Art in the Window 2016- Call for Artists and Artisan Makers

This summer we aim for over 50 independent retailers on the streets of Glossop, Hadfield, Charlesworth, Gamesley and Simmondley to take part in Art in the Window - Glossopdale; literally providing a shop window for artists and artisan makers in the Glossop area.
This year’s event is run by Glossop Arts Project and the Art in the Window team in collaboration with Glossopdale Trust. The exhibition event will take place from 1st – 31st August  2016.
We are looking for amateur and professional artists as well as local students to display their work.
Art in the Window will be publicised throughout the Peak District and across the Manchester area.
A launch event will be held to celebrate this fantastic exhibition and will give everyone a chance to meet. The date for this will be announced soon.

If you’re interested in exhibiting, submissions can be made by visiting and following the link to the on-line submissions form.
Please have your submission in by 9pm, Sunday 12th June.
Please only submit one piece of work – ensure it is good quality jpegs, the dimensions and medium of your work.

The Art in the Window team will work with retailers and artists to ensure that artworks are appropriately placed and will notify artists and makers of their allocated retailer by the end of Shared learning June. We will endeavour to meet everyone’s preferences. A selection panel will make the final matching decisions.
