'In Flames of Fire'  

Midland Potters Selected Exhibition - Worcester Cathedral

23rd May - 14th June 2020  

In Flames of Fire' will be an MPA exhibition in the Dean’s Chapel at Worcester Cathedral

The Dean and Chapter of Worcester Cathedral have once again offered the MPA the Dean’s Chapel in the Cathedral for an exhibition of members work.  The dates of the exhibition are 23rd May - 14th June 2020.  This is a selected exhibition, please read the instructions below carefully so that you understand the process.

 Selection Process


Stage 1

Please submit photographs of up to six pieces of work to the MPA Exhibitions Coordinator  jiseys@me.com or, if you wish to submit hard copy photographs, please send them to the address given below. 

All submissions must be received by Friday 14th February 2020.

Photographs must show the work clearly against a plain neutral background and include a small everyday object (e.g. a 50p coin or a ruler) to indicate scale.  (Please note that photographs of work that do not follow these requirements will not be considered by the selection committee).  Photographs may show more than one piece as long as the scale is clearly shown and the work can be clearly seen.  The selection committee will make their choice of artists/potters from the photographs.  Please note that submitted photographs may be used in promotional material.


Stage 2

The selection committee will invite up to twelve MPA members, from those applying, to submit up to twelve pieces of work for the exhibition.  The exhibitors fee for the exhibition is £25, which must be paid to the MPA on selection.  Those artists/potters whose work is chosen will be expected to deliver work to Worcester Cathedral on Friday 22nd May 2020.  The pieces submitted do not need to be those in the photographs but they do need to be similar in style and scale.

Exhibitors will be expected to collect work not sold from Worcester Cathedral on 14th or 15th June (date to be confirmed).


Stage 3

Worcester Cathedral will take a commission of 20% for work sold during the exhibition.  Payment will be made to MPA and the MPA treasurer will make payments to individual members for work sold.

Work is insured whilst exhibited at Worcester Cathedral through the MPA members insurance scheme.

Please do not hesitate to contact the Exhibitions Coordinator jiseys@me.com if you have any questions about the process or if you would like further details about the quality of photographs to submit.

If submitting hard copy photographs please send them to: The Exhibitions Coordinator, ‘Lark Rise’, 5 Back Lane, Harborough Magna, CV23 0HT
