The Sheffield culture guide written by in-the-know locals

Lockdown is a call-out and online exhibition set up by arts platform Fronteer.

Fronteer are asking artists to send them photographs of work made during self isolation, which will be uploaded to their Instagram gallery at @fronteerlockdown – building an online documentation of the time artists spent in isolation.

"During this time of uncertainty we have seen many art venues and opportunities having to suspend and cancel. Fronteer want to offer artists an outlet for their creativity and hopefully focus minds on more positive things."
Fronteer's founders, the Sheffield-based artists Sharon Mossbeck and Michael Borkowsky

Submit your artwork:
Email your submissions to fronteerart@gmail.com, along with your name, the title of the work, medium, size, and your Instagram handle (if you have one). Photos of work should be square or be able to be cropped to a square.

Fronteer organisers will not include work they deem to be offensive/inflammatory/inappropriate, and they request no more than one submission per artist per week.

Closing date for entries: Sunday 14th June.

The Graves feels like a bit of a secret, tucked away above the Central Library. But with pieces by Bridget Riley, Marc Quinn, J.M.W. Turner, Grayson Perry and Sam Taylor-Wood, and brilliant temporary exhibitions, it's only right we let you in on it.
