ANNUAL MEMBER’S EXHIBITION

FOR MEMBERS ONLY

Our 2017 Member’s Exhibition is now finalised with new dates and venue.

The Exhibition will be in M16 Gallery 3 (Corridor), running parallel with the M16 Drawing prize.

However, as there is limited space, there will be two separate hangs of about 20 paintings in each, divided by genre.  The curator will make a judgement about which works to hang if too many are received.

The First Hang, on display for one week, will coincide with the M16 Drawing Prize Opening 6pm, Thursday 30 November.

The Second Hang will open with a CAW Exhibition Celebration with refreshments and presentation of merit awards (for both hangs) on Saturday 9 December at 2pm,  during the first of its two weekends on display.

Please open the Entry Form for more details and download to print and fill. Printed forms are also available in the studio. Note that your Entry Forms must be printed, filled in and placed in the designated box on the Studio counter by Friday, 24 November.
