Ami: The Queen’s Head – An exhibition celebrating the Queen’s 90th Birthday.
We would like to invite artists of all ages to submit work as part of our 2016 exhibition.
Celebrating the Queen’s 90th Birthday, Making Space is organising an exhibition of work themed around the iconic image of The Queen’s Head stamp.
We hope to collect 90 artworks, which showcase a variety of styles and media. Submissions are welcome in any discipline: drawing, painting, photo, digital art, textile, print, collage etc. Please use the pre-designed template (see below) as all images need to be the same size to fit in the designated space. (Finished artwork size 14cm x 20cm)
Making Space will then make a selection from the images submitted to create a window Exhibition. Please bear this in mind when creating your piece of artwork. We can recommend using transparent materials, which allow light to travel through them such as tracing paper, acetate, thin material etc.
Work will be hung using glue dots adhered directly to the window. Making Space reserve the right to refuse use of an image if it is deemed inappropriate or if we are unable physically hang the work in the window.
Any images that don’t make the final window display will still be shown as part of an online album.
Artwork can be dropped off at Making Space during our Open Studios weekend on the 14 & 15 May (11am-4pm) or by an agreed time between 10am-4pm during the week from the 16 May – 1 June. Please call first if you’d like to drop work off to ensure someone at Making Space is present. Please note that Making Space does not have a post box.
Artwork should have artists name on the back and an email address.
The exhibition will stay up from the 6-11 June. If you’d like to collect the work after the exhibition, this can be done the week of the 20 June. Please speak to making Space to arrange a suitable time prior to calling by to ensure someone is in the building.
Making Space will keep any unclaimed artworks.

This is a great opportunity for emerging talent to be shown alongside established artists, as we will choose a varied selection.
