Open Call | Cairde Visual 2017, Sligo (Submission Fee)

The deadline for receipt of applications: 12 June

Submissions are now being accepted for this year’s Cairde Visual. In 2013, a group of established Sligo based artists came together with Cairde Sligo Arts Festival with an aim to create a significant, international open submission exhibition for the North West. Cairde Visual was born and the first annual submission took place in The Hyde Bridge Gallery in 2014.

The move of Cairde Visual to The Model for 2017 is an exciting development for all concerned. Director of Cairde Sligo Arts Festival, Tara McGowan, believes that the collaboration with The Model will further enhance the reputation of the annual exhibition.

Guidelines and submission forms are available at and also at The Model reception desk.

Please Note: Submission fees are €10 for one piece, €15 for two pieces and €20 for three.

Cairde Arts Festival takes place from 9 to 15 July.
