ARTSWOP in Belfast

Thanks to rockpoolcandy for letting us know about a great event happening in the Blick Studios in Belfast. If you're up that side of the country, check it out...

Get your art out...
If you are an artist who would like to get your hands on someone else's original work or you are an art aficionado with more art than you know what to do with - then BLICK ARTSWOP is just the ticket

ARTSWOP THE IDEA: you bring along a piece of work you are happy to part with and take home someone elses.

Thur 12th Feb 2009 7.30pm

BLICK Studios, 51 Malone Rd

£10 / £7 blick member

Participants are invited to register one piece of their work and drop it off at BLICK the Friday before the event - clearly labelled with contact info on the back.
At the ARTSWOP everyone's work is displayed and following warm-up drinks, you are given the time to browse the showcased work and choose your favourite pieces. Then during a short ten minute time-slot guests rate their top three with the BLICK ARTSWOP tagging system and the bartering begins!

All guests will be treated to drinks and the laid back beats of dj sofakid.

If you would like to register for BLICK's artswop please send an email to: events@blickstudios.org

The nitty-gritty:
There are 50 spaces available for the art swopshop and places are allocated on a first come first served basis with a waiting list system operating. All participants must register before Wed 4th Feb and then bring the work of art they wish to swap to BLICK Shared Studios on Wed 11th Feb between 1am and 6pm

The art should be labeled with the owner's name, email and contact number.

BLICK events reserve the right to remove unsuitable works from the artswop.
Any verbal agreement's made during the evening should be honoured.
All agreements made are 'gentlemen's agreements' and BLICK do not accept responsibility for any broken contacts. Do NOT agree to swop priceless or irreplaceable artwork; bring along artwork you are willing to part with. Swopped artwork is taken away on the night by the new owner.
Do NOT be offended if your work is not chosen first time round as all art is subjective.
Art is not necessarily swopped from person to person but on an event basis.
If you do not appear on the evening without prior notification your art will not be removed from the swop.
All artists can bring one guest, cost £5
Paintings, photographs, sculpture, 3d all welcome

To participate £10 / £7 BLICK members / £5 artist guest
