Open Art Exhibition

Our highly anticipated ArtWaves Open Exhibition is now live and open for entries. All visual art forms and medium are accepted. Let your creativity take flight. This year there is no theme – we want to see your art uncaged and free.

There are cash prizes totalling £500 available. Our panel of judges will be looking at artistic quality and appeal. Members of the public will be able to vote for their favourite pieces online and in person once the exhibition starts.

The exhibition will run from Tuesday 1 November to Sunday 6 November in The Spa Gallery. Closing Date for entries is Friday 30 September, 2022 - Good luck!
