Sit In / Take Away

Sit-In / Take Away is an exciting addition to the SSA Annual Open Exhibition offering a fantastic selection of small works for sale at very affordable prices.

All SSA members are invited to submit works for Sit-In / Take Away. Throughout the exhibition, works will be on show in browsers and a changing wall display.

To take advantage of this opportunity, please follow the submission guidelines detailed below.

We look forward to receiving your work!

Submission guidelines: 
All SSA members can submit one work, and Professional Members can submit up to two works.

All work must be:

  • Unframed
  • Mounted on a 30 x 30 cm board (The work itself can be smaller but must fit within 30 x 30 cm)
