Qube Arts Officer-Charlotte Jackson and 2018 People's Prize Winner, Frank Triggs


Qube Gallery, Oswestry is making a final call for entries to its annual Open Art Competition.

The event is the most popular exhibition in the year, attracting around 100 entries from around the UK, as well as from local artists. All entries stand a chance of winning a £500 cash prize or the People’s Choice Prize of a month’s gallery hire in 2020.

Qube Arts Officer, Charlotte Jackson said; “This year we’ve chosen the theme ‘Inclusion’ which we hope will generate some interesting interpretations. We accept entries in any medium, from painting and print to textiles or digital media – it’s a chance for everyone to submit up to three pieces of their own original work.”

Last year’s People’s Prize winner was the local artist, Frank Triggs with his sculptural piece, Anthrocopene. He said: I was thrilled and very surprised to win. Art is about communicating with other people, and this is chance to have your work seen by others. I really would encourage people to enter the Qube Open and be a part of this friendly exhibition.”

The final day for entries is Monday 1st July 2019. An exhibition of shortlisted entries will feature at Qube Gallery from 2nd August to 30th September and the ‘best in show’ entry, selected by a panel of independent judges will be announced at a prize giving evening at the beginning of the exhibition.

Further details and entry forms are available from Qube reception or can be downloaded from the website at www.qube-oca.org.uk or by emailing art@qube-oca.org.uk.

Qube Gallery is located on Oswald Road, Oswestry and is open Monday to Friday 9am to 5pm and Saturdays 9.30am to 12.30pm. Admission is free.
