ArtHouse Jersey is pleased to announce an exciting opportunity for local visual artists after
having been approached by a large, international financial company based in St Helier
that wishes to commission two pieces of original work.

The financial company, which wishes to remain anonymous at this point, has asked
ArtHouse Jersey to help source the two artists to each create a piece of art with a
budget of up to £4,000 each for its St Helier offices.

The company wants one of the pieces to be figurative or portraiture, which speaks to
Jersey as a place and the people who make it what it is, championing the local

community and celebrating the Island’s diversity. The other should be a small sculpture,
which can be of any style, for its lobby space that speaks to the Island’s uniqueness.
Both pieces need to be completed by mid-May.

Tom Dingle, Director of ArtHouse Jersey, said: “We are thrilled to have been approached
with this fantastic opportunity for local artists. This is an ideal model for how local firms
can support the local arts industry whilst sourcing inspiring new work that enlivens their
professional environment. We feel that the theme of reflecting our Island community
and identity is particularly pertinent as we are together facing such unprecedented
times. We look forward to seeing the submissions.”

For more information about specifics, please email emma@arts.je

Those applying will need to submit a short statement about the work they intend to
produce along with visuals and a resume to emma@arts.je by Monday 20 April.
