Artists are invited to submit their work in any medium for selection. The 2019 exhibition will be presented entirely in VISUAL’s Main Gallery, Carlow from 4 June – August 31. All artists will receive an artist’s fee.
This year’s Art Works Open Submission invites artists to submit work that responds to the song lyric:
We are gathered here today
To get through this thing called life
Let’s go crazy, Prince. 1984
The final selection of artist’s works will be presented in the Main Gallery at VISUAL.
There will be two awards, sponsored by Hotron for outstanding work presented:
The ART WORKS Award of €3000, will be presented for the most outstanding work in any medium.
The Éigse Prize of €1000 will be presented for work by a recent graduate (2017/2018/2019) selected for the most outstanding work in any medium.
SELECTORS: Festival Director Jo Mangan, and Emma-Lucy O’Brien Curator, VISUAL with a further selector to be announced in January 2019.
Please Note: There is a submission fee of €10 per piece.
