Open Call for Artists – Rooftop Annual Summer Show

Our annual open art exhibition is back for July and August 2022 and application forms are available from the gallery or online via the link below.

The deadline for applications is Saturday 9th July.

Entry costs £15 for adults and £5 for Associate Members, under 18’s, and students.

The Annual Summer Exhibition is an open entry show available to artists from Northamptonshire and the surrounding counties. This year will see our Annual Summer Exhibition, our first since 2019, open as the first show in our new premises on New Post Office Square in Corby Town Centre.

Our new premises are on the ground floor with direct access to the high street which will be a huge benefit to both the artists and the town centre. With increased footfall and exposure our exhibitions, workshops, events, and studios will have a much greater audience and local impact.

The exhibition aims to give new and emerging artists the opportunity to show their work for the first time and allow established artists to have a continued presence in the area. We welcome applications from artists at all stages of their careers in a variety of different creative disciplines.

PLEASE HELP US KEEP OUR MUCH LOVED AND VERY POPULAR ART CENTRE RUNNING

Since 2012 the Rooftop Arts Centre (RAC) in Corby has been sparking creativity in people of all ages and artistic abilities.

Our aim is to inspire, stimulate and support creativity.

The RAC provides creative outlets for children and adults through various classes and workshops, as well as local events that include poets, performers and musicians. Our current Friends Of The Rooftop include the local NHS hospital, the Oakley Vale Alzheimer’s Group, Northants Adult Learning and Age Concern UK. There is also the opportunity for artists in the community to share their work through various exhibitions on site.

The RAC also houses affordable artists’ studios. The studios enable artists to work together with other artists and share their work with visitors to the RAC, giving advice and support to emerging artists. We also offer volunteer positions enabling people in the community to become involved in the workings of a gallery.

We offer a welcoming and friendly environment.

After 10 years in our current location, the RAC is relocating to a new home to make way for a Tresham 6th form college.

As a registered not for profit charity we rely solely on goodwill and donations to keep the RAC functioning.

We are looking to raise funds to help us with our move into the new premises in the town centre. Donations collected will go towards running costs, building new classrooms and workshops, and replenishing classroom supplies.

Your support at any level will make a huge difference to the local art community.
