OPPORTUNITY: HSG Open Call 2022
HSG Open Call invites artists, printmakers and designers to submit pre-existing limited editions and original artworks to be displayed for free on the walls of our exciting ground floor café and bar space. These can either be submitted as a series or a single work and will be shown alongside the work of other artists or in some cases as solo presentations.
We are keen to showcase the work of artists who are based in the city or have an association with Hull and the surrounding region.
Beginning in January 2022, the works on display will change throughout the year and will typically be on display for a period of between 2 – 4 months.
