Westgate Studio and beyond, Wakefield (UK)

Wednesday 30th November 2011 (November Artwalk)


Everyone is a little fed up right now, not much to feel good about. The economy is in a mess and for many this year; it will be a leaner festive period. In these materialistic times, we believe it is better to give than receive; well, we are giving you an opportunity! And we hope to receive some cracking art in return!

For Winter Wonderland, we want to decorate as many Christmas trees as possible with specially created ‘trimmings’ in whatever size and shape and materials you like; baubles, paper chains, tinsel, hangings or even make a tree! We don’t want to limit you, except to time: the event is 30th November. Painted, drawn or made – we want some sparkle and light and fun!

At the end of the exhibition we’ll be boxing the art up, popping it in the attic and bringing it all out again next year.

Submissions: Please post all items to: Alice & Bob, Studio A6, Westgate Studio, 55 Westgate, Wakefield, WF1 1BW, UK

Deadline (receiving not postmark date): 23rd November 2011

No submission fee, no payments.
