We're delighted to present a new exhibition opportunity for Upland Members in 2022 in partnership with the Biscuit Factory in Newcastle.

In 2022, Upland will be launching the 20th event of Spring Fling, so this exhibition aims to celebrate the diversity of the artists and makers who have taken part over the years, present members with a brand new commercial opportunity, and encourage visitors to the exhibition to visit the 2022 event.

An exhibition of work celebrating 20 years of Spring Fling by Upland Members from South West Scotland.

Dates: 14th May – 24th July 2022

What we are looking for

We are looking for a range of work in various disciplines that will reflect the breadth of practice of the Upland membership and showcase the diversity of Spring Fling Open Studios. Work will be selected for the exhibition by both Upland and The Biscuit Factory and will be based on the criteria below:

  • Work MUST be for sale
  • Work should be no more than 3 years old (no later than 2019)
  • Work should be in a range of prices across the exhibition to appeal to a range of budgets
  • Work should be no more than £3,000 (Please include commission in your pricing. Standard commission rates will apply).
  • Work possible for inclusion; ceramic, glass, sculpture, painting, original handmade prints, photographs, textile art. (The Biscuit Factory cannot accept video or installation works)

Selection for the show will be based upon the following:

  • How relevant submitted work is to the criteria outlined above
  • How the exhibition works as a whole (insuring a good mix of mediums, sizes and subject matter)

Applicants don't have to be taking part in or have applied to take part in Spring Fling 2022 but they must have taken part in the event over the last 20 years and be an Upland Member. If you would like to become an Upland member, find out more HERE.
