OVAS Exhibition 2024   

A highlight of the OVAS year is the Annual Exhibition.
In 2024 it will be held in July at Kennaway House, Sidmouth, home of the Southwest Arts Academy. 
All members may exhibit their work for a small fee and a modest % on sales  to aid society’s funds.  Artists may also sell cards of their work.
Work is judged by an independent visiting artist, with prizes awarded in several categories.

All exhibitors are required to do some stewarding of the exhibition - many hands make light work!

What You Need To Do:

  • If you use a framer for your pictures they may need plenty of notice.  Consider getting the best frames you can afford as this can make or break your pictures. It also helps the exhibition to look professional and of a high general standard, and makes the job of the hanging committee much easier.

  • All exhibitors must agree to steward during the sessions when we are open to the public.  Sue Green will be in charge of the rota. [See Rule 11 below]

  • On handing-in day, if you need to, you can drive into Kennaway to drop the artwork off but you can only stop for max 5 minutes. Even so, if you can avoid this it would be helpful as it could get quite busy. A reminder that delivery time depends on your surname: A - L 10 - 11a.m        M - Z 11a.m.-noon

  • You can find all the relevant information regarding entering art work on your forms [see below] , but please remember if you are entering cards, to fill in the separate form for this and send the form to Chris Poole.

The CARDS Entry Form

Again this year we are able to display your cards if you have them.

NB 1) This form [below] is only needed if you have printed cards to sell

2) Email completed forms to

Chris Poole [], not to Fiona Gale

We have not put a limit on the number of cards you can

put in of each design. It would be very helpful if you have, or

can borrow, your own card display stands. 

IMPORTANT: At end of exhibition please let Chris know the number of each card you have left so that he can calculate your sales and how much you are owed. (Preferably, use this form to record how many of each card design you have remaining at the end.)

or in pdf format if you prefer
