I mean that Pat Heffer, the Exhibition Secretary has now released the figures for the 8th UKCPS Open International Exhibition 2009 - how many people sent how many entries and how these have changed since last year.
So if you want to know what your entry is up against, read on!
|Last Year||This year||Change|
|No. of entries||153||162||+9|
|No. of artists||72||72||no change|
|No. of entries from the UK||55||61||+6|
|No. of overseas artists||17||11||-6|
|No. of artists from:|
It's very likely that the credit crunch has had an effect on the number of entries from overseas - due to the cost of shipping work to the exhibition.
The space available in the gallery at Birmingham is, I understand, bigger than that which has previously been available for UKCPS exhibitions. So we can now all wait with baited breath to see if that means more works are going to get hung this year!
