Deptford art materials shop opening/call for submissions
Arch Gallery is branching out on 10 July with the opening of a new shop, Arch Materials, selling a wide range of paints, brushes, canvasses, pencils, pens and so on for professionals and students. The shop is right next to the gallery (which halfway down Resolution Way, one of the arches on the lane directly opposite Deptford railway station entrance).
The shop will be open Tuesday to Saturday, 10am till 5pm, and to celebrate its opening, Arch Materials will be having a 'VAT-free' week from 10th to 17th July.

Submissions for Arch Gallery's contemporary Open exhibition are also being invited, and entry forms are available to download from the website. From 10 July you can also collect them from the new shop.
"The aim of the open is to catch a glimpse of the diverse nature of the art being made here and now in South East London. Visual artists & students over 18, living or working in South East London are eligible to submit. Up to 10 artists will be selected to exhibit one piece of work each. In a take on the current trend for reality based TV shows, visitors to the gallery during Deptford X will be invited to vote for their favourite work. The artist receiving the most votes will be given a four week solo show at ARCH in 2010. We will host a preview evening for the show and pay for all marketing & publicity. Deadline for submissions is 31st July. Visit www.archgallery.net for more info."
