Street Art Open 2014
A Celebration of Alternative Art
April 26th to May 17th 2014
This Spring, Surface Gallery will once again throw open the doors for the Street Art Open. By now a perennial favourite at Surface, this exhibition will feature work from across a range of creative practices and media, celebrating the energy and diversity of contemporary alternative art.
The Street Art Open will support and promote Nottingham’s vibrant alternative arts scene by showcasing some of today’s best local talent. We also accept submissions from all around the world. In keeping with the spirit of the occasion, Surface Gallery welcome submissions from established and emerging artists working in a variety of disciplines, making it a truly inclusive and lively affair.
Building on the success of the 2013 Street Art Open, Surface Gallery embrace the salon style, packed from floor to ceiling: Graffiti / Alternative / Illustration / Paste‐Up / Graphics / Yarn bombing / Sticker tagging / Print. All submissions will be displayed: if it’s street it’s in.
Prizes will be awarded by our panel of judges: Dilk from Montana, Rastarella from Cultural Vibrations, and last year’s Street Art Open winner–Bzar. The prizes include a special prize provided by Montana as well as a £25 Montana voucher, £25 Shawe’s voucher, £25 London Camera Exchange voucher, £25 Knit Nottingham voucher, £25 Mimm voucher, and a solo exhibition in Surface Gallery’s new alternative art space: Le Loovre.
