3 Things You Should Know About the North Wales Open

Egret Ready to StrikeI am super pleased to have had my ‘Egret Ready to Strike’ piece accepted into the North Wales Open art exhibition 2017.

Places

The exhibition traditionally has 146 – 150 places and takes up three gallery ‘spaces’. Jugdges have the difficult job of selecting from over 200 pieces that are submitted by a very productive regional art community.

History

The competition has been running from, at least, 1986 when Ivor Williams, sculptor had a piece in the competition. Then it was held at Oriel Mostyn. The competition has been held at Theatre Clwyd since, at least 1997. At this time the solicitors Aaron & Partners were sponsoring the prizes and they did so for at least the next 6 years.

Prizes

1st prize – £1000
2nd prize – £500
3rd prie – £250

I enjoyed looking at a great variety of subjects depicted using a wide range of media on the evening of the private view, June 24th 2017.
