Open Call for Primer Exhibition


Apply today for the chance to showcase your work along side some of the most talented painters from around the world.


Both traditional and digital works are welcome. The exhibition will open on the 25th May - as well as online viewing and sales through our website.

Ink welcomes all artists, professional, amateur and students to submit work. We look forward to seeing your artwork and meeting you during the exhibition.

Artists need to ship the work to us, we can recommend fast and reliable couriers if you ask for it to avoid any delays. Artists are to organise the return of the works, we will do the packaging and attach the labels onto the package stress free. 

*Due to complications with transport and importing overseas, physical artwork applications for the exhibition are currently only open to UK based artists, however any international artist will have the chance to display there work digitally using our many displays. Ink gallery is not liable for any loss or damages during transit, this is the couriers responsibility and negligence. 

If artworks are prints or on paper, they must be framed and mirror plated when shipped. If works are being sent with no frames, it is the artists responsibility to provide framing and mirror pates to Ink gallery. Ink is not responsible for providing frames for the artist. However we are happy to sort out the framing for you if frames and mirror plates are shipped to us with the artists works.
