The William Humphreys Art Gallery would like to invite artists residing in the Northern Cape region to submit their work for selection to participate in the fifth Northern Cape Artists Exhibition 2023.

Closing Date: 11 June 2023

There is no theme for the exhibition, as we would simply like to showcase the artistic talent of the Northern Cape and the emergent themes in the province.

1. A signed submission form
2. Labels attached to the back of each submitted work

You will be required to supply your personal details, the artwork title, medium and selling price.

Kindly note the gallery does not advise artists with the pricing of their artworks. This is entirely the responsibility of the artist to decide.

Here are some guidelines to calculate your selling price: Your costs (materials, framing, transport) + Your time (your rate per hour) = ARTIST PRICE.

Artworks will be insured by WHAG on the wall for the duration of the exhibition. Artists couriering their work, need to insure their work in transit at their own cost.

Transportation costs to and from the WHAG will be on their artists own account.

If you are submitting work via courier and require it to be couriered back to you, WHAG will repackage your work and confirm with you when you have arranged for the courier to collect at your own cost.


There are two methods for submitting work – DIGITAL & DELIVERED. Please take note of submission dates & requirements of each method: Artworks submitted digitally must be emailed to [email protected] or [email protected] no later than the 11th June 2023.

Please send all the photographs of your work in one Microsoft Word document with the title, medium and selling price typed below each photo.

Alternatively, you may send a pdf of the collection of photos. Please do not attach each photo separately in an email. Title the Word.doc with your name and surname.

Selected artworks need to be delivered to the WHAG by 15th of June 2023. Artworks submitted via hand delivery to the gallery must be made no later than the 15th June 2023.

Any submissions made after the 15th June 2023 will not be considered for selection. Address: William Humphreys Art Gallery, 1 Cullinan Crescent, Civic Centre; Kimberley, 8301
