We are offering artists the availability of a print browser to display mounted originals or prints for sale.  All works must be mounted, wrapped in cellophane, and clearly labelled with a title, artists name and price.  The browser will be placed by your hung work.  All items sold from the browser will be subject to a 30% commission.  A list of all works presented in the browser must be submitted when your work is hung.


A hanging space only costs £43.50.

For a space with a browser the cost is £61.50 or if received before 18th May £52.50.

The closing date for entries is midnight Sunday 16th June 2019.


Exhibition hanging time will be on Thursday 1st August between 3.30pm and 5pm, and Friday 2nd August between 8.45am and 9.30am.  Artists will be expected to hang their own work at the specified time within their allotted space.  All work must be strung for hanging.


All works sold will be paid in full to The Ilkley Art Show.  Artists will then be paid within 3 weeks of sale less 30% commission. Unsold work must be collected by the artist or their representative between 4pm and 5pm on Saturday 3rd August.


The number of original works you choose to exhibit is only limited by the space provided, but must be displayed professionally.  All work must be contained within the allotted space, if your work is large please indicate when you apply so we can accommodate.  Examples of the hanging space can be seen below.
