We have recently taken over the Just Add Art and Island Art exhibition spaces at Garbos in Southsea and the Orthodontist Gallery space. We have been preparing to launch our first exhibitions there for some time and we finally have the date of the first exhibition at Garbos exhibition space in Southsea.
This is an opportunity for an artist working in any 2D medium, including illustration and graphic design to have a small solo show at Garbos in Southsea. Running for a period of 2 months this is a chance to showcase your talent to a wider audience and to make art matter in the community.
As one of our new Art Outreach Spaces Garbos is a busy and popular modern hair salon in Southsea with an exhibition space at the front of the space separate from the rest of the gallery.
There is no theme and the only prerequisite is that work submitted is not offensive (graphic nudity, swear words, concerning religion, etc) and ready to be hung.
This space can accommodate between 1 large (2x2m) piece or numerous smaller pieces.
Please note you need to be a Sticks Affiliate Artist to take part in this FREE call out. To join our affiliated artist scheme visit http://affiliateartists.sticksgallery.co.uk/join/ and join first!!

This Thursday see’s the private view of Fareham Art Open Winner, Jenny Tipton’s solo show: Projecting Nature’s Image at Sticks Nomadic Gallery in Fareham Shopping Centre.
Jenny’s work is based around video projections and photographic pieces that examine how we relate to the image and how its meaning is as transient as the snapshot in time it represents. She is most interested in images that are accessed by a large audience, be they a scenic view that is repeatedly shot by people’s cameras, or a piece of stock footage that can be taken by anyone to express a generic moment within a sequence. These images’ status are changed dependant on the way they are seen. The more photos of one scene you see, the more the photos become less about the image and more about a recording of time. The more you see different versions of footage of the same thing, the more the ability to grasp precisely what you are looking at escapes you.
All are welcome to attend the private view, Jenny will be giving a short artists talk about her work and we will also be presenting her with her trophy for winning the Fareham Art Open. This runs from 5:30pm – 7:30pm and there will be food and drink available
