Call for Artists: Bow Open Show 2015

Sunday, May 31, 2015 - 21:00

This opportunity is open to Bow Arts artists only.

Dear Artists,

Every year we invite you to submit work to be part of the Bow Open Show, selected by a guest curator. This year I am thrilled to announce Dr Shahidha Bari will be joining me to make the selection. Furthermore, the show returns to the Nunnery Gallery after a 5 year sojourn at the Bermondsey Project Space, a welcome return and the Private View will coincide with our immensely popular Bow Road Open Studios – twentieth anniversary!  It promises to be a high profile and well-attended exhibition and we would like you to be part of it.

This year all you have to do is email us a JPEG/PDF or link to a video piece with any passwords of the work you would like to include with details of size, medium and title. Please keep the attachment size under 5MB but remember a good quality image is really important for us to view your work in the best possible light. Please only submit one piece of work for consideration (although we will consider works with multiple elements i.e diptychs, triptychs etc).  Please also include a recent CV and a link to your website, if you have one.

Bow Open Show 2015 is to be held at the Nunnery Gallery (19th June – 5th July 2015)

The deadline for submissions is Sunday 31st May 2015 at 9pm. Please submit your work to

You will be informed of the decision on Friday 5th June 2015.

Please email confirming that, should your work be selected:

  1. The work is available from 17th June when you will have to be available to drop off work at Nunnery Gallery until Tuesday 7th July when you will have to collect your work again.
  2. You give permission for your work to be included in associated publicity and catalogue
  3. Should your work be for sale as part of the exhibition it will be subject to our gallery terms which will be supplied after selection.
