Rum's Eg are inviting professional and amateur artists to submit work for this special open exhibition in their professional high street gallery. This is their first open entry community exhibition and work must be submitted on 22nd June when it will be judged by a selection committee; all accepted work will be hung on the first and second floors from 2nd to 27th July.
As well as conventional sketches of Romsey, the surrounding villages, countryside and people, in all media, Rum's Eg are hoping to see some exciting interpretations and unusual media and materials.
Here are a few suggestions of inspirational local subjects: Romsey Abbey (inside and out), King John's House and garden, Saddlers Mill, Market Place, Hillier Gardens, Mottisfont Abbey & Gardens, Broadlands, village churches, River Test, fishing, local wildlife and gardens, people in local pubs and cafes, local sports, events and fetes.
The exhibition entry form can be downloaded here.
