Qube Open Art Competition returns in 2014

Qube Gallery is now calling for entries for this year’s Open Art Competition, on the theme of ‘Journey’.

The competition offers a cash First Prize, plus the ‘People’s Choice Prize’ - a solo exhibition in the gallery for the winning artist.

Last Year, over a hundred entries were submitted from as far away as Scotland and the Isle of Wight. Arts Co-ordinator Charlotte Jackson said, “The Open is the most popular event in our calendar and attracts highest levels of visitors and entrants. Last year’s standard of work was incredibly high, we were able to showcase the cream of local talent as well as display work from national artists. It’s great to run an exhibition which builds year on year.”

Artists can submit works in any media, at £10 per entry. You can request an entry form and conditions from Qube at art@qube-oca.org.uk or download from the Qube website at www.qube-oca.org.uk 

Local artist, Richard Mountford, winner of the ‘People’s Choice Prize’ at last year’s Qube Open Art Competition, is exhibiting his latest work at Qube Gallery, Oswestry. The works include a collection of portrait and figurative works in sketches and oil, many featuring Richard’s children.
