    Fringe Arts Bath - Call for Submissions

    Details of the FaB callout for this year's Fringe Festival can be found on the fringeartsbath website:


    FAB is Bath’s only annual visual arts festival and we are looking for 
    artists to submit work to the shows in this call out.
    'We actively promote and celebrate contemporary art in the Bath area and 
    beyond, showcasing early career artists and curators, and those who find it 
    difficult to break into (or prefer to operate outside of) the gallery based art scene.'
    FAB frequently uses “alternative”, temporary exhibition spaces - anything from 
    street corners, shops and shopping centres to front rooms and cafés. 
    This year we are very proud to say we will be running our new bi-annual
    art prize: ‘The FAB Open’ a new open competition and exhibition inviting 
    work from artists practising contemporary art in the fields of painting, print, 
    drawing, photography, film, sound, sculpture, installation, and performance.
    We are a not for profit organisation and receive little funding, relying on 
    enthusiastic volunteers to enable us to put on each year’s programme of shows 
    and events.
    How to apply
    Read the requirements in each call out. It is free to submit proposals, if 
    you are selected then there will be a £10 administration charge per artist (this 
    charge does not apply to events 1, 3, 10, 11, 12); this will go towards publicity 
    and other costs incurred during the festival. FAB is a voluntary, not for profit 
    organisation, and a company limited by guarantee.
    Email images as jpeg, text as Word or PDF files. Submissions by post must 
    include a SAE if you would like your work returned.
