2014 Exhibition Submission
Surface Gallery welcomes exhibition proposals for 2014. We accept applications from groups and curators as well as individuals. These will be considered and selected based on the content of the proposed show not the profile of the artist(s) involved.
Surface Gallery offers a very varied and diverse exhibition programme, selected largely through proposals submitted to the gallery. We also curate a number of annual open shows throughout the year, details of which will be available on this page during the exhibition’s call for submissions period. This offers individuals the opportunity to exhibit in an exhibition curated by Surface Gallery
The exhibition programme aims to support emerging artists by offering them a high quality space for hire in which to exhibit work and encourage artists to be ambitious and adventurous in their practice
