North Wales PRINT FAIR 2018 – call for artists
We are pleased to announce the second North Wales Print Fair to be held at MOSTYN in Llandudno, North Wales on Saturday 10th and Sunday 11th November 2018, organised in partnership with The Regional Print Centre
Building upon the success of last year’s fair, which welcomed over 1400 visitors on one day, this year’s North Wales Print Fair will take place over the whole weekend and will occupy the three main gallery spaces at MOSTYN. It will be a fantastic opportunity for printmakers from all over the UK to present work for sale in the fabulous spaces of Wales’ foremost contemporary gallery and visual arts centre.
The gallery’s shop and retail spaces, including one dedicated to printmakers, has become known as the ‘go to’ place in North Wales to buy work by contemporary makers at affordable prices. MOSTYN is a registered charity generating over half of our income from trusts, donations and commercial activities. Income generated by the North Wales Print Fair, and proceeds from the Print Fair prize raffle, will be invested back into our exhibition and engagement programme.
Barry Morris, MOSTYN Retail Manager: ‘We were extremely pleased with the response from the visitors and stallholders at last year’s fair. We’re looking forward to welcoming the very best in contemporary printmaking once again this year. Visitors to the fair will be able to buy affordable and original art, direct from the artists”.
Jim Creed, Regional Print Centre Coordinator: ‘We are really looking forward to working in partnership with MOSTYN again this year after the success of last year’s North Wales Print fair. It is a great opportunity for printmakers across Wales and the UK to showcase their work to new audiences, making printmaking more accessible by giving visitors the opportunity to ask questions, see printmaking demonstrations and purchase original artworks.’
Applications are now being taken for a limited number of seller places at the fair. Closing date for applications is Sunday 16th September 2018 at 5pm.
