Call for Artists

Theme : Big Skies

– Deadline November 22nd, 2010 -

Appledore Arts is inviting artists to submit proposals for the 14th Appledore Visual Arts Festival. The 2011 theme is ‘Big Skies’. North Devon is the home of big skies, there are few places in the UK which offer such a variety of dramatic and colourful skies. The light is special, the sunsets are glorious and the winter storm clouds that roll in off the Atlantic have a beauty all of their own. Our star laden night skies are just as spectacular, gazing at a nightscape free of light pollution is a rare treat in our modern world. The 2011 Festival will celebrate North Devon ’s special light and big skies with a wide ranging, innovative and contemporary artistic programme.

Over the last 13 years, Appledore Arts has developed a reputation for programming high quality and original work, we work with artists from all over the UK, from emerging artists to artists of international renown. The four day Festival, supported by Arts Council funding, is recognised as a major arts event with an established regional presence and a rapidly growing national profile.
