Elmbridge: Moving Art is an exhibition platform offering emerging and established artists the opportunity to showcase their work at the Robert Philips Gallery at Riverhouse Arts Centre in Walton-on-Thames from 19 July to 13 August before touring other spaces across Elmbridge.
This project, run by Riverhouse Arts Centre in partnership with The R C Sherriff Trust and Elmbridge Borough Council, is inviting artists aged 15+ to submit one piece of art for the exhibition by 1 May at the very latest. The aim of this project is to celebrate the wealth of talent across the borough and give artists a platform. Successful submissions will need to be delivered to the gallery on Monday 17 July and information about the artist will be published into an Elmbridge Artists Directory. Artists can also sell their artwork at the exhibition if they wish.
Emily Boulting, Director of Riverhouse Arts Centre, said, “The objective of the Elmbridge Moving Art Project is to help and encourage artists by providing access to local exhibition spaces where they can showcase their own work to a wide audience. We look forward to receiving as many submissions as possible”.
Councillor Janet Turner, Portfolio Holder for Leisure and Culture, said, “Elmbridge: Moving Art is a great platform for all the artists who are keen to share their talent with the community. I strongly encourage them to take part and submit their favourite work so that everyone can enjoy them”.
