Get Arty-fish-al with LUA this Spring/Summer!

Homegrown: Artificial Things at Salisbury Arts Centre 


3 July – 17 August 2014


Performance showcase and Preview: 2July 2014 

Fishing for your unique representation of some marginalised aspect of yourself (or something that provokes the real/natural/artificial debate), interpreted as a fish, LUA is keen to exhibit a fantasy shoal as part of ‘Artificial Things’. Homegrown is Salisbury Arts Centre’s annual showcase of home-grown art, created by the artists, users, participants and this year: staff and trustees.

Inspired by the glass meeting place known as the goldfish bowl (in the SAC office), and not a little unaffected by the sheer volume of water drowning the Salisbury water meadows, we’re calling for you to get arty-fish-al!


Fabric fish, paper fish, collage fish – do get creative! See the links below to download free patterns for knitted fish and origami fish; Kingfisher poets are pondering fishy-shaped writings and LUA committee has begun assembling a mix of found and created parts into almost recognisable  members of the paraphyletic group of organisms (Wiki definition of fish!) 

Please contact us (by replying to this post, or using the contact details on our site)  as soon as possible, if you would like to take part. Don’t hesitate to get in touch, should you require assistance in participating.


An image or description of your finished work needs to be with us by 02/06/14. And the finished artwork delivered to SAC between 24-30 June. The exhibition will run until 18/08/14.
