ARThive are currently accepting proposals for our 2011 exhibition program.
We are seeking artists with super ideas and radical artworks, regardless of medium, background, or experience level. We offer an inexpensive gallery solution to untrained artists, hobbyists, doodlers, curators, out-of-towners, first timers, experimenters, performers, film-makers, photographers, comic bookers, musicians, and those trying to get that first foot-in-the-door of the Newcastle art scene. If you haven't exhibited your work before and want to know how to get started, our experienced team of volunteers are here to make your first exhibition a great success. For all you established artists, perhaps you're looking to experiment or trial something new in a no risk, street credible environment? Well heck, we're looking to work with you too. We're tired of seeing the same old thing, show us what you've got!
Exhibitions at ARThive cost $75 per week, and may run for 2-4 weeks. We are open Wed-Sat 12-5pm with additional hours and events negotiable.
Hire fee includes:
Rental of exhibition space
Use of kitchen facilities
Electricity costs for duration
Access to gallery storage and hanging supplies
Promotional material including budget posters, invitations, media release and advertising on website, mailing list, Facebook, Twitter, Renew Newcastle, Culture Hunter etc.
