Opportunity for Artists: Open Call for SFRM

6th January 2016

Spring Fling Rural Mural (#SFRM) will see a collective of local, Scottish and international artists paint large-scale murals at rural sites across Dumfries and Galloway for Spring Fling 2016.

Spring Fling Rural Mural was launched in 2014 to huge acclaim and appreciation. The project saw 11 artists collaborate to produce numerous large murals across the region on buildings, vehicles and unusual objects. Upland has again joined forces with urban art specialists, Recoat, to grow and evolve this innovative project.

Call Out for SFRM Artists

We are looking for Upland artists to take part. We need artists who are interested in collaboration and open to working with others to learn new skills and create concepts.

The artists will collaborate to create large-scale murals in both D&G and the Recoat artist’s home city. Therefore we need artists who have some experience of painting and obviously experience of painting larger works would be of benefit, but it is not essential.

The murals in D&G will be painted between the 2nd– 17th April and the murals in other cities after Spring Fling 2016 in the summer.

Please email your CV, a statement that outlines why you would like to take part in the project (no more than 1 side A4) and up to 8 example images of your work to (joanna@spring-fling.com).

The deadline for SFRM applications is Monday 25th January 2016.

Previous SFRM applicants and participants can apply but should explain clearly in their statement why they should be considered again. Non-member applications welcome (membership needed if successful). SF 2016 participants who have noted interest in taking part in their application should send a statement outlining why you would like to take part. No images necessary.
