The Aim :

The aim of exhibition is give artists the opportunity to connect and build the art community within the city. We are using the festival dates to utilise the amount of visitors to the area, therefore maximising the visibility of the artworks and sales opportunities. The exhibitions will take place on particular Saturdays over the summer months, with the artwork hung from railings in specified spaces within and surrounding the Viking Triangle from 11am to 4pm.

How It Works :

• Simply get in touch via email or Facebook. The Coordinator will send you out a Submission Form to be signed and retuned. Once returned, a space will then be reserved. This form is to ensure that AOTR’s has all necessary contact details for each artist on file
• Artist spaces are approximately 4 feet across and artwork is to hang from railings only.
• The event is held from 11am to 4pm each Saturday and we ask all artists to be in place 30 minutes before event at a minimum.
• AOTR’S 2017 Exhibition is weather dependent. All participants will be expected to make contact with the coordinator the morning of the event should weather conditions be a barrier to continuing on that day.
• The organisers retain a discretionary policy for participation, please do not hang anything that would offend our visitors, children or your mother!
• A booking fee of €10 per event, per artist and non-refundable. This booking fee must be paid on the morning of/or before set up to the AOTR Coordinator.
• AOTR’s does not hold artwork insurance. There are no facilitators on site so supervision of the space/work is solely the responsibility of the artist.
• Artists will be grouped accordingly including collectives, groups and/or mediums as appropriate.

Application form and more details can be accessed on the NOTES tab to the left hand side of the Art On The Railings Waterford FB page HERE or contact the Coordinator at the email below.
