The exhibition takes place on the Streatham Campus from Sunday 11 to 18 June.

Artists invited to engage with University’s inspirational research

How do you link one of the University of Exeter’s many world-class research themes to an artistic vision or idea? Well that is what South West artists are being encouraged to explore in entries for a new art exhibition.

Called the Observatory; perspectives on landscape, society and spirit, the aim is also for artists to share their observations about University of Exeter research with academics and a public audience.

The exhibition takes place this summer on the University of Exeter Streatham Campus from Sunday 11 to 18 June and artists are now being invited to submit work in any 2D medium except the moving image.

One of the shortlisted works will receive an award of £500 and visitors to the exhibition will also have a chance to vote for their favourite work as one piece will receive a visitors’ choice award of £200.

There will be a programme of events supporting the exhibition including a visitors’ activity day on Saturday 17 June.

Artists may be amateur or professional, but must be over 18 and live in the South West.

There is a non-refundable entry fee of £8 or £5 for students. The deadline for online submission of work and payment is midnight on Friday 31 March 2017.

Details on how to enter can be found on the Arts and Culture website.

Date: 15 March 2017
