The Argyll Exhibition

Posted by Kirsten Gow on Feb 7, 2018

A juried exhibition of work by Argyll artists and makers to showcase the creative talent of the region and provide opportunities for professional development and sales. Submissions could be on a specific theme, such as an aspect of Argyll's heritage.

In order to gain maximum exposure this should probably be held in a more populous / accessible location within Argyll, though options for widening access could be looked at - an online interpretation of the exhibition; all or part of the exhibition touring; a touring photo exhibit of the exhibition; gaining funding for people in more remote areas to visit; etc.

The exhibition could be further toured to national and international showcases to promot Argyll, both as a creative / culturally rich place and also as holiday destination. If it's not possible to tour the full exhibition, a 'top 5' can be selected (possibly with one being a 'people's choice') .

Option to repeat ever 2 years if successful.

Some revenue can be generated via commission

Great idea Kirsten, I've got a very large venue in Oban, that has been rebranded' The View' It would be perfect for this type of initiative. Please feel free to get in touch.

Great idea. Could this be developed with a collaborative approach to the £500 challenge?
