The William Humphreys Art Gallery (WHAG) is calling on artists residing in the Northern Cape to submit their work for selection to participate in the 2018 Northern Cape Artists Exhibition.

The exhibition will open in Kimberley on Wednesday, 20 June, and will end on 18 July.

Artists are allowed to submit a maximum of three artworks in any medium of their choice.

If you have submitted work for this exhibition before, please submit new work. Submissions are not open to school learners.
