The Winter Open Exhibition 2018 is in full swing with over 100 artworks submitted from Ireland, England and throughout Wales. It is a truly diverse exhibition with most media being employed to capture land and seascapes, still life studies, abstract and figurative work. Below is a preview of how this fabulous exhibition is looking.

Winter Exhibition RAFFLE...

The Friends of Oriel Q Committee are bringing back the Christmas Art Raffle for another year following the great success in 2017 but we cannot do it without the 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 £2 a tickets (Books for £10) with all proceeds going towards Oriel Q. The Raffle will be drawn on the Saturday 22nd December 2017 and we will also be throwing a bit of an Xmas Do - 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.
