Déjà vu open submission

A multi-media exhibition celebrating BAR’s diverse artistic community.

The Library at Willesden Green

Saturday 7th November 2015 - Wednesday 16th December 2015

Calling all BAR Members past, present and future! We invite you to submit work for our upcoming exhibition at the gallery in the new Willesden Green Library Centre.

The exhibition will be an opportunity to showcase a selection of work that celebrates BAR’s diverse and inspiring artistic community and its 30 year history in Brent.

The exhibition is open to a variety of mediums including all 2D work (painting, photography, print, mixed media, drawing), small sculptural work and contemporary craft.

This is a competitive selection with only a limited number of places available. As a result not all applications will be successful and a maximum of 1 piece can be chosen per artist. We urge all applicants to submit their very best work with special attention being paid to mounting and framing. More details can be found below. 

Good luck and we look forward to receiving your application!
