Two opportunities have arisen for exhibitions coming up later in the year at Orleans House Gallery in Twickenham and the Riverside Gallery in Richmond.  Both galleries are popular and hold regular successful exhibitions throughout the year.  There is an administration charge for both exhibitions; hopefully you’ll think the opportunity and exposure will be worth it!  These two calls for submissions are open to artists nationwide.  Good luck!

In 2010, we have further opportunities for you to submit artwork for an exhibition in Orleans House Gallery; ‘Making It/Faking It’.  The theme of this exhibition is fakes, forgeries, homages and pastiches, or any works that explore the questions and notions of originality, influence and authenticity.  Any media (prints, photos, paintings, objects, sculptures,film) and style are considered.

‘Picturing Science’
4th December – February 2011
Deadline for submissions 23rd October 2010

We have further opportunities for you to submit artwork for an exhibition at Riverside Gallery, Picturing Science. Scientists use an abstract language of signs to visualize and explain the invisible forces, relationships and processes which make up our world.

Any media (prints, photos, paintings, objects, sculptures, film) and style are considered.

  • Artists can submit up to 5 original works. Artworks must be submitted as high resolution jpeg files on a CD, with accompanying A4 sized
  • photographic prints or colour printouts. Original artwork will not be accepted.

Hi David,
We don’t have a stand-alone gallery to display work. However, we have featured your website on one of our Twitter updates; we have over 5,000 followers so I hope this helps!

Making it / Faking it: Copies, homages, pastiches exhibition

Orleans House Gallery, Twickenham

2 October 2010- 23 January 2011

This open exhibition explores how and why contemporary artists approach famous artworks – the perceived ‘masterpieces’ of art history.

Works question notions of ‘originality’ and ‘authenticity.’ The exhibition includes meticulous exact copies in oil to radical reworkings in different or incongruous media.

Artists copy, quote or reference past works for a number of reasons. For some, it is the continuation of the academic tradition of learning through copying, the challenge to equal or perfect a renowned work, while for others it is commercial – creating popular souvenirs for a lucrative consumer market.

Some of the artists included pay reverent, respectful ‘homages’ to artists who have had a profound impact on their work, while others create playful postmodern pastiches imitating and subverting the familiar style of an artist.

Free admission

Gallery open: Tuesdays – Saturdays 1.00-4.30pm, Sundays 2.00-4.30pm

Telephone: 020 8831 6000

Fax: 020 8744 0501

Picturing Science exhibition
4 December 2010 – 26 February 2011
Disease, dissection, and Darwin become the subject for artists displaying at the Riverside Gallery, Richmond from 4th December 2010. Orleans House Gallery presents Picturing Science, an open exhibition which examines the collision between two harmonious and contrasting fields of symbolic representation, Art and Science.
Picturing Science continues the successful programme of open exhibitions from Orleans House Gallery, Twickenham. After receiving 650 works from over 130 artists and an intense selection process, the judging panel whittled the submissions down to just 26 works in various media. The criteria included a direct yet imaginative concept and technical virtuosity.
The exhibition features experiments with ink, mould growth and microscopes that have produced visually stunning images. Julia Hembrow’s Temporal Flow 3, could be interpreted as a landscape or figurative work yet is in fact a representation of the effect of early morning drizzle which fluctuates between scientific observation and visual art. Detailed anatomical and botanical drawings and three dimensional works such as Susan Harrison’s ecorché inspired sculpture are also highlights.
Other exhibiting artists, both local and international include Anais Tondeur, Chris Boland, Nicola Simpson, Johanna Davidson, Amon Alt-Jafarba, Jonathan Wright, Pery Burge, James Collett, Tracey Holland, Pauline Pratt, Annie Ridd, Izzy Wingham, Frédérique Swist, Stan A. Lenartowicz, Sally Hewett, Pascale Pollier, Hilary Arnold-Baker, Amy Louise Nettleton, Charlotte Padgham, Julie Light, Heather Jukes, Margaret R. Marks, Nick Pollen and Andy Dunn.
In addition Artist in Residence Alex Baker will be producing a series of new drawings made using sound and ink. He will also be working with the local community on a workshop exploring the effects of sound vibrations using his technique of drawing as a start point.

Curator Mark De Novellis stated: “Although science is seemingly the logical, rational, ordered antithesis of artistic creativity, artists and scientists still share a common drive to innovate, explore, dissect and reveal. They have a unified love and awe for the world around and within them.

Exhibiting artists draw from a wide variety of scientific disciplines from botany, astronomy to astrophysics to create an accessible, compelling and though-provoking show that is not to be missed!”
The exhibition runs until 26 February 2011 and admission to the Riverside Gallery is free.
