ready to hang on submission.

All 3D work submissions are to work around the volume of 12”x12”x12”.

Gallery hanging fees:

•   1 x work accepted = £10

This is payable on artwork hand-in at the gallery. Original artworks will sell for £78 with the possibility of selling additional prints of work at £33 (at no extra fee). Participating artists are encouraged to help out with invigilating the exhibition.

As for the theme: just let ‘record store and/or season’s greetings’ take you where it may...
