Exhibition selection process and criteria

The Stone Space welcomes exhibition proposals from individual artists or those wishing to exhibit as a group.

The programme is planned 6-12 months in advance and periodically we will publish an invitation to submit for a particular time period, with details of when successful applicants will be notified.

Submissions are reviewed by a panel drawn from the volunteer organising group who assess each proposal, giving consideration to a variety of factors including but not limited to the following:

·         level of artistic enquiry

·         level of technical skill and ability

·         suitability to the available exhibition space

·         evidence of the applicants experience and ability to deliver the project as proposed

·         fit alongside other programmed exhibitions

Not all proposals will be accepted but unsuccessful applicants are welcome to resubmit.

Guest curators

The Stone Space welcomes exhibition proposals from curators.

Additionally, the Stone Space has previously created opportunities for artists to take part in group exhibitions via open calls to submit works on a particular theme for selection. These have always proved extremely popular and have produced engaging and diverse exhibitions,  having attracted submissions from local, national and international artists. We would like to continue to include shows of a similar format in the exhibition programme and would be keen to receive proposals from curators to run similar projects.
