Jan 16th to Feb 6th – Part of Wexford Lions Club Annual Exhibition, Open Submission at Wexford Arts Centre, Co.Wexford, Ireland
The annual Lions Club exhibition celebrates local talent and offers a platform for artists who are at various stages of their careers as well as those with an interest in art and who wish to see their work realised within a gallery context. For this reason, it is an important show within the Wexford Arts Centre’s programme. The Wexford Lions Club Open Exhibition will be on view in the lower and upper galleries of Wexford Arts Centre from Saturday 16th January until Saturday 6th February 2015.
As a result of the tremendous success of last year’s show and the remarkably high quality work received, the theme for the 2016 Lions Club exhibition has again been left entirely open. The open brief allows participants the freedom to create exciting and original artwork, and to tell their own stories. These stories or experiences can be related through a varied range of subjects such as urban and rural narratives, abstraction and even pure imagination.
Also, this year we will again feature the Young Lions gallery, dedicated exclusively to the work of young, budding artists. Young artists are encouraged to experiment with all types of mediums and objects – paints, glitter, buttons, transfers, lego…the list is endless.
