Age & Memory
17 January - 25 April 2009. Deadline for submissions, end of November 2008.

Through its annual open exhibition opportunities, Orleans House Gallery in Twickenham helps artists both locally and nationally to showcase their work in group exhibitions. Each year, over 500 individual artists (excluding those participating in Arthouse) exhibit work in a range of open exhibitions across three galleries - Orleans and Stables Galleries, Twickenham and the Riverside Gallery in Richmond.

In 2009, we have further opportunities for you to submit artwork for a thematic exhibition at the Riverside Gallery exploring the concepts of ageing and memory and the relationship between each. Any media is considered including: painting, drawing, photography, digital art, textiles, sculpture and installations pieces. Any style of art is also considered.

Artists can submit up to 5 original works either via A4 sized photographic prints, colour printouts or high-resolution jpegs submitted on CD. Original artwork is not accepted.

Please clearly label each submission with: artist‚s name, title of work, publication, date, media, approximate size and price before commission if the work is for sale (the gallery will add on an additional 40% commission to the artist's price).

In addition, please enclose contact details, an artists statement and CV. There is a Ł10.00 administration charge (which also contributes towards exhibition costs); Ł7.50 concessions (please include proof). Please make cheques payable to ŚL.B.R.U.T‚. Your submission will not be accepted without payment. If you would like images returned, please enclose a stamped self-addressed envelope.

Successful artists will be contacted by email or in writing approximately two weeks after the deadline. Any queries, please email curator Mark De Novellis at or call 020 8831 6000.
