Reading Arts Week Asks for Residents to Make Art Submissions


The town’s arts festival and largest public art exhibition celebrating the wealth of creativity returns in June (15-23) and is calling on residents to make their art submissions.

Reading Arts Week organised by Reading Borough Council, in partnership with Reading College and in collaboration with University of Reading, Strength in Numbers Arts Festival, Whiteknight Studio Trail, Reading Your Way and Rising Sun Art Centre, is inviting artists and artisans in Reading and surrounding area to submit up to two original works of art. The pieces will be exhibited at this year’s Arts Week Exhibition, held at Reading College on 22 and 23 June.

Submitting work into Reading Arts Week is open to anyone over the age of 16 living or working in the greater Reading area. You needn’t be a professional established artist, maybe you enjoy painting or taking photographs or are currently on a part-time creative course and would like to enter your work into the exhibition.

You can submit paintings, sculpture, photography, textiles, ceramics, furniture, glass, mosaics, jewellery and digital art including video.

You can submit a maximum of two works, for a supporting fee of £18.00. There is no charge for those who are currently studying on a full or part time course in the Reading area. Deadline for submissions is 23:59 on Sunday 2 June 2013.
