Exhibit with Fresh Arts

Are you an artist, community group, school or arts organisation who would like to exhibit work with Fresh Arts at Southmead Hospital Bristol?

We welcome artworks from a wide range of groups and individuals to be part of our rolling programme of exhibitions.

Exhibit with Fresh Arts

Two of our spaces are managed by artist collectives, one is open for applications from artists and artist groups and one is available for use by schools & local community groups. We want to make it easy for our local community to create high quality exhibitions of their work, so we have a stock of oak frames for schools’ and local groups’ use.

The displays are changed three times per year to keep the galleries fresh and exciting for our patients, staff and visitors.

We offer local and national artists an opportunity to reach a broad audience with their work, in a high quality display environment.

Our criteria
We ask that artists check the following criteria when considering applying to exhibit:

  • A body of work – If you would like to exhibit as an individual it is important that you have a body of work which can fill our large exhibition space. We also welcome applications from collectives of artists who are able to supply a group exhibition suitable for the space
  • Sensitive materials – We select artworks which are appropriate for a busy hospital setting where some patients and visitors may be experiencing stress or emotional challenges
  • Insurance – We do not hold insurance for artworks exhibited with us, so this needs to be considered by artists/groups before applying
  • Quality of work – The Fresh Arts programme Quality Statement. We ask that artists read the statement before applying.
