What is the Babylon Selected Summer Exhibition? 2018 dates 4 - 26 August
During the summer months our riverside gallery is an unrivalled local setting for artists to display and sell their artwork.
Our aim is to present an impressive display of original contemporary artwork all styles of media with artwork hung floor to ceiling.
Our fourth selected summer exhibition will display works in a variety of mediums and genres by artists of any age, both professional and amateur. Over the month it’s a chance for visitors to browse, buy and discuss the work on show. We are looking for original, contemporary work – all work selected must be for sale. The works will be selected by a team of three independent judges and hung by our experienced gallery team.
Artists and makers may enter a maximum of three pieces which must be original work. The maximum size for 2D work is 1m x 1m, no minimum size, 3D no larger than .5m x.5m. The judges will select a maximum of 110 artworks to display. We will select up to 95 2D and up to 15 3D pieces.
