Call for Proposals | NZSoS 2018 Indoor Gallery

Proposals due Friday August 31, no later than 5pm

NZ Sculpture OnShore are now inviting submissions for the Indoor Gallery at NZ Sculpture OnShore 2018 is now open. In 2016, the gallery raised tens of thousands of dollars for Women’s refuges and artists around the country.  If you’re an artist working in small sculpture or quality objet d’art, and would like your work to be seen by an arts-focused audience of 20,000 while supporting a good cause, then they would like to hear from you.

All artists interested in proposing an artwork(s) for the Indoor Gallery space in the Officers’ Mess at Fort Takapuna in Auckland are invited to submit a proposal(s) for consideration. It is not a themed exhibition. All concepts will be considered.

Proposals will be received until 5pm on Friday August 31 2018. – however they urge you to register early to secure your space. There is no entry fee.

NZ Sculpture OnShore looks forward to hearing from you.

– Ross Liew and Anna Hanson, Curators, NZ Sculpture OnShore 2018.

NZ Sculpture OnShore is a national biennial event presented at the spectacular Fort Takapuna Historic Reserve on Auckland’s North Shore. The Indoor Gallery is an opportunity for artists to place sculptures and works related to their sculptural practice within an indoor environment focused on sales. For several years the indoor gallery has included both artists who have been selected for the outdoor exhibition and any other artist who submits work of a suitable quality.

The focus in the Indoor Gallery is to provide a very diverse offering of high quality art works of all sizes for interested art collectors and members of the public. NZ Sculpture OnShore aim to include many smaller art works that are priced more modestly; and several artists have provided us with multiples and editions.

NZ Sculpture OnShore welcome submissions of more than one work.

All of the works will be for sale. NZ Sculpture Onshore Ltd will take a commission of 33⅓%, the proceeds of which will directly benefit NZ Women’s Refuges. They are proud to say that, since its inception, more than $1.7 million dollars has been donated for women and families in need across New Zealand.
