ART ON THE RAILINGS WATERFORD 2017

 

The Viking Triangle, Waterford July 15th, August 5th, August 26th and September 9th.

CALLING ALL DESIGNERS; PHOTOGRAPHERS; FELT DESIGNERS; FINE ART PRINTERS; CROCHET/KNITTING DESIGNERS; CLAY/CERAMIC ARTISTS…

Confirmed dates for Art On The Railings Waterford 2017 are:

Saturday 15th of July 11:00am – 4:00pm Sproai

Saturday 5th of August 11:00am – 4:00pm Daytripper

Saturday 26th August 11:00am – 4:00pm Harvest Festival

Saturday 9th of September 11:00 – 4:00pm

The aim of the exhibition is to give artists the opportunity to connect and build the art community within the city. We are using the festival dates to utilize the amount of visitors to the area, therefore maximizing the visibility of the artworks and sales opportunities. The exhibitions will take place on the above dates over the summer months, with the artwork hung from the railings in specified spaces within and surrounding the Viking Triangle from 11am to 4pm.

How It Works

  • Simply get in touch via email or Facebook. The coordinator will send you out a submission form to be signed and returned. Once returned, a space will then be reserved. This form is to ensure that AOTR’s has all necessary details for each artist on file.
  • Artist spaces are approximately 4 feet across and artwork is to hang from railings only.
  • The event is held from 11am to 4pm each Saturday and we ask all artists to be in place 30 minutes minimum before event.
  • AOTR’s 2017 Exhibition is weather dependent. All participants will be expected to make contact with the coordinator the morning of the event should weather conditions be a barrier to continuing on that day.
  • The organisers retain a discretionary policy for participation, please do not hang anything that would offend our visitors, children or your mother!
  • A booking fee of €10 per event, per artist and non-refundable. this boking fee must be paid on the morning of/or before set up to the AOTR coordinator.
  • AOTR does not hold artwork insurance. There are no facilitators on site so supervision of the space/work is solely the responsibility of the artist.

Artists will be grouped accordingly, including collectives, groups and/or mediums as appropriate.
