The exhibition will focus on the connections that individuals build through engaging in art. The subject matter for artworks will be open- which simply means  you can choose any subject you like as long as it's original. Original means  you aren't directly copying a tutors painting, another artist's work or a photo which you do not have permission to use. A painting can be done in a class or a workshop as long as the tutor has not worked on your painting at any point.



The exhibition will be open from  Thursday 5th to Tuesday 10th October



As part of engaging and building connections with the viewers all prizes will be awarded by People's Choice

Viewer Engagement activities: 

We want to give the public lots of different opportunities to make connections with you as the artists and some of the extras at the exhibition will be:

  • a video  playing on a screen showing snippets from different classes

  • a scannable QR code next to some paintings which is linked to a short video clip related to that painting- it could be you talking about what inspired you to paint the subject, it might be a timelapse of the painting being painted , it could be some photos of the reference material and preliminary sketches for the painting, maybe a short written statement about what the artists enjoys about using that medium or a flip through your sketchbook.

More information, including Conditions of Entry and Entry Forms, available closer to the date.
