Emerging and established artists are invited to submit works in any medium for Quay Arts’ biennial Open Exhibition 2021, titled ‘Freedom’.
Every 2 years, Quay Arts invites artists from across the UK to submit works to be a part of a themed Open Exhibition. It is through the Open Exhibitions that Quay Arts are able to discover new talent and provide a platform for visual artists that wish to share their work with the world.
With the title and theme ‘Freedom’, the Newport gallery is looking for works exploring ideas centred around current freedoms or lack of. Works exploring this theme can be produced in any medium but must be within 2m x 2m dimensions, max no of works 3.

The solo exhibition will include curatorial input, mentoring, marketing and installation support. A further selection of up to 7 artists will be selected for a specially curated group exhibition in the West Gallery for early 2022.
