SCULPTURE in the Gaol is now accepting submissions for their 20:20 Online Exhibition.
The online gallery is designed to provide a free-access retail channel for artists and will comprise 20 works by 20 artists. It is scheduled to launch on Saturday, August 1.
"The exhibition is being produced as an alternative to the physical exhibition at Trial Bay Gaol, which sadly cannot take place this year," event organiser Phil Nicholas said.
"We know that many artists, despite being affected by bushfires and the past two months of social distancing, have persisted with their creative practice and we want to provide a platform for the work to be seen.
"We're excited to gather the first 20 works for this exhibition and once these are online and promoted, we'll look into adding future rounds of submissions."
Entries for the first round close on Friday, July 24. There is no fee to enter and sales commission has been waived until the end of the year.
A series of virtual studio workshops by exhibiting artists will help promote the works listed for sale. The workshops will have varied content, from sharing insights into creative practices, to master classes and children's activities.
"Obviously, we've been watching the large number of artists and arts institutions that have been developing online content these past two months," Mr Nicholas said.
"It's been a steep learning curve for all, but the upside is that we've had time to digest the changes and learn how to support artists to present their workshops in the best way."
