The featured listings above this note all use the OESS to manage your artwork entries, therefore we are pretty sure they are legitimate calls. Many will charge entry fees to cover administration and exhibition costs so we recommend you consider their offerings very carefully before deciding if they are worthwile for you.

All the listings below are managed independently of the OLIST and OESS, therefore we cannot confirm their accuracy or reliability, we recommend that you thoroughly check and research all details before making any payments. Please check with the organiser for more information.

We cannot check all the listings posted to this site but if you suspect a scam, please let us know and we will investigate and if necessary remove them from The OLIST

 

Curators and Exhibition Organisers - Please Note:
Due to the rise in the number of scams and profit making schemes targeting artists, from 1st June 2018 we will no longer accept listings from profit making organisations unless they are using the OESS submission system.
If you are a charity or a 'not for profit' organisation you can still add your listing for free. However we reserve the right not to show your listing on The OLIST if we cannot confirm your charitable or 'not for profit' status from the details you submit.

It will be one of the first projects to be presented at the Crafts Council following its opening in Spring 2020. Objects in the Crafts Council Collections date from 1972 to present day and cover all craft disciplines. They represent excellence in craft making, defined in its widest sense, from its interface with cutting-edge design to its crossover with fine art.
