Oriel Q: Open Call...

We are very excited to announce that the annual Winter Open Exhibition returns for 2017 and we would like to extend an invite to artists for submissions to the show.  All ages and abilities very welcome, the work can be any media and content, with a maximum of 3 entries per person at £5 per entry. This fee will be waived if you are a current member of the Friends of Oriel Q. Entry forms are available at Oriel Q or to download below. 

Please note that all 2D work must be mirror-plated and in a suitable frame. Clip-frames are not accepted and the work is shown at the discretion of the gallery manager/curator and please ensure work is submitted by 18th November 2017. 

Winter Exhibition RAFFLE...

As you may know, the Friends of Oriel Q have worked tirelessly each year to raise funds to help keep Oriel Q open. This year, the Friends would like to bring back the Christmas Art Raffle but we cannot do it without the extreme generosity of our supporters.

In the Gallery, we have a number of small blank canvases and we are asking artists and friends to take a canvas and create a piece of work that they are happy to donate as a raffle prize. Raffle tickets will be sold for £5 with all proceeds going towards Oriel Q. The Raffle will be drawn on the Saturday 23rd December 2017 - come join us for a mince pie!

If you would like to donate a piece of work to the Raffle, canvases are available from Oriel Q (if needed), once again any medium and content is welcome. We thank you in advance for your support.
