How thrilled are we to hear that so many of you artists have taken advantage of the recent lockdown to create an abundance of new work.   As a gallery this is music to our ears especially as we look ahead to our forthcoming Open Art Competition.

So if you are an artist who would like your artworks to be seen by hundreds of visitors or maybe the idea of winning a cash prize appeals to you then this might be of interest.  If we’ve grabbed your attention then both could be a reality because amateur and professional artists alike are invited to enter.  There is free creative rein over the work that can be submitted – any media, any subject, and either wall hung or freestanding sculptural pieces.  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 will be accepted on a disk, memory stick or as photographs – not actual artworks at the submission stage.
