Exhibition Invitation 2015 – Ravenstein Museum, Netherlands
The Museum voor Vlakglas- en Emaillekunst is celebrating its 10th anniversary and Jan Klink is planning a year ofcelebrations by organising 6 special exhibitions, two months each, of enamelled art works from various countries. The exhibition will be dedicated to the Dutch painter Hieronymus Bosch and the exhibitions may be seen as forerunners or introductions to the Year of Hieronymus Bosch which will be celebrated in the Netherlands in 2016.
Jan Klink has invited British enamellers to show their art work from 1st July to 31st August 2015; there will be an exhibition of Dutch enamels inspired by Hieronymus Bosch in the main room. Please note it is requested that all work submitted for consideration should have relation to or be inspired by, the work of Hieronymus Bosch.
More information can be found on http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hieronymus_Bosch
The Museum would like you to submit images of the following types of work; wall panels, jewellery and 3D pieces (not be taller than 15cm high). Wall panels should have strong fixings of the screw hook and picture wire type. These should be set at least 3cm down from the top of the backing board so they are not seen whilst displayed.
Members may submit as many images as they wish.
Images must arrive at the museum no later than 1st June 2015, but if possible send your images in well before this date and include description of piece(s) and measurements.
The jury will make the selection and advise members before 8th June 2015.
Work will be for sale unless you state otherwise. It would be helpful to Mr Klink if you could state the price for pieces in Euros. The museum will then add commission of 25% (plus 21% VAT on commission) to calculate the sale price. The museum will contact you about this should your work be chosen.
All work should be received by the museum no later than 21st June 2015. This will allow members 2 weeks to arrange delivery of their work to the museum.
The opening of the exhibition will be Wednesday 1st July 2015.
The closing date of the exhibition is Monday 31st August 2015.
Ideally images should be sent by email, but DVD or CD is also acceptable if necessary. Include a covering letter with your name and contact details if sending a DVD or CD. Please mark your name clearly on the DVD or CD.
Images should be JPG and at least 1Mb in size. Please ensure all of the images have a title and your name on them.

Anyone submitting work must make arrangements to insure it whilst it is in transit to and from the museum. The museum’s insurance will cover all work whilst on display. The Guild cannot be held responsible for any loss or damage to work submitted by members.
Lesley Miller has kindly offered to collect and transport all of the work at the end of the exhibition. Details for return of work to members will follow in a later edition of the Journal. It is likely that there will be a charge for each person submitting work, to cover transportation costs back to the UK.
We appreciate that this invitation might seem a little daunting to members who may not have exhibited before but the Executive Committee are keen to encourage all members to consider submitting work for this exhibition. If you require any more information contact either:
