Chalk Gallery call for artists

Chalk Gallery is run by fifteen local artists offering original, affordable art in Sussex.  We welcome submissions from artists interested in joining our team as a member as soon as we have a vacancy. New artists enjoy many benefits once they join Chalk.  This includes:

  • extensive promotion of your work via our newsletter, website, on-line shop, social media postings and many other marketing opportunities.

  • a comprehensive induction to ensure you are conversant with the working practices of the gallery plus further support from your personal Mentor.

  • Joining Chalk enables you to actively contribute towards the management of the business and running the gallery.

  • a wonderful and unique opportunity to develop and hone your skills as an artist in every respect.

Throughout the year Chalk Gallery also runs a programme of Guest Artists who are invited to exhibit in the gallery for the period of one of our exhibitions (normally 9 weeks). The many benefits of being featured as a Guest Artist at Chalk include:

  • a page in our online shop for the duration of the 9 week exhibition plus an extra 9 weeks following this.

  • promotion in our newsletter, along with our regular members and announcements of special events and new exhibitions.

  • being featured in our popular and well-attended events run (in normal times) on a regular basis, which invite our followers and the general public.

  • inclusion in our very active social media presence promoting our artists and guest artists on a daily basis, in addition to promoting our online shop on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.

  • As a very friendly group of artists we always make guest artists feel welcome in addition to offering you an opportunity to enlarge your audience.
