exhibition and collaborative opportunity

well, i am very excited to be able to let you know that i am organising an exhibition with my lovely friend angela barrow, we'd love to have as many people as possible participating so here's everything you need to know ...

Call for submissions:

the dying of the sun - a meditation on fire

To celebrate the fourth annual International Day of Felt, Tracy Markey and Angela Barrow invite you to participate in their exhibition to be held at The Barn Gallery, Perthshire. The exhibition will run from 5th to 12th October 2012.

There are two opportunities available and artists are welcome to submit work for one or both of them.

Main Exhibition: Artwork can be 2D or 3D and must contain an element of felt. However, mixed/multi media pieces are encouraged. Artists can submit up to three pieces for consideration. Please be as creative as you wish with your interpretation of the theme!

Collaborative piece: With your help, we are going to create a huge fire inspired piece to form part of the exhibition.

We are seeking pieces for inclusion … think flames; smoke; sparks; embers ... these will then be assembled in situ to create one large piece of work.

Your piece(s) can be any size, shape and combination of colours, as long as they are made from felt (other textiles can be included but should not be the main material).

To register your interest, and receive further details, please send an email to Tracy Markey,, by Thursday 28th June 2012.

If you wish to be considered for the main exhibition please include three images of your previous work along with a description of the piece(s) you propose to submit for the exhibition.
