SSA | VAS OPEN | 30 x 30

Our ever-popular 30 x 30 small works display returns to our annual exhibition this year, offering a fantastic varied selection of small works for sale at affordable prices.

All Society members are welcome to submit work. There is no selection process and there is no entry charge. Throughout the exhibition works displayed on rotation in our changing display.

Each artist may submit up to three unframed works mounted on a 30cm x 30cm board (The work itself can be smaller but must fit within 30cm x 30cm). Please note if your submission includes a three-dimensional element this must be displayed within a presentation box and can be purchased HERE. Artists may choose the size most appropriate for the piece of work, but it must be from this company and must be this aesthetic/style. The box/boxes should be submitted alongside your piece of three-dimensional work.

All works must be clearly labelled on the back of the work with the following:


We are setting a maximum price of £350 for each work, with sales commission applied: Professional members will be charged a rate of 35% on the sale price of all work sold. Ordinary, graduate, student will be charged a commission of 40% on the sale price of all work sold.
