The annual Open Art exhibition is open to artists and students of 16 and over who live or work in Wales. This year applications were invited on an Open theme with a limit of size set to be no larger than A1 (594 x 841mm). Artwork in any media could be submitted: painting, drawing, photography, film, textile, wood, clay and in 2D or 3D format.

Exhibited here are a range of diverse works, selected for you to enjoy. There are 86 works by 67 artists.  This year’s Guest Judge was Jwls Williams.  Whilst applauding all entrants who took part, this year the Selector’s Choice prize is awarded to Morgan Griffith for his work ‘A Descent into the – Maelstrom’.  In addition, Commended was awarded to Chris Higson for his acrylic painting, ceramic work by Emily Hughes and an oil painting by Maisy Lovatt, an art student at Coleg Menai.

You can vote for your favourite artwork that could then become eligible for the People’s Choice prize, donated by Cyfeillion Storiel and awarded to the work receiving the most votes. Please select your favourite by voting once for that artwork and post in the special post box before Saturday 18th of May.
