Call for artists

by flashsays

Slate, a window display space in Leytonstone, is calling for artists for 6 week shows during 2012. This is an opportunity for new and established artists to exhibit their work in a central location just a couple of minutes from the tube station. Slate focuses on community arts and welcomes proposals from community groups as well as individuals.

Any “flat art” is suitable, as it would be displayed on boards just inside the windows. One window is 2.4m wide, the other two are 1.8m wide. There is a token cost of just £10 to exhibit. More information is available in the exhibition guidelines (on the About page, at

To apply, email with a description of your art and details of how you would use the space. Please attach photographs or link to a website with images of your work. If there are any dates in 2012 when you are not available to exhibit, let us know that too.

You don’t need to have exhibited before but you do need a vision of how you will use the display space. Share that vision with us and we could see your art at Slate.
