Make Gallery Open Call


Make Liverpool is giving artists the opportunity to show their work at Make North Docks. Each exhibition will run for two months at a time and will have an opening night for every new exhibition. For each exhibition there will be a set theme; if your work relates to a theme in any way please apply below.

Here are a few more details:

  • There will be someone there to help you set up on the day.
  • There will be an opening on the Thursday evening so please invite friends and family.
  • The work will be up for roughly two months at a time.
  • Work will be displayed in our bar area that is open for events and room hire.
  • Maximum of 4 pieces per person.
  • Commissions – Make will take 10% commission on any piece sold.
  • Marketing – we will market the exhibition, your work and the opening.
  • Artists names and prices will be listed underneath each piece of work.
  • There is no limit on how many themes you apply for but your work will only be selected for one exhibition.
  • Due to the nature of the venue we do ask for mainly wall based work and small sculptures.
  • We do have plinths that can be used.
  • Due to lack of funds we unfortunately cannot accept any pieces that require AV equipment (films, projections etc).
