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 a theme of ‘The Outdoors’ with a limit of size set to be no larger than A2 (420 x 594mm). Artwork in any media could be submitted: painting, drawing, photography, textile, wood, clay and in 2D or 3D format.

Exhibited here are 94 diverse works, selected for you to enjoy. Whilst applauding all entrants who took part, this year the Selector’s Choice prize is awarded to Mark Albrow for his digital print Sunset Over West Shore. In addition, Highly Commended was awarded to photography by Pete Whitehead and Commended to art works by five other artists.

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 and post in the special post box or you can vote by scanning the QR code.


The exhibition end date could change subject to COVID 19 restrictions and developments.
