Expression of interest
Artisan Collective Port Stephens Incorporated is a collaboration of local artists and makers in the Port Stephens area run by volunteers. If you’d like to register your interest in exhibiting or becoming a member please fill in the form below.
We offer the opportunity for artists to exhibit with Artisan Collective on a one month, Exhibiting Artist basis. Currently we have filled the remainder of 2020 Exhibiting Artist places. We are working towards 2021 Exhibiting Artists, although exhibition spaces can change from month to month and can become available so we ask for patience and understanding as we do our best to accommodate this.
The selection process is shortlisted by our exhibiting artist committee before being forwarded to the collective for approval. Shortlisted artists need to meet a certain criteria, that includes (but is not limited to): creating high caliber unique works; availability of display space in the gallery; and current exhibiting/variety of art mediums. This process can take time and we thank you for your patience.
If you have registered previous to June 2020 to please re-register if you are still interested, we encourage a mix of artists and makers and look forward to seeing your works and sharing your talents.
All current members of the Artisan Collective Port Stephens are required to:
- Provide high quality, unique, handcrafted art/products
- Be willing to contribute to the continuous success of the gallery
We offer a unique opportunity to display and sell in our retail gallery space, currently based by the water in the D’Albora Marina Nelson Bay. We have a range of exhibiting options available for non-members, including one month “Exhibiting Artists”, short term exhibiting artists and workshop space hire. Full-time memberships are limited due to the amount of space that we have at our current location.
We ask that you allow at least 4 weeks to hear back, as every application is presented to the Collective for approval, and are kept on file for future openings.
Applications are assessed on a range of criteria that includes (but not limited to) quality of work, wall/floor space available, art medium and current displaying artists (variety is essential). You can help us assess your application by providing as much information as possible below, with examples of your work.
