The Marches Makers are pleased to announce plans for the 2020 Festival.
Next year the May bank holiday has been moved to the weekend of 8-10 May to mark the 75th anniversary of VE day. We have decided to continue with our usual slot of the first May weekend and run a slightly different event.
Following the success of this year’s festivals demonstration programme we are focussing on ‘art in action’ for the 2020 event: Marches Makers Live.
We are creating a programme of participatory workshops, art & craft demonstrations and open studios in venues in the centre of Kington over the weekend. To complement the activities there will be an exhibition of small but perfectly formed artworks in Kington Baptist Chapel.
For 2020’s festival we are onlygoing to be inviting submissions for Miniature Artworks. We hope that you will be game to rise to this size limited challenge and would love for you to contribute works to the exhibition of miniature works. The details for entry are: - Open to artists living/working within a 20 mile radius of Kington - 2-D works: artwork no larger than 150 x 150 mm ready to hang, mounted/framed where appropriate (maximum size for outer edge of mount/frame 250 x 250 mm) - 3-D works no larger than 150 x 150 x 150 mm - Works to be ready for hanging/placing - All works to be available for sale (standardised price tags will be supplied, to be completed by the artist upon delivery) - A hanging/display fee of £5 per work - A maximum of 3 works - Application by email to email@example.com 6th January 2020 to include:
