Submit Artwork for the new
Green-Gold Gallery, Geraldine.

Theme: Matariki
Submission Deadline: Wednesday 28th June, 5pm.
Hello there, 
I am Rachael Linton, and it is my pleasure to introduce myself as the new Gallery Director of the Green-Gold Gallery. I'd like to announce the long-awaited opening of our new art space! I would like to extend an invitation to our community of artists to exhibit in our first-ever Green-Gold gallery exhibition. This will be an opportunity for us to come together, meet and greet, and collectively envision the future of this amazing new Art gallery. The Green-Gold Gallery will be more than just a venue to display artwork; it is a vibrant community of art enthusiasts and supporters. With carefully curated exhibitions, art workshops, and cultural events, we aim to encourage collaboration, nationally and internationally, to inspire creativity, and connect our artists with a wider audience.
I would like to announce the Open Call for artists to submit their portfolios for representation at the Green-Gold Gallery in Geraldine. Our newly renovated gallery space is dedicated to showcasing living artists, with a focus on modern abstract, contemporary, and expressionist works. We invite artists from the local community and throughout New Zealand to be a part of this inaugural exhibition centered around the theme of Matariki.
As I eagerly await the completion of our new Green-Gold Gallery website, I also recognise timely action and wanted to ensure that this Open Call was made available to you as soon as possible. So...I have chosen to host it on my personal website for now, allowing you to participate without delay. As soon as the new gallery website is ready, all information and submissions will transition to the new platform.
The grand opening of the Green-Gold Gallery will centered around the theme of on Matariki -  Opening exhibition on July 14th, 2023. Matariki, is a new and significant holiday in New Zealand, symbolising new beginnings and renewal. So, It is the perfect time to introduce our new gallery and celebrate the talents of local established and emerging artists alike.
We warmly welcome artists to submit their artwork which loosely meets the Matariki-theme. When I think of Matariki, I think of the stars, or connection to our land and culture, to new beginnings and new year. What do you think of? This exhibition will highlight the best of our local talent and provide a platform for artists to connect with potential buyers and collectors. Our opening night will be a traditional wine and cheese evening, an elegant setting for artists and guests to engage with the art and each other, with the opening of the new gallery we will have much to cellebrate. 
I'd like to invite you to be a part of this exciting journey. Please read over the submission guide and fill out the application form online to submit your work for consideration for the show. If your works dont quite meet the Matariki theme at this stage, dont worry, I'd still really like to see what you do. I look forward to join us in creating a new and vibrant art community and to create an opening night worth remembering!
We look forward to reviewing your artwork and I can't wait to welcome you to the new space.
Friday 14th July, save the date, We would love to have you there to experience the captivating artworks on display. If you're interested in attending, please send us an email expressing your interest.
Any Questions about submitting your art for the show, Please don't hesitate to ask. 

Warm regards,
Rachael Linton - Gallery Director
