Dear John

Thank you for your submission to the Signs interventions for the Folk Art Collection at Compton Verney Gallery. Congratulations, we are very pleased to say you have been successful in your application. We were very impressed with your artwork and felt this met the theme brilliantly, specifically two photographs from the three that you have sent us. We would like to accept the two images showing signs. Please contact me tomorrow to discuss a possible third addition for display. Can you also tell me if these are high res images.

We are asking artists to deliver work to our drop-off point at: Floor 4, Artspace, Eaton House, Coventry CV1 2FJ between 10am and 1pm Wed 4th – Friday 6th March 2020. Please ask for Mindy Chillery, Executive Director at Artspace. If you have any issues then please contact me as a matter of urgency on the mobile number below.

The artworks will display as part of the Folk Art Collection 20 March 2020 – 3 January 2021 and will be launched as part of our new programme in the Midlands.
