The Poly Members' Summer Exhibition 2022: Call for Entries

We are delighted to announce The Poly Members’ Summer Exhibition Call for Entries!

The Poly Members’ Summer Exhibition is a long-running, annual art show that welcomes applications for 2D and 3D works in all media and artistic disciplines. This exhibition is a celebration of the artistic talent from our community – displayed to showcase the best works from both established and new artists. It takes place in our beautiful Main Gallery upstairs at The Poly, and all members of The Poly are welcome to submit artwork.

In The Poly archive there are records of the Members' Exhibition running nearly every year from 1960 onwards, and even some mentions of exhibitions taking place pre-war. And of course, the work of the then Royal Cornwall Society in the 19th century in bringing art classes to the town was a precursor to the eventual establishment of the highly respected Falmouth School of Art, now Falmouth University.     

To apply please download an application form here. To find out more about becoming a member of The Poly please click here.

Deadline for submissions: Tuesday 5th July 2022
