Perfect Presents - Call for Work

Mushroom Works are planning a spectacular Christmas selling exhibition and are looking for regional artists, designers and makers to exhibit - commission FREE!

We have a limited number of 4x4ft spaces, which can be rented from the beginning of December until the lead up to Christmas. The stall won’t require manning as the gallery will be invigilated at all times. Spaces will cost a mere £40 (remember it's commission FREE and your work will be on display for over two weeks) and we will be holding several special events to entice shoppers, including a preview evening and two make your own baubles and wrapping paper workshops (with mulled wine and mince pies of course).

The theme of this year’s Christmas exhibition is affordability! We are looking for lower end price ranges (anything from £5 to £50 - although the odd higher priced item may be able to creep in).

If this sounds like the perfect Christmas selling opportunity for you then please send a quick line about you, an outline of your work and two images of what you'd like to exhibit (or similar) and a web link if you have one to Lara Robinson -

Deadline for expressions of interest is Friday 9th October 2009. The exhibition will open on Saturday 5th December and will run until Saturday 19th December (preview Fri 4th December). As spaces are limited there will be a selection process. If you've any questions or queries please speak to Lara on 0191 2244011 or email her at
