Submission now open, deadline: Fri 26th April 2019
Now in its 9th year, The Bath Open Art Prize is one of the key open art prizes in the South West. Open to visual artists working in any medium, an eclectic and exciting mix of high level submissions are received; including video and installation as well as painting, print and 3D.
Developed as part of Fringe Arts Bath (FaB), alongside the established traditions, the prize welcomes more idiosynchratic and whimsical works that reflect FaB’s open approach.
From the many submissions received, works are selected for showing as part of a 2 week long exhibition at 44AD artspace in the centre of Bath.
Judges Chris Stephens of the Holburne Museum and Artist Sandra Porter will join the exhibition selection team, and will be awarding the prizes. Read more about them below.
For 1 artwork the fee is £20
For up to 3 artworks the fee is £30
All proceeds from the Bath Open Art Prize go towards producing the exhibition, and supporting production of Fringe Arts Bath Festival.
