Wexford Lions Club Art Exhibition

Wexford Lions Club in partnership with Wexford Arts Centre are delighted to announce details for its annual exhibition, Open Show and invite submissions from local artists.
In contrast with recent years, the theme is left entirely open with the intention that this will result in a broader, more personal response from participants. So whether your muse is the land or the sea, figure or fauna, rural beauty, urban narratives, pure imagination, total abstraction or anything in between, the opportunity is there for artists young and old to rise to the challenge and create totally unique works. We encourage children to get involved this year as there will be wall for ‘Young Lions’ in the final exhibition, dedicated specifically to the work of budding artists. We also wish to promote and display the talents of local sculptors and artists working in 3Dimensional forms and request that these too participate so that we may create an exhibition which truly encompasses the diverse nature of art and the array of talent to be found in Wexford and the surrounding areas.
Interested persons are asked to complete an application form and collect a cartridge/watercolour paper or canvas from Wexford Arts Centre. If artists are interested in submitting sculpture they must also fill out an application form and should note that work must be no larger than 35(w) x 35(l) x 50(h) cm. Applications are limited to one per person, and as inclusion in the exhibition is limited, applications will be processed on a first come, first served basis.
Application forms are available from Wednesday 15tth December at Wexford Arts Centre Box Office and deadline for submission of completed work to Wexford Arts Centre is Tuesday 31st January 2012. (Please note, Box Office will open from 10am to 5.30pm, Tuesday 20th – Friday 23rdDecember and from 10am to 2pm on Christmas Eve.)
Exhibition entry fee is €10.00 per applicant and all artworks must be submitted unframed on or before this date and on the paper/canvas provided by WAC.
The annual Lions Club exhibition celebrates local talent and offers a creative opportunity for artists who are at different stages of their careers to produce work and see it realised within a gallery context. For this reason, is an important show within the Wexford Arts Centre’s programme. The Wexford Lions Club; Open Show will be on view in the lower and upper galleries of Wexford Arts Centre from Tues 14th February until Saturday 3rd March with an official opening of the exhibition scheduled for Thursday 16th February at 8pm.
