An article about 'OPEN' a group of illustrators who share a studio space with the philosophy to: "provide support, criticism, dialogue, fairness, opportunity, a sense of belonging and fresh ambition" - similar values to that of TPC (The Picture Club). They also accept graduate portfolio's.

Salford Zine Library


This is worth a look for anyone in the practice of producing zines and self published work. It's a growing library of this kind of thing and aims to tour as well as gather and archive it's collection. Submissions are welcome and it seems like a fun thing to be a part of...as well as another chance to get your work out there. It's also a kind of interesting model for alternative ways of doing that.

Highland Print Studio Residency (PAID!!)

Got this over the Arts Council Job email. There is paid residency going at the Highland Art Studio up in Inverness. The position involves 50% teaching and 50% doing your own thing, for a year on 20K. Take a look at the website (though there is no information about the residency on it) and for more info email or an application pack. Deadline is the 27th of September.
I recently read about a printmaker who did this and it really gave her career a kick start.

Open Submissions


Here is an opportunity to submit some work for an exhibition with just about as little effort possible. Apparently the guy who organises this is really keen to get as many international submission as possible so go for it! It's a digital thing so you only need to submit over the internet, but all the info is there on the website - take a look.

Some Open-Minded Magazines

I went browsing in a chain bookstore in Anchorage and found a few interesting magazines that publish art work along side written work by both established and up and coming artists. Take a look, it might be worth submitting. They all seem to accept unsolicited submissions.
Interestingly, a couple seem to be affiliated with universities...just thought I'd mention that.
