Untold Postcard Art Exhibition and Auction 2020

Rock Trust are warmly inviting artists to donate (A6) postcard-sized artworks to Rock Trust;s eighth biennial Postcard Art Exhibition and Auction!

100% of the proceeds of this exhibition and auction will go directly to support Rock Trust;s work helping young people to avoid and move on from homelessness in Scotland.

Alongside professional artists, this year we will also be asking young people (16-25) from the local community to submit entries to the exhibition, with the top 50 entries by young people (as decided by our professional judge) being selected for the exhibition and auction!

Previous exhibitions have included works by Norman Ackroyd, Ian Hamilton Finlay, Alison Watt and Stephen Mangan, among others. These events draw significant attention on social media (10,000 people reached via Facebook posts, 60,000 people reached via Twitter) and in the press, with coverage in both The Times and The Scotsman.

If you would like to support this event, then please kindly email andrew.marks@rocktrust.org  for more information and to receive your artist’s pack. 

From all of us at Rock Trust, thank you for your support!

Out of Sight Out of Mind Call for Art

People who have personal lived experience of mental health issues are invited to submit artworks to Out of Sight Out of Mind exhibition.

Last year more than 180 people took part and exhibited installations, projections, films, animations, paintings, drawings, sound works, prints, sculptures, and photographs.

You can submit artworks as an individual or as a group. This year one work per person can be submitted. Artworks can be proposed/submitted in any media and be any size. You are welcome to respond to this year’s Scottish Mental Health Art Festival theme which is ‘perspectives’, however this is not a requirement at all.

We are planning to hold the exhibition at Summerhall in Edinburgh during October 2020. The current situation may lead to changes such as its location, date or the exhibition being moved online. If you make a submission, we will let you know about changes.

How to make a submission: 

Get in touch to ask for the full guidance and submission form. The form needs to be returned to us by Friday 31st July 2020. 

If you would like to speak to us about your or your groups idea/artwork before submitting it, if you have any questions or would like a submission form, please email pam@capsadvocacy.org or leave a message for Pam on 07989402634.
