The Erin Arts Centre seeks “Otherworld Artists” to submit work for a community exhibition.

Please apply online via Other World Artists or pick up a form from the Erin Arts Centre.

“We are staging a community exhibition here at Erin Arts Centre, inviting open submissions from local artists, taking their inspiration from any aspect of the spooky season!

All Hallows, All Saints, Hop Tu Naa, Halloween, Samhain, Day of the Dead, is a time of remembrance, of honouring the ancestors and the departed, a time when the veil between this world and the Otherworld is thin, allowing the spirits to move freely between the earthly and supernatural realms. It is also the beginning of winter, the darker half of the year.

Scroll down and complete the form below to apply, or speak to Pip & Lou in the office at the EAC. Call on 835858, email or simply drop in for a chat.
