Over the last 250 years ‘Open Submission’ exhibitions have become established as an essential element of Arts infrastructure. They act as one of the most accessible routes for artists to have their work seen by the public and are almost invariably amongst the stepping stones in an artist’s career. These exhibitions provide an opportunity for artists to come together as a community to show and sell their work and provide the public with an eclectic insight into what’s happening in the arts both locally and nationally.
A founding tenet of Signal Arts Centre is the belief that there is a huge amount of talent that goes unrecognised and that an opportunity should be there for all artists to exhibit their work. The Signal Open is just such an opportunity.
The Signal Open Exhibition is now in its 8th year and has become an annual event in artists’ calendars. We have been delighted by the response and the quality of work submitted each year and we are very grateful to all of the artists for their support.
The 8th Annual Signal Open Exhibition takes place at the Signal Arts Centre from Tuesday 4th – Sunday 16th August 2020. The ‘Best in Show’ winner will be awarded €1,000
