We are looking for artists at any stage in their careers to submit a work for a group show that investigates their experiences as artists living and working in Sydney.

Gaffa Gallery is committed to nurturing emerging art, craft and design. This year in collaboration with early career curator Pearl de Waal, we would like to investigate how living and working in Sydney – our hometown – influences local artists’ work.

-        There is no participation fee, gallery fee or any other fee required from participating artists

-        Gaffa takes 25% commission but artist may opt NFS

-        The exhibition will run over April 26 - May 7. Artists must be available to install their work on April 25 (Anzac day) and to de-install their work on May 8.

-        You must be an artist living and working in Sydney

-        You will need to give an artist talk on your work

-        Successful applicants will work closely with Gaffa and external curatorial staff to present work for this exhibition.

-        Submission deadline: 1 March 2018
