Skipton Arts Series

The Jersey Arts Trust is delighted to announce the launch of Skipton Art Series (SAS) 2015 and we would like to invite you to join us. Skipton Art Series is the umbrella term that will encompass the Skipton Open Studios, as well as other visual art events throughout the next two years. After overwhelmingly positive feedback from both public and artists, Skipton Open Studios has moved to a biennial event and will take place in 2016. We hope the new format will enable artists greater freedom to create a new body of work, develop links and collaborations with other artists as well as having the opportunity to take part in an enormous (literally) public exhibition at the end of the year.

We shall be holding development community events throughout 2015, to stimulate and encourage artist collaboration, creativity and support. At the end of the year, we will be staging a high profile exhibition projected onto the walls of Normans, Commercial Buildings, to showcase all the artists involved and the new work. The show will be independently curated and will run over 4 days, with different exhibitions running each night. There will also be the opportunity for artists to propose solo and artist-curated exhibitions.

To apply, simply download the application form below. We will be holding a meeting at 6pm on Monday 19th January to discuss the project and meet with all the artists involved. If you would like to talk about any aspect of Skipton Arts Series, please email Sasha Gibb: Tel: 01534 617521
