Annual Summer Exhibition Saturday 4th August – Thursday 30th August 2018
Our annual exhibition is to be held in Gallery 4 at Salisbury Library, SP1 1BL, from 4th – 30th August 2018. Opening times: library hours. Free admission. The gallery is situated on the first floor; there is a lift available.
The range of works on display will provide affordable, original and exceptional artwork by local artists proving that despite recent negative press Salisbury remains a vibrant and active City in which to create. This year the works will be selected from a variety of entries by an external judge, Siriol Sherlock, who will decide upon the winner of the annual award, the Edwin Young Trophy, for the best work in show. Siriol is a highly respected international artist and former artistic director and curator of Rum’s Eg Gallery in Romsey.
Everybody is welcome to attend the ‘Meet the Artists’ event at the Library from 12.00 midday until 3.00 pm on Saturday 4th August.
During the exhibition both adults and children will be encouraged to sculpt small clay ‘selfies’ that will be displayed in the gallery to form an art installation entitled ‘Salisbury Faces in a Crowd’. There will be an opportunity to create these at the ‘Meet the Artists’ event and then every Tuesday and Saturday throughout the period of the exhibition. These events will take place on the steps of the Library where Terry Kemp, the artist behind the project, will be encouraging everybody to participate. The challenge will then be to spot your face amongst the crowd in the Gallery 4 installation!
