Fantastic Beings: Body Sculpting & Assemblage Workshop





In the Fantastic Beings workshop, Spanish multidisciplinary artist Iria Do Castelo will teach you how to build a human-like sculpture using plaster bandages, homemade paper mache, clay and found objects. The workshop is designed to give an opportunity to participants to improve their creative process and explore new paths of sculpture and assemblage together with an established artist.

The workshop is suitable for anyone, artist or not, from 18 and above. All materials will be provided, but participants are also encouraged to bring along curious objects that they may wish to incorporate into their sculptures. Registration is required.

SomoS presents the Fantastic Beings workshop that is held by Iria do Castelo as a way to highlight the imaginative opportunities that are possible when sculpture, assemblage and the body come together. Inspired by Gothic art, eroticism, dreams and the dark depths of the human psyche, in her own work, do Castelo creates perverse and disruptive settings in which sculpture draws on emotion rather than formal rules. What often emerges from do Castelo’s creative process are fantastical creatures that bear resemblance to human figures. With do Castelo as a guide and teacher, participants of the Fantastic Beings workshop will be led to replicate their own bodies, transforming their moulds into new non-human, biomorphic compositions with the aid of assemblage techniques.
The possibilities are infinite.

Fantastic Beings workshop
Saturday-Sunday, December 7-8, 10am-6pm
60 euros for both days, including material (can bring additional objects)
Language : English

The workshop is open to anyone, artist or not, from 18 years and above. Please register by sending an email to

Opening January 10th, 6-10pm 

We are in our 15th year of EMA exhibits, giving young local and second career artists exposure. We offer our space as a stepping-stone to procedures in the art world and how to exhibit and present your art in a professional manner. 

These exhibits bring artists into an established gallery, most for the first time, giving them experience and making connections, networking with other artists while trying to break into the ever-difficult art world.

The exhibit showcases many different mediums, from ceramics to etchings, paintings to sculpture. It is a show that celebrates artistic diversity and encourages emerging artists to show art.

Each year we select 3-5 artists to participate in exhibition during 

Chicago Artist Month in October 2020.


Morpho Gallery is dedicated to the advancement and exposure of emerging local artists. We offer our space as non-competitive, supportive system, open to all types of artistic media and age groups.

Additionally, we offer leasing packages at affordable prices for artists, musicians and artistic groups who wish to stage their own shows or rehearse.  We are active members of the Andersonville, Bowmanville, and Ravenswood communities, and are dedicated to their enrichment via the visual arts.

Open call - January February







Snehta wants to open its doors to three (3) contemporary art practitioners to live and work in Athens for two months during the winter, spring and summer periods in 2020. 

January – February  (Deadline 10th November 2019, 12:00 pm)


An established Athens-based curator will work with each artist throughout their stay and support their research and the realisation of their exhibition.

Access the application/guidelines document form here:

Then complete the Application form and return it with all the relevant material to:


Email title: “January/February residency”


Residencies run for an agreed period of two (2) months and will begin at the start of the two month period up until the end of the second month, so artists should look for flights as close to these dates as possible. 

Residents are selected by a committee consisting of the Snehta team and an external Athens based curator who will work closely with the artists throughout their stay. The curator will be in touch with the artists prior to and during their visit to Athens, to discuss each artists practice and intentions. They will aim to knit a tight collaboration between the artists, themselves and the local scene and work towards an idea or concept which will result in an exhibition or public event. The Snehta team will coordinate and monitor this collaboration throughout. 


Who are we looking for 

We are looking for contemporary practitioners that will demonstrate a genuine interest in the social context of Athens and who can engage with it critically by challenging social norms and taboos. 

We are looking for creative practitioners who will be open to collaborate and work with other artists and curators. 

Snehta candidates should demonstrate an interest in the local community of Kypseli or more widely towards other communities based in the city. 

We are interested in artists who are driven by a research-based and explorative approach, and who will engage playfully and creatively with the city. 

We will take artists on board who believe Art is a vehicle for increasing awareness and participation in the community.


What the residency offers to the artist 

The project is research based — the work made from this research can be shown in a group exhibition in which an Athens based curator will collaborate closely with the resident artists. Snehta has had continuous public showcases in the city since 2012 with a track record of over 50 exhibitions.  

Lodgings, a bedroom per artist, a spacious shared studio and smaller private studios (for fees see section 3.) 

Access to a wood workshop, the Snehta library and a dark room.

Guidance and one-to-one support for the facilitation of each project, including the acquisition of various resources requested whether technical or otherwise. Artists must engage in a dialogue with the Snehta team to request assistance. 

Supplying each artist with a tailored toolkit, which includes sites of possible interests, maps, art supply shops and useful contacts. 

Encouraging artists to interact with other Athens-based organisations and creatives. Offering artists support to communicate and pass their message across to these organisations and individuals. 

Encouraging and supporting resident artists to have an open-studio and/or an artist led talk event at the interim stage of their residency. 

The progress and work produced by each artist will be promoted on our website and on our social media platforms (Facebook/Instagram) and through our e-newsletter. 

Snehta supports artists with letters of recommendation for funding applications. 

We aim to foster collaborations beyond the residency, and will support returning artists as much as we can via our network. 


What is expected from the Artist

There is an artist fee of 870 EUR per month plus a 100 EUR deposit. 

This can be paid via online banking, or transferwise. 

Our fee covers all of the above services mentioned in section 2. This fee also covers the artists accommodation and studio related expenses such as electricity, water and internet. 

Successful applicants must pay 300 EUR upon confirmation of their place on the programme (for more details concerning fees refer to Snehta agreement.closures 3.2-3.4). 

A two-part agreement between the prospect resident and Snehta Residency will be signed. 

The residency doesn’t provide the artists with meals or production materials. * Leftover materials found in the studio can be used. 

Artists should expect to spend around 650 EUR(!) for additional living costs per month. This figure has been roughly estimated to include expenses such as public transport, food, museum entries and other recreational activities. Although it may be higher or lower depending on the activities undertaken. 

Official Collaborators 

Snehta is supported by Outset Contemporary Art Fund (Greece).



Snehta is an associate member of Athens Culture Net   and a member of AIM network.
