As part of my final year at university I am going to be putting on an illustration exhibition. It will be made of up the work of friends and students, giving them the opportunity to have their work displayed in a professional environment. I already have my venue in a small gallery in Bath above St. James Wine Vaults, I also have an expanding collection of art work to display made up a range of things from things like tattoo designs to more illustrative pieces.
I currently have all the very basic things in place but I want to make it a really professional event, with all the elements an established exhibition would have.
The money I recieve would go towards:
Framing and displaying the work for exhibiting.
Creating postcards and prints of the pieces of work.
Decorating the space I have.
Providing refreshments and nibbles on the opening night.
I will be having a private view on the 14th of June where people are able to come and see the work that will be exhibited and meet the artists who& 39;s work is included. I want the make a big deal of the opening night, inlcuding great things to eat and drink, good music and great art to look at. I also plan to inlcude a quirky guest book and cards about the artists and their work.
What I& 39;m doing is giving young artists a chance for their work to get displayed and be seen, I& 39;m not charging them to put work in it and so money is very tight. I want to create a professional environment but on a budget, I& 39;ve done well so far but need the last little bit to make it really work.
