PRSC is inviting Bristol artists to take part to ‘Buy or Burgle It’, an outdoor exhibition on Jamaica Street wall, which will run throughout December.

Application Deadline: Friday 17 November

PRSC friends

Here is an exciting opportunity for you to show your artwork during BUY OR BURGLE IT – outdoor 24/7 rolling exhibition.

We are currently inviting artists to apply to showcase their work (up to 4 each artist) during Buy or Burgle It, an outdoor rolling exhibition on Jamaica Street wall, which will run throughout December from Saturday 2 until the 23. Once the artwork is sold, it will be removed from the wall and another work will replace it. Thus, will a rolling exhibition be created.

Please bear in mind your artwork will hang on PRSC Jamaica Street wall, where it will be vulnerable to weather conditions and vandalism perhaps. 

Are you up to push your pictorial experimentation towards weatherproof solutions and take on the challenge of exhibiting outdoor?

Further Info:

Buy or Burgle It

Opening: Friday 1 December, 6-10pm

Run: Sat 2 – Sat 23 December 24/7

The exhibition is designed to provide an outlet for aspiring and established artists to showcase and sell their work, and to offer to the public the opportunity to purchase artworks to affordable price. Artworks showcasing in the outdoor gallery can be purchase by our Stokes Croft China shop open 7 days a week.

Creative experimentation, trust and respect are central elements of this exhibition. Also, the outdoor exhibition challenges established ideas of private property, public space and commercial enterprise.

PRSC retain the right to swap artworks exhibited on the wall during the duration of the exhibition, towards the concept of rolling exhibition. Once the artwork is sold, it will be replaced with another artwork. Paintings will be sold at prices determined by the artists, through PRSC Stokes Croft China. Profit from any work sold will be split 50/50 between the artist and the PRSC. If unsold, the artwork will return to the artist. We will be using security anti-theft picture frame hangers to allow the artworks to be more securely attached to the wall.
