We now feature the work of one artist per day across all our social media channels using the hashtag #CWCArtDaily.
From installation, sculpture, painting, performance and everything in between, we will select and share the very best from around the world.
To be considered, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with 2 images of your work, together with artwork title, your name and your social media handles (twitter, instagram, facebook).
Please name the files as follows:
Make sure the files are 72dpi
The volume of submissions means we aren't able to respond to your emails, and we will only connect with you on social media, when and if you are featured, 365 days a year.
Participation is free, unlimited and worldwide.
Chiara Williams Contemporary Art launches a new project in Margate.
DRY RUN is a series of events in the form of peer-to-peer critiques structured around presentations of work-in-progress; a safe and supportive space in which artists and curators can test out new work and ideas and receive feedback and constructive criticism.
Each of these 'art crit' sessions is centred around the work of two artists or curators. Chiara Williams invites a participant to invite another participant and both of these invite 5 guests each to attend the evening event.
