Kober

copper ‘koh-bur’

 
Heseltine Gallery, Truro is inviting expressions of interest from Printmakers to respond to the theme of Kober. This will be the first open art exhibition at Heseltine Gallery, with submissions being selected by professional printmaker John Howard and members of the Heseltine Guild.
 
Artists may interpret the theme in terms of copper's properties, manufacture, history or simply offer an innovative printmaking response that focuses and compliments the artists’ practice.
 
Heseltine Gallery is set within the heart of Truro School and offers a large and commanding space with a vaulted ceiling and beautiful stained glass windows to allow work to be viewed at a distance and intimately.
 
We wish to encourage emerging and established artists to apply from across Cornwall and beyond.  Pieces selected for this show will be hung alongside some of the prints from the Truro School Art Collection;  A prestigious selection of drawings, paintings, prints and photographs created by Cornish Artists assembled over 40 years, including works by Sir Terry Frost, Bernard Leach, Tom Cross, Robert Jones, Louise McClary and Wilhelmina Barns-Graham.

  • Fill as much as possible of the image with the work
  • Avoid any distortion in the image, e.g. take the photo directly in front of the work
  • Do not include watermarks or copyright on the work

Please provide a title, print process and size of all submissions, links to your website and maximum of 250 word statement on your artistic practice.  This should include concepts of how your submitted work connects to the theme Kober.
