One week to go until deadline for Papergirl Cardiff artwork

papergirl cardiffWith just over a week to go until the deadline for submissions to this year’s Papergirl Cardiff, the project which seeks to combine art and cycling has announced that it will display the resulting artwork at The Printhaus in Canton from May 26 to June 3.

yourCardiff reported in March that Papergirl Cardiff would be returning to the city for a second year after launching successfully in 2011.

The project merges art and cycling by appealing for artists of all ages and abilities to contribute original artwork, which are then rolled up and handed out “paperboy/papergirl style” across Cardiff by a team of volunteer cyclists.

Organisers Cycle Training Wales and social design group thinkARK said last year more than 200 artists submitted 300 pieces of art, and 30 cyclists distributed the work on an hour-long bike ride.

But before the volunteers get on their bikes again this year, all the submitted work – which must be handed in by May 11 – will be displayed for one week at The Printhaus on Llandaff Road in Canton.

The exhibition will be open on May 26 from 1pm-5pm, May 29 and 30 from 2pm-5pm and 7pm-9-m, and May 31 and June 1 from 10am-4pm.

Jon Howes, from the Papergirl Cardiff team, said: “Last year we had an amazing response from the people of Cardiff. We want to make this years event even better if we can and we are really looking forward to working with The Printhaus again.”

Any type of artwork can be can be sent in for Papergirl Cardiff before a deadline of May 11, including drawings, paintings, posters, photos, prints and textiles – but they must be flexible enough to be rolled up.

Jon added: “We want as many artworks as possible, the more the merrier. The diversity and range of pieces is what makes Papergirl so interesting and we’d love people to get involved, whatever their artistic background.”
