Entries need for Weston Park fine art open competition

The Weston Park Art Gallery is giving young artists the chance to showcase their works and enter them into a prestigious competition that is to form the basis of a forthcoming exhibition in the estate’s art gallery.

Every month there is an exhibition at Weston Park by an acclaimed artist, from both the UK and overseas, except for August when the space is dedicated to their Fine Art Open Competition.

This gives new, young talent to opportunity of gaining priceless public exposure. This exhibition will be made up of those who have made the shortlist for the prize of £2000.

Gareth Williams, Curator to the Weston Park Foundation, comments: “Weston Park houses an art collection of international importance including works from Constable, Stubbs and Van Dyck, and as an educational charity we believe that an important part of our role is about fostering and nurturing new talent. One of the most valuable parts of this project is that it gives artists the chance to see their work hang in a professional gallery.”

Weston Park is located just off the A5 on the Shropshire / Staffordshire boarder.  This will be the second Fine Art Open Competition that it has organised, with last year’s event attracting more than 150 entries and more than 2,000 visitors.

Entries cost £15.00 per piece and the deadline is Friday June 29th 2012.  For further details please visit www.weston-park.com/granaryopen to download an entry form.
