Last Call for Entries

Picture this….. would you like to see your artworks on display in an art gallery and seen by hundreds of visitors or perhaps the idea of winning a cash prize appeals. Both could be a reality. If we’ve grabbed your attention then amateur and professional artists may well be interested in entering Caerphilly’s forthcoming Open Art Competition.  Submission week is rapidly looming.

There is free creative rein over the work that can be submitted - any media, any subject. (size stipulation applies). It’s not just wall hung work that can be submitted either, the organisers are keen to promote the event to artists working 3 dimensionally also so that the resulting exhibition is varied and eclectic. Sculptors, ceramicists and artists working in glass, textiles, metal, wood etc may be interested to hear this. Artists can enter up to 3 artworks: they must be original and must be for sale. Following submission, around 120 artworks will be selected by a panel of judges to form the Open Winter Exhibition for display in Y Galeri Caerffili in the new year.

Caerphilly Town Council is once again 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). Submissions are in the form of photographs or images of artworks on a disk - not actual artworks at the submission stage.

Entries will be accepted from 7 - 11 November. Full details and application forms are available from Y Galeri Caerffili, Ground Floor, The Twyn, Caerphilly, CF83 1JL or can be downloaded: www.ygalericaerffili.co.uk
