Exhibition Opportunities for 2012

19th to 31st March – Artsite Associates Exhibition

1st to 10th March  –  Swindon Film Society -Films & Art Exhibition

As well as screening some excellent moving pictures, this year’s Swindon Film Festival will be showcasing some other types of visual art.

Running in parallel with the Film Festival, from 1st to 10th March, there will be an art exhibition on the theme of ‘Artists – Inspired By Film‘ at The Post Modern in Theatre Square – which is also going to be a venue for several of the films being screened in the festival.

The exhibition is being organised by Artsite, who run The Post Modern . They are now inviting local artists to submit their original work for inclusion in the exhibition. There will be a prize of £100 for the work judged to be the best in the show, with two runner-up prizes of £25.

Artsite are delighted to be part of this year’s Swindon Film Festival. Artists and film makers have always been inspired by each other’s practice and this competition is a great opportunity for us to present a new exhibition based on such inspiration. Swindon’s creative community has lots to offer local people, and linking of the two genres of film and visual arts for the duration of the Film Festival is a really exciting project.

1st to 11th August – Words and Pictures and open exhibition curated by Hannah Moreton

Songs have different meanings for every listener. Each lyric creates a personal attachment to the song and these conjure an array of emotions, from sentimental memories to sadness and isolation. Words and Pictures is an open opportunity for artists to submit their response to the lyrics that they have developed an emotional connection to.

Please email [email protected] to register your interest in being part of the exhibition. Please include indication of your chosen song and medium, as well as your contact details. Submissions now closed, thank you for your interest.

7th to 23rd September – Artsite studio users – Open Studios
