Based on 20 artists taking part, there will be 3-4 metres of wall space each


£50 per metre of wall space for 2D works

£50 per sculpture (negotiable depending on size and amount)

FPS commission: 30% + VAT

All framed works must be of high quality and contemporary in style (no gold gilt frames etc unless absolutely necessary please)
All works must have D-rings (not mirror plates) as no drilling is permitted in gallery.

Stewarding the exhibition:

The exhibition will need invigilation throughout the week and opening times will be from 1- 7pm so we will need members to cover these sessions. A roster and invigilation details will be supplied nearer the time.

Submitted work:

Only work that has been selected will be included in the show, although there will be provision for small unframed but mounted prints in plastic sleeves for the print racks.

Artist promotion material:

Can I please encourage all artists to get business cards and postcards printed and individual artist’s catalogues can be sold (cash only).

Exhibition Insurance:

Although great care will be taken of the work and Liability insurance will be provided by FPS for the show, artists are encouraged to have their own personal artwork insurance –

A good way of doing this would be to subscribe to A-N magazine who provide this as part of their subscription fee. (

Exhibition hanging:

The show will be hung by our usual hanger George Spencer and the exhibitions team.

Once the hanging is agreed, the exhibition as a whole is the responsibility of the gallery curators until the work is due to come down. Any changes or alterations for the duration of the exhibition are the responsibility of the curator.

Please email Gabriel if you have any questions –

Waiting for you is an exhibition by London artist Mandy Williams

Waiting for you is an exhibition by London artist Mandy Williams featuring photography and video from 2009-2013. 

The exhibition explores home as a place of aspiration and desire in the 21st century. Like her previous work, it is interested in the fusion of home and identity and how our social and affective lives interconnect. It looks at the seductiveness of home at a time of social instability. 


6. Mar - 19. Mar 13 / begins in 4 daysHOUSE
8.30am - 4.30pm Monday - Saturday
Privateview: 8. Mar, 6-8.30pm

Cultivate, Vyner Street

7th March and running through until 20th March. Once again the title of the show is vague and open to your interpretation, imagination. We’re thinking the fresh shoots of spring, lush painted canvas, greenness, ripeness, freshness, leaves, buds, flowers, life, green green green, fresh fresh, new… We invite submissions ideas, thoughts.

There are no size restrictions, no rules, if we think it fits and it excites us enough to want it on the walls or plinths of Cultivate then we’ll take it from there. The show is open to all artistic disciplines

For more information and full details please

Opening night: Thursday 28th March, 18:00 - 21:00
Then from: Friday 29th March - 9th April 2013

RED REVISED - Eighteen months on from the original takeover of our corner space, smack bang in the middle of Vyner Street and all that the street stands for, eighteen months on from the night of the naked red men, the rush to get the door open and then our first formal group show, Red… Eighteen months on we shall revisit the red theme. and in doing so, exam what was originally only going to be a six month artist-run exploration of things from a gallery-person’s point of view via the full time running of a space right in the centre of things.

RED REVISED, our 57th Cultivate event, bookends eighteen months (one more year than expected) in our Vyner Street space rather nicely…

RED REVISED will be a two week group show. For a second time we will fill our walls and plinths with art of a predominantly red nature, a diverse show and a busy space united in its redness.

RED REVISED will open on the evening of Thursday March 28th, with a second late night evening opening for April First Thursday (4th April). Usual gallery open times during the day (11.30am – 6pm Thursday to Sunday, by appointment, Monday - Wednesday).

We once again invite artists to submit art of a red nature, we envisage a room alive with vivid red art, we invite submissions from contemporary painters, small scale sculptors, street artists, print makers, maybe a photographer or two, anyone who thinks they have something to offer the show….

Artists who wish to get involved should make contact for more details…

CULTIVATE VYNER STREET is an artist-run space, we like people to get involved
