The deadline is looming to be part of the Naked Aye group exhibition in October. Deadline is the 5th Sept – midnight. The submissions are coming in thick and fast and we’ve received some terrific submissions so far.

One of the wonderful things about the Naked Aye pop-up exhibition this spring, was the range of work and artists on show – and we want October’s exhibition to showcase a really diverse and interesting response to the body. Whether you are a photorealist or Scotland’s answer to Jackson Pollock – we are interested in many different and diverse responses to the theme. If your work deals with the body – however abstractly – we are interested in hearing from you.

Scotland has produced some brilliant painters of the body such as Jenny Saville and Alison Watt. Indeed the latter shows in her beautiful and eery drape pictures that you don’t have to literally paint a body for the work to be all about its implied presence.

And we’re not just interested in painting. Printing, photography, mixed media, film and video, sculpture…Gallery 1 at St Margaret’s House is an amazing space to bring together a wide diversity of work and different media. Have you a performance piece you wish to develop or a workshop you’d be interested in proposing? Now is the time.  (Works in progress can also be submitted). One of the purposes of Naked Aye is to bring different artists together – we’re interested in reaching out to all forms of practise.

So if you’re still umming and ahhing – don’t  delay any longer. The form is simple and takes ten minutes to fill in.  Here it is. You just need to add a few pictures of your work.

Don’t miss out on the chance to be part of this exciting and unique event. Good luck!
