A Breath of Fresh AIR

 

The appointment of Artists In Residence (AIR) for the 18th, 19th and 20th National Open Art Exhibitions at Somerset House, the Royal College of Art and Mercers' Hall respectively, brings a unique, third dimension to the NOA Exhibitions and provides artists with another opportunity to progress their creative journeys and gain more experience and exposure.

 

Following this success, we will be opening our doors once again and will be inviting four talented artists to the 21st National Open Art Exhibition at Bargehouse, Oxo Tower Wharf in the heart of London. Here, our artists will be in residence from 17 - 26 November, sharing their most intimate creative processes with us.

 

 

 

 

Applications for NOA17 are now closed.

 

Please be sure to read and consider the Terms and Conditions at the bottom of this page before making your application.

 

Many thanks,

 

The NOA Team

SALLY BUCHANAN

21st National Open Art Exhibition | Artist in Residence

Bargehouse, Oxo Tower Wharf | 17 - 26 November 2017

 

Artist Statement

 

Sally is a London based Multimedia Artist working with craft and a dash of wit to make Sculpture, Embroidery, Land Art and Embroidery. Over the last 4 years, she's been developing various techniques using textiles to make site-specific installations and low relief sculptures. This work explores contemporary theories of astrophysics, cosmology and environmental science and aims to question what we take for granted and to extend the limits of our perception. Other projects have been entirely intuitive and are a personal response to the atmosphere of individual spaces.

 

The Bargehouse has some absolutely irresistible and enticing spaces for showcasing art and in particular, it’s an excellent venue for creating atmospheric and intriguing site-specific installations! It’s the chance of a lifetime to be an Artist in Residence for NOA17; it will be an absolute privilege to be working in this super space and creating work in the public domain and to meet and work alongside both the general public and the other Artists in NOA17.

21st National Open Art Exhibition | Artist in Residence

Bargehouse, Oxo Tower Wharf | 17 - 26 November 2017

 

Artist Statement

 

I am inspired by light and life, my work can be broadly split into two - the figure and the landscape, although helicoidal pattern within composition connects all of the work I do -the spiraling form of the universe, DNA, shells, surf, clouds, can be found in most of my work.

 

Representation of the human form is an ongoing preoccupation - gender, the association of gender roles, femininity, sirens, has generated a large body of work in different media -drawing, ink, watercolour, and print.

Personal Statement

 

Pete has spent the past 25 years working as a professional artist full time since graduation. "It has been a very interesting rare and privileged journey/roller coaster and one of the things that I have learned, and lean heavily on now, is that a picture is worth a thousand words. I remain undiscovered, emerging and patiently waiting to make that fortune when I am dead."

AIR Terms and Conditions

Terms, Conditions and Important Information about the National Open Art Artists In Residence (AIR) Programme.

 

This year, we will be inviting the 650 shortlisted artists to apply for the residency as well as those who have registered their interest directly.

 

You will be invited to submit an application in September.

 

Availability | You are required to be available from the 17 – 26 November to participate in the NOA17 Artists In Residence Programme. We will require at least two of the four participating artists to be in the studio at one time during the 10 day exhibition. We are of course flexible when it comes to arriving late / leave early due to transport for example. (Don't worry, we are very friendly!) Please check the website for the exact dates and times of the exhibition. If you are one of the successful applicants Cloe Barrett will liaise with you and the other artists to organise a schedule for your residencies with your fellow AIR.

 

Your Studio Space | You will be working in a dedicated studio space in Room 9 at Bargehouse, Oxo Tower Wharf from 17 – 26 November. There is plenty of space and the room is moderately heated, but bring layers and dress warm! There are lots of electric points and a WC in the building with good coffee shops and eats on the doorstep. More information about Room 9 and your studio space to come.

You can expect visitors to observe you working and they many will have questions; we are keen for you to enthusiastically engage with visitors and invite them to talk to you about your work and your creative process. We understand this doesn’t suit everyone! So, it is worth thinking about whether this role is something you’d like to fulfill and add to your experiences. Please use your residency as a continuation of the body of work you submit for the application. Please do feel free to bring business cards and flyers to hand out and sketchbooks etc. for visitors to look through and go mad on social media!

Please follow the link for directions and more information about this year’s venue.

 

Marketing | We will be supporting the marketing of the Artists In Residence as part of the promotion of the 21st National Open Art Exhibition and will provide marketing material for you to use in your own newsletters and across your own social media outlets.

 

Sales | The Chichester Art Trust will take a 10% commission on any sales during the exhibition and any commissions taken during the exhibition. We cannot however, guarantee any sales nor can we promote them over the works on sale at the exhibition.

 

Expenses | We are a Not for Profit Charity, and apologise that we are currently unable to contribute to any expenses. We are aware that expenses can spiral with potential accommodation and transport costs. It may be rather expensive for some, and we completely understand if you are unable to commit due to financial reasons. Please be sure to fully cost the residency before you apply to avoid disappointment. However, we are always looking for sponsorship and if our circumstances change, we may consider a contribution to reimbursing NOA AIR expenses. But at this stage there is no guarantee.

 

Benefits | What we can do for you, is to provide you with this great platform with lots of exposure, potential press opportunities, extensive networking, new audiences and buyers, and a wonderful, unforgettable experience. In addition, you will be eligible for inclusion in other Pop Up Exhibitions we have throughout the year, although inclusion is unfortunately not guaranteed.

 

Supporting an Arts Charity | It will be looked on favourably if the artist applicant has supported the charity by either entering (past or present) or by donating to the charity. Please see the Terms and Conditions of entry here. It is important to note that you must be Living or working in the UK or Ireland to enter the National Open Art Competition.

It will also be looked at favourably if the artist applicant is signed up to the NOA News and actively supports our social media outlets.

 

Social Media | Please find us on Facebook Twitter Instagram and Pinterest and ‘like’ our page (if you have social media sites).

 

You will be required to accept our terms and conditions if you are selected as an Artist In Residence. National Open Art has the right to withdraw from any agreement at any given time.
