We’d like to improve on previous sales with this show taking place over the Summer, we’re aiming to focus on showing affordable art, with no minimum size requirements this time! Artists can set their own prices for sale, with the emphasis on your art being affordable.  Please include the 30% commission for DC in your prices.

We will also be selling members’ greetings cards in the gallery space at a fixed price of £2.50 for the duration of the exhibition (30% commission also applies). We’ll aim to encourage sales by allowing people to take artwork away with them as they buy it rather than leaving it until the end of the show. We hope you will play a part in making this an exciting and vibrant exhibition by submitting your original artworks in any media. On this occasion as we aim to encourage sales, we are not able to exhibit moving image work, but we hope that film-makers will consider submitting limited edition giclée prints of stills or other images from their work.
