The Paper Stage Open Call #2

The Paper Stage is an artist-run platform that puts on drawing classes, workshops, organises artist talks and pop-up exhibitions. More information about the project and the artists can be found here.
Our second exhibition open call is an invitation for artists to consider the place of drawing in the context of their art practices. Please respond to the theme we propose — contemporary approaches to depicting the figure and its relationship to places, both real and imagined.
The exhibition will take place from the 4th until 13th of April at the Edinburgh Palette, with an opening event on Friday 5th April from 6-8pm. More details via our Instagram.
* Please note that, unlike our first open call, this exhibition will take place in the same large space, but with fewer participating artists. Please do not be disheartened if your application is not successful this time. We aim to showcase more of each selected artist’s work.
