Call for Work

Closing date for submission of work : 24/01/24

The theme and inspiration of this year's Open exhibition is 'Transformation', this will coincide with an exhibition of Susan Williams-Ellis' work in the drawing room at the top of the stairs. You are welcome to interpret the theme in any way that sparks your imagination.

We are looking for work from new and more experienced artists, and we are keen to showcase a wide variety of different methods and ideas. The open exhibition is one of the highlights of the year for Plas Brondanw, and we are very excited to announce that the two awards offered for the first time in 2023 will continue. The prizes are:

The people's prize - £500
The people's prize goes to the artist who wins the most votes from the public during the exhibition period

Emerging Artist Award
The winner of this award will be offered an exhibition of their work at Plas Brondanw in September in the following year, 2025 and funding of up to £500 towards preparing work for the exhibition eg. Framing, materials, delivery of the work etc.

An emerging artist is defined as an artist with no more than 5 years' experience of exhibiting work in galleries. It is open to artists of all ages.
