ABBA Online Gallery - Artwork Submission

Only current Members of ABBA can submit artwork for exhibition in our online Gallery.  

 

The ABBA Gallery is available to the public to view via the GALLERY link on the ABBA menu. All previous exhibitions are also available in our Gallery.

The ABBA Gallery provides:

  • online exhibition space

  • hanging space for any size picture

  • an artwork title, artist and description

Calls for entries are generally 3 months before the exhibition opens and will be announced on our Blog on the front page of the website and also as a direct email to our Members.
