Whether creating has been your escape or your creation can provide escape for the viewer, take this opportunity to show work in public space in the offices of Bridgepoint Hospital.
Ideal size - Each wall space is approximately 60" wide and 108" high. Ideal width - 30" - 48", height - 30" - 72". Bright colours also look amazing in the space. As this is a historically protected site, we cannot accept heavy works (i.e. large pieces behind glass) as it may compromise the hanging system at Bridgepoint.
Sales - All sales will be processed by the Artists' Network and a 20% commission will apply.
Hanging Date: Tuesday Oct 18th at 10am
Ready to Hang: We will be using an art hanging system so please be sure your pieces are ready to hang. Ideally, 2 D-rings, located about 6” from the top of the piece will ensure the best hang with no movement. Please be sure your name and contact information is located somewhere on the back of the piece.
"Escape is such a thankful Word
I often in the Night
Consider it unto myself
No spectacle in sight
Escape - it is the Basket
In which the Heart is caught
When down some awful Battlement
The rest of Life is dropt -
Tis not to sight the savior -
It is to be the saved -
And that is why I lay my Head
Upon this trusty word – "
By Emily Dickinson Written in 1875.
