NEW Shropshire Hills Art Week - Artists Wanted

NEW Shropshire Hills Art Week - Artists Wanted in South Shropshire
Artists joining together to promote the creative arts and the beauty of the local landscape

Artists are needed now for the first Shropshire Hills Art Week from 31 May – 8 June 2014.

Do you paint wonderful landscapes, create beautiful jewellery, build stunning pots, carve magnificent stone sculptures, weave interesting wall hangings, blow fabulous glass, or make comfortable furniture? Are you an artist in or around the Shropshire Hills?

If so, Shropshire Hills Art Week wants you!

The Shropshire Hills Art Week (SHAW) is a new art organisation created to encourage artists and makers to open their studios for an art week in early June 2014. We are seeking artists to sign up, join in and get involved! Works inspired by landscape and wildlife are encouraged, to showcase this stunning area.

The new Director, Jules McRobbie, wants to build a real community among Shropshire Hills artists. A website will contain artist profiles, an online gallery, helpful business tips for artists, regular newsletters, and guidelines on getting the most out of art week. This will allow artists to share their creative vision, maximise each artist’s exposure, and increase visitors to the Shropshire Hills using art as a magnet to draw people here to walk, cycle, eat, swim in rivers, and share our lovely landscape.

For costs and more information please ontact Jules McRobbie on 01568 770168 or 0773 638 1287

The deadline for registering for this year’s Shropshire Hills Art Week is 1 March 2014. Sign up, join in and get involved now!
