An Tobar's Winter Open Exhibition
2 November - 21 December 2019
Opening Night Sat 2 Nov from 6-8pm, all welcome.
Artists from Mull, Iona and Argyll are invited to submit New Work using the theme YELLOW.
This year’s programme at An Tobar Gallery has brought us exhibitions by artists whose works have explored aspects of the relationship between humans and the environment. This relationship has been brought to the forefront of our thoughts this year. The world’s weather patterns are changing and we are all becoming increasingly aware of this.
In 2003 Artist Olufar Eliasson exhibited “The Weather Project” at Tate Modern, in which the space was bathed in yellow light. The summer temperatures in Europe that year were at a record high.
This year Eliasson exhibited again at the Tate Modern. He has posted photos on his website showing the final disappearance a glacier in his native Iceland, the result of global temperature increase.
The summer temperatures in Europe were again at a record high, quite a powerful coincidence.
We are using this link to the Yellow of the original Weather Project as a basis for the theme for this year’s An Tobar open exhibition.
The theme YELLOW is open to free interpretation by the artist. Entries are welcomed from artists and craftspeople from Mull and Iona, Argyll and Bute and previous exhibitors at An Tobar. Work in a variety of media is acceptable including: painting, sculpture, printmaking, photography, textiles, ceramics, jewellery, digital and electronic media.
This will be an 'art for sale' exhibition, work accepted for YELLOW will be exhibited in the galleries, shop and café at An Tobar.
Please see our conditions of entry for more information.
Submission forms will be available from 12 September 2019 from An Tobar or from this webpage.
