OPEN ART EXHIBITION
The New Forest Agricultural Show Society are pleased to invite artists, both amateur and professional to exhibit and sell some of their work in our very popular marquee at the New Forest & Hampshire County Show 2023.
A maximum of three 2D works [two to be shown and one for back up] and three 3D works [or six 3D items with no 2D works] can be entered per artist with the backup piece exhibited should space allow. The entry fee this year is £25 for 3 x 2D/ 3 x 3D entries and a 25% commission will be taken on any works sold. The £25 fee also entitles entry of up to 20 cards @ £2.50 each (of which 50p is retained by the New Forest Show) as well as up to 5 mounted and wrapped high quality unframed original prints/paintings for which 25% commission will be applied.
Entries will close on Monday 17th July or once the maximum of 400 works has been achieved. Any entries received after this date will not be accepted. The Society can only accept pictures or paintings no larger than 36” x 30” and with a value between £50 and £750 and in the case of 3D less than 36” in height.
The Society will not display pictures or paintings that do not have the correct fixings for hanging (D Rings and Cord). See Terms and Conditions No 6.
The New Forest Agricultural Show Society does not provide insurance for any works exhibited at the Show, however excellent security services will be in place during the Show.
As in previous years, we would be very grateful to receive assistance with the following roles within the Art Pavilion for the duration of the Show:
• Watchers / Minglers
• Fire Exit minders / Picture movers
• Sales desk assistants
• We are eager for demonstrators for painting, pottery or any other art related craft for within the marquee.
• Volunteers will be notified as soon as possible.
