South Square Gallery invites applications to be considered for inclusion in our upcoming Friends of South Square exhibition. The exhibition will take place in August 2018 and will showcase the diverse work of the creative community which has been so important to success of South Square. The show provides opportunities for local and regional artists to be part of South Square Centre’s community and to support the centre’s future.

The exhibition opening will aim to celebrate the Friends of South Square scheme and it’s contribution to South Square Gallery. We also welcome friends who are not artists, to make suggestions of contributions to the open evening. Such as; workshop leaders, live musicians, activities etc.

We invite applications from a wide variety of art forms including sculpture, visual arts, printmaking, video and audio works and participatory art forms.
