Mostyn 2011

Deadline: 7 March 2011 (RECEIVE) or (EMAIL)

Oriel Mostyn Gallery

Llandudno, UK
21 May - 9 July 2011

The Mostyn Open exhibition, returns following the reopening of the Mostyn gallery with major new exhibition spaces. Started in 1989, the Mostyn Open grew quickly to become a major exhibition in the UK art calendar, before developing into an international event from around 2000. With Mostyn’s award-winning new building now open, the Mostyn Open is back on a biennial basis. Worldwide submission welcomed.

The Mostyn Open Award of £10,000 will be awarded on the opening night, normally to a single artist, decided by the selectors.

There are no age, media or geographical restrictions on submission. Applications may be made by either post or email.

Images submitted must be of works in the possession of the artist and available for the exhibition.

Handling Fee
The handling fee is £20 per entry, including VAT, payable when sending your application, and is non refundable.

This year’s selectors are the renowned artist Richard Wentworth, international curator Karen Mackinnon and Mostyn’s Head of Exhibition Anders Pleass. The selectors choose the works for the exhibition from the images submitted only, without seeing the artists’ names or CVs, so selection is based entirely on their judgement of the works. Emerging artists shall be considered alongside established artists.

Notification of outcome
Artists whose works are selected for inclusion will be notified on or before 31 March 2011. Unsuccessful applicants will be notified by email on or before 15 April 2011 and, if required, their submitted material returned by 31 May 2011.
