The Winter Open is Rua Red’s annual open exhibition of fine and applied arts. Submissions may be in any discipline: painting, sculpture, new media, digital, printmaking, ceramics, glass, photography, installation and jewellery.
This open submission is an opportunity for graduates, emerging and established artists in Ireland (including the North of Ireland) to exhibit their work in Gallery 1.
The overall winner of the Rua Red Art Prize will be awarded a solo show in Gallery 2 at some point during the ensuing 12-month period.
Rua Red has a policy of supporting artists at all stages of their career. One of the new ways that Rua Red will implement this policy will be to select and purchase works from the Winter Open and Café Wall exhibition to form a collection for the organisation. The works will go on show within the building on a rotational basis in the Conference and Meeting Room areas.
All works submitted for exhibition are considered by a Selection Panel.
Theme: Hindsight is 2020
Racism, injustice, murder, environmental destruction and devastation, corrupt leaders, an economic crash and an uncontrollable virulent global pandemic that has changed our world completely.
‘Hindsight is 20/20’ is used to describe how we can gain clearer understanding of a situation as we look back on it from a vantage point.
Is 2020 the year of hindsight?
