2017 Art Show FULL

We are now FULL for the 2017 Art Show and unfortunately having to return any new applications as we don’t have the space to exhibit all the work we have received applications for.  Apologies to those that have been returned, this is simply a space issue.
We will be sending out confirmations to all applicants next week confirming the details of the work that has been entered into our database and the details that will be included in the catalogue so that they can be checked and any errors can be corrected before the catalogue goes to print.

Titchfield Art & Craft Show 2016 – Now open for applications to exhibit.

Please see the Artists & Photographers page for full information about exhibiting your work.

The deadline for applications is Friday 11th March 2016 although if there is high demand we may have to close earlier.

A big thank you to River Studio, Warsash.

Today I have been to pick up some of the signs that have been printed for us by one of our sponsors, River Studio in Warsash.

They look amazing and will hopefully make navigating around our show a little bit easier this year as they will point out where the Country Market, Photography/Digital Art section, Craft and Sales desks are as well as there being new signs to go outside by the entrance to the show.

We are most grateful to Dave at River Studio for providing the posters as well as sponsoring our Photography/Digital Art section for the second year in a row.

You can find out more about River Studio and the printing services that they provide in the Sponsors Section of our website.

Happy Thursday everyone,

Mark

NEWS UPDATE

TACS2014-WebsiteLogo

 

In our committee meeting last night it was agreed that we would be allowing the submission of Digital Art to our show this year.

This means that if you do Digital Art on a computer you are now able to submit your work for sale in the show.  We still only allow Original Art work, so if you use Watercolour, Pen & Ink, Mixed Media, Pastels, Gouache your work has to be the original, it cannot be a print.

In order to do this we will be expanding the “Photography” section to “Photography & Digital Art”.  Our definition of Digital Art is  work that has been generated on a computer.

To enable us to update the Application Forms there will be a short delay in them being made available, but they will be on the website as soon as possible.
