Calling all local artists… An exciting new art project for Blewbury!
We have a grant from the Vale of White Horse District Council for a village art project. Initially linked to the village hall refurbishment, this one-off commission now has a wider remit – to celebrate our village and all that makes it a special place to live. It will be sited on a public open space in Blewbury.
We are seeking a local artist to lead on this opportunity, and will favour applicants who can demonstrate how they will involve the community in their design. The artwork could be in any medium or material – as long as it is durable and reasonably easy to maintain – and could celebrate any feature or aspect of the village, from historic architecture to chalk streams, downland views to atomic energy!
Interested artists should contact email@example.com for an email copy of the brief. A paper copy can be provided if required. The brief details the application process, including how to submit your ‘expression of interest’ in time for the deadline of 17th October. The Blewbury Art Project steering group – made up of artists, villagers and PC reps – will then shortlist applicants to discuss their ideas, before appointing the winning artist. We hope to install the new artwork during next spring/summer, and can’t wait to see your ideas…
