Looking for a way to get creative while stuck at home? Why not take part in ROSL's biennial charity exhibition, Incognito. Submit your own anonymous postcard artwork and help to raise money for the arts and education programmes ROSL supports around the Commowealth and beyond.
At the beginning of 2020, ROSL launched the call for entries to be displayed at our Igcognito charity exhibition in December 2020. We are inviting artists to create and donate ‘postcard’ artworks to be exhibited anonymously, and in this callout we asked artists to send their postal information to receive a pack later this year. Considering many of us are currently in isolation, we would like to share the artwork requirements with the hope that this charity project can give a creative focus to some of our time indoors.
- Each artwork is to be on A6 card or paper (105 x 148 mm, 4.1 x 5.8 in)
- Please do not sign the front of the work, the sale is anonymous.
- On the reverse, please write your name and sign the work here, also include artwork title, media used and if you are able, please include any contact information (website, social media, email address) so the buyer may find out more about you.
- There is no limit to the number of artworks that can be submitted.
Please post submissions to ROSL ARTS, Royal Over-Seas League, Over-Seas House, Park Place, St James's Street, London, SW1A 1LR. If the work meets the above requirements the artwork will be offered for sale on a first-come, first-served basis for £50, with the artist’s name only revealed after the artwork is purchased.
Taking place in December 2020, this is the third edition of our Incognito charity art exhibition and sale. Following the success of the 2016 and 2018 editions, which presented over 307 submissions and raised over £6,000, we are looking forward to 2020 and seeing what is created and donated. All the money raised from each sale will go to support the work of the ROSL Trust (Charity No.306095), focusing on our work encouraging and enabling arts education around the globe.
Sale Launch Tuesday 15 December, exhibition open until 2021.
