Visual Artists for 126

ANON | Art Now or Never

We are calling for works to be donated for an exhibition/fundraiser for 126 gallery. It will be a chance to raise funds for this vital, artist-run epicentre for experimental and contemporary art, as well as an opportunity for collectors to acquire affordable work and become acquainted with emerging and established artists. 126 is a not-for-profit organisation. All monies raised will go towards core costs and artists’ fees.

The sale will open at 126, Artist-Run Gallery in Galway, on Friday,October 2nd at 7pm. It will run through that weekend.

The 2D works fall into two categories:
1. Postcard-sized (approx. A6), priced at €20
2. Large (max. A3), priced at €50

A juried prize will be conferred, one for each category. The prize will be announced later, most likely a meal at one of Galway’s fantastic restaurants. On the jury are Galway Arts Centre visual art curator Maeve Mulrennan and Russell Hart, artist/curator and director of economicthoughtprojects.

Works can be in any medium e.g. drawing, photography, painting, print, text, fabric etc.
