Open Call for our brand new Award - for a dedicated exhibition at the Art Bypass Gallery!

Call For Artists

Sweet 'Art's Award - Deadline Extended

Sweet ‘Art are celebrating their 10th Birthday with a 3 month long program of art exhibitions and events taking place in their pop up space the Art Bypass Gallery!

Sweet ‘Art is a non-profit arts organization based in London, dedicated to the promotion of upcoming and established artists through exciting art events with a difference. We operate with an intersectional feminist ethos and will utilise our space from May - July 2022 to celebrate our 10 year anniversary, engaging the public with diverse artistic practice, and promoting awareness and understanding of important social issues through the arts with a special emphasis on working with artists who are marginalised from the artworld. Sweet ‘Art always aims to provide an accessible and inclusive space for making, looking at, thinking about and debating art.

 

 

Sweet ‘Arts’ third show as part of their exhibition programme will be a curated exhibition for the winner and two runners up of our newly conceived art award. In honour of our overarching mission and values we will be holding an open entry competition for any artist exploring any medium, theme or concept in their art practice. The panel will be particularly interested in artists that display both artistic merit and interest in challenging themselves to progress in their career and explore the fulness of their chosen media. We would love to see artists that are able to site their artwork within wider contexts (whether that is socially, politically or within art historical discourse). The first prize this year, with the winner selected by our panel, will be a 5 day solo exhibition in the majority space of the Art Bypass Gallery.  The exhibition will be fully curated, promoted and invigilated by Sweet ‘Art along with our hosting of an opening arty party to remember! The winner of the award will also be offered a portfolio review by the Sweet ‘Art team, and blog post documenting their practice. Two runners up will also be chosen and given the opportunity to exhibit a small selection of art work in the gallery
