Call for Artists
If you are an artist and the idea of winning a cash prize appeals to you or you would like to see your artworks on display in an art gallery and seen by hundreds of visitors then this might be of interest. If we’ve grabbed your attention then both could be a reality because amateur and professional artists alike are invited to enter Caerphilly’s forthcoming Open Art Competition.
There is free creative rein over work that can be submitted – any media, any subject, and either wall hung or freestanding pieces. Following submission, around 120 artworks will be selected by a panel of judges to form the vibrant Open Art Winter Exhibition for display in Y Galeri Caerffili throughout January 2020.
Caerphilly Town Council is sponsoring the event. The winning artist will stand to win a cash prize of £750, with £250 going to the runner up and £50 for the popular Visitors Choice Award. Entry fee is £10 per artwork (non-refundable). Size stipulation applies. Submissions will be accepted on a disk, memory stick or as photographs – not actual artworks at the submission stage.
Entries will be accepted between 5 -9 November. Full details and application forms are available from Y Galeri Caerffili, Ground Floor of the Visitor Centre, Caerphilly, CF83 1JL or can be downloaded : www.ygalericaerffili.co.uk
