What are the specifics of the Exhibition?
We are exhiting a dozen artworks in the long hallway behind the consulting rooms in the Hospital into a community gallery, exhibiting works submitted by staff, students, and volunteers at MVS. The exhibition will be on display from 12 November 2021 to the end of February 2022.
All works will be on display for the duration of the 3 months, with artworks available for sale (with permission from artists).
What are the timeframes?
The closing date for submissions is midnight Monday 25 October 2021. Once finalists have been selected and notified, the exhibition will be installed on Friday 12 November.
What is needed from artists?
Completed pieces of artwork that pertain to the theme, either newly created for this exhibition, or works you've previously created that are relevant to the theme. To be considered for the exhibition, we will simply need a clear photo of the artwork, submitted via this platform once you've created an account.
Can anyone apply?
This program is open to all staff, students, and volunteers at MVS. In the future, we may look at extending this to the broader MVS communities, alumni, and friends and families of the Hospital patients.
Any eligibility criteria to be aware of?
