Bow Skills: How to apply to Open Calls
Wednesday 9 August, Gallery doors open at 6pm. Talk starts at 7pm

In this talk, based on her experience working behind the Ashurst Emerging Artist Prize and with individual artists, Caitlin Smyth will discuss how to find the right open calls for your work, how to approach this realistically and engage them as effectively as possible. Covering researching opportunities through to what you should actually submit to a call, this talk aims to help artists look objectively at what they are already doing and develop this to be as effective as possible.  This event is part of Bow Arts’ on-going Bow Skills programme, that offers sessions, talks and discussions around artist development.

Curator of the 2017 Bow Open Show Alex Chinneck invites us into his world with Gallery Co-Director Sophie Hill. Uniting the disciplines of art, architecture, theatre and engineering, the work of British sculptor Alex Chinneck is monumental in ambition and impact, producing contextually responsive interventions that amplify and animate the place in which they stand.

This talk will be held in the Nunnery Gallery giving you the chance to explore the 2017 Bow Open Show in which Chinneck had selected the work of 19 Bow Arts artists. His is a playful selection focusing on shape and includes painting, photography and works on paper, with work that encompasses the very current themes of politics, consumption and the longing for simpler things.
