Win £1,500 award for Torch Theatre's New Annual Open Art Competition

An award of £1,500 is being offered to the winner of a new Annual Open Art Competition and Exhibition being launched at the Joanna Field Gallery in the Torch Theatre, Milford Haven, next spring.

With the aim of being cutting edge, visually stimulating and thought-provoking, local, national and international artists practicing in contemporary and conceptual art, inclusive of painting, installation, film, photography, print, sculpture and ceramics are invited to submit entries for consideration before the deadline of 8 January.

Work should be recent, original and existing - proposals will only be accepted if fully developed and artists must be prepared to fund any new work themselves. Entry is free and there are no geographical restrictions, but artists must be over the age of 21. Size limitations are according to available gallery space. Work will be selected from a submission of a maximum 4 images, supplied in digital format, slides or DVD.

The panel of selectors for Pembrokeshire Open 2010 includes an experienced curator, Tracey Warr, together with artists David Fitzjohn and Alison Hayes. Artists whose work is selected for exhibition will be notified by the end of January 2010.

All works selected (up to 40 artists) will be included in an exhibition at the Joanna Field Gallery at Milford Haven's Torch Theatre from 20 February to 28 March 2010 with the award being announced at a Private View on Friday 19 February.

If you are an artist and would like the opportunity for your work to be exhibited, visit for more information and an application form. The Torch Theatre is funded by the Arts Council of Wales.
