ISLAND Arts Virtual Gallery

Whilst a visit to ISLAND Arts Centre's gallery might be off the cards, a (virtual) visit to our latest exhibition is not.

Discover great art by local creatives who want to share their art, film and music on our virtual gallery space.  

Open Call to Artists and Creatives: Become part of ISLAND Arts Virtual Gallery. 

The ISLAND Arts team is focused on supporting creatives to be productive and collaborative during this challenging time. We have been actively seeking submissions of interest from artists, musicians, film-makers and crafters who would like to share their art, film or music on our bustling Virtual Gallery Space.  

This is the chance to reach a wide audience pool of up to 20,000 people and give further life to existing work (this is not a commission).  Artists will also have the opportunity to generate income from the sale of their work, if they wished to, but this is but this is not an essential part of the exhibiting. The works will go on show on ISLAND Arts' Virtual Gallery on a rotational basis and feature on our social media.

If interested in submitting work, creatives are encouraged to send links to their portfolio and a short bio (150 words max) on themselves and the themes/ideas behind the work to Christina at christina.hurson@lisburncastlereagh.gov.uk.  In the meantime, here is a taster of work submitted to date. Enjoy!
