We've just created this blog to keep you up-to-date with activities with Sheffield Print Fair.
If you weren't aware, we organise print fairs in the hilly city. Our first one was in November 2013, and it seemed to be a real success, with great support from artists, the general public, Sheffield Hallam University, St Mary's, design agency Dust to name but a few...so we are organising more...
Sheffield Print Fair @ The Millennium Galleries - Sat 10th May 2014
Our first event of the year is a collaboration with Museums Sheffield. From January until June 2014 the galleries are hosting a new exhibition of artists/printmakers who live or work in Sheffield, and they asked us if we'd like to curate a print fair there on Saturday 10th May 2014. We said yes (of course!), and applications are now open.
Any artist using printmaking techniques can apply, and the deadline to do so is 28th March 2014. The cost is £45 for a 6ft table, with two chairs
You can download a PDF of the application pack here.
You can download a Word doc of the application pack here.
All applications should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org, and any questions directed to them in the first instance. Please make sure you read the 'Information Sheet' at the end of the form before filling it in, and make sure you attach images of your work with your application.
Museums Sheffield also have a page with info about applying for the May print fair - www.museums-sheffield.org.uk/whats-on/events/2014/5/sheffield-print-fair
(Oh, a future date for your diaries...we are also arranging 'Sheffield Print Fair 2014', our annual event, at St Mary's Church & Community Centre on Saturday 15th November 2014.)
