Got Sole?!

‘There is a journey to your soul that is often determined by the footsteps you take’ The ‘sneaker’ (trainer) is more than a fashion statement, not just a sports accessory. The sneaker takes a journey with the feet that wear them, and that journey gives life to what some may dismiss as an object and dispose of with disregard. On Saturday the 3rd May, in the South West of England we shall be curating an exhibition of trainer inspired artwork, using this idea as the creative brief for the artists. We shall be running a competition for a chance to exhibit work and win a cash prize. Attached to this email is the Artist Brief and Application Form. We are looking forward to receiving the Art!! Kind regards, Got Sole?! Team. Find us on Instagram: IGOTSOLE_ For any queries, please contact us via email: gotsole@live.com

or phone Katy (Artist Liaison) on 07734311474.
