Submissions for upcoming exhibition at Creamier is now open!


As announced at the end of the Toa Payoh sketchwalk, Creamier wants to team up with us to hold an exhibition on Toa Payoh in their store. This will be the first print exhibition for USK-SG, meaning that it does not involve original pieces. All art will resized, framed and be exhibited as prints (like posters). The exhibition will focus on Toa Payoh only. This exhibition will last 1.5years with a rotation of artworks every six months (because it is a small shop). This will be launched tentatively in September 2015. These framed prints will be for sale to the public. If sold, the artist will get the full proceeds. If it does not get sold, the artist will keep the print including the picture frame. It being a very small exhibition, Creamier will carefully curate the pieces and only the most suitable few will be selected. But submit anyways! They are open to a wide range of styles and you don't necessarily need to draw like Tia or Don Low to get selected:)

If you are keen to take part , please follow the guidelines to submit before end June 2015.

1. Please note that this exhibition represents the works of the Urbansketchers group. So you must have attended a few sketchwalks and consider yourself a member before submitting.

2. Make sure that your sketch is drawn on location in Toa Payoh.

3. Scan in colour. Make sure your art work is 600dpi and is not blurry.
This is so they can enlarge it. If you need help with scanning, you can contact victor@trine.com.sg or tel: 64764533. Their office is at Toa Payoh near SPH and Epigram. If your file is bigger than 10mb, please use wetransfer.

4. Zip the file before you send it off. 
(You will need to do this if you use wetransfer too.
Right click and you will see compress "file name". That will create a file like "filename.zip".)

5. State your name.

6. Add a short description of your sketch
eg. hawker centre at blk XX To Payoh Lor X. You can put it in the file name.
