New Art Birmingham, running from the 15th to 18th of March in Eastside, “will create exposure for the best of contemporary visual arts through a highly visible event showcasing national artists, encouraging entrepreneurial activity amongst new and emerging artists, galleries and dealers and creating opportunities for potential buyers and collectors.” The event comes under the Urban Fusion umbrella and the site for NAB 2005 is here.
The main hub will be an Art Market featuring painters, sculptures, printmakers, photographers and digital artists based in the UK and selected by a panel. Unfortunately the deadline for submissions was last Thursday. I’ll try to be a bit more on the ball next year.
However, running on the fringe of NAB is LTD Edition run by Fused magazine. “No commission will be charged at the art market with all sale profits going direct to the artist. Space available will include exhibition stands and tables to display work. There will be a small fee of Â£10 per table/stand for hire.” The deadline for this one is February 2nd and folk should email firstname.lastname@example.org for an application form.
Tip of the hat to D’log.
