Proposals DUE 20 April for exhibiting at Watt Space during July – December 2012

Watt Space offers such an amazing opportunity for the students of UON to experience gallery exhibiting without the pressures of a commercial gallery. It also gives you the chance to see how your work looks outside the studio and to reflect on what you’re doing and where you’re going with it.
