    Open Art Results


    130 artworks by 76 artists were selected to form this exhibition. 

    Judging Panel:

    David Chamberlain - Arts Development Officer Caerphilly CBC

    Veronica Gibson - Artist

    Ian Fisher - Artist and winner of 2018 Open Art competition.

    Judges' Overview:

    The panel felt the overall standard of work was extremely high, which made judging both difficult and enjoyable. They said that it was a privilege to judge such a high quality range of work, and were impressed by the broad range of ideas, exploration of themes and the quality of work, which presented each genre of 2D and 3D work.

    The winning artwork stood out for being a good piece of social commentary. The judges said it was a sensitive and well executed piece with depth and feeling, and is a worthy winner up against a really high bar. The message is conveyed concisely and expertly. This painting proves that a piece of work does not have to be large to have impact, or even be monumental.

    Haf Weighton's work showed a seemingly spontaneous approach and an excellent technical ability.  The skill and creative use of media, captured a unique record of time and place with the architectural and cultural significance of a Cardiff landmark. 

    The judges concluded by saying this exhibition is now a must see fixture on the exhibition calendar for anyone interested in the visual arts as it continues to support and showcase some of the best new and existing artists in Wales.
