Application deadline: Monday 9 October, 5pm

Rua Red Annual open exhibition of fine and applied arts. Submissions may be in any discipline: painting, sculpture, new media, digital, printmaking, ceramics, glass, photography, installation and jewelry.

This open submission is an opportunity for graduates, emerging and established artists from Ireland (including the North) to exhibit their work in Gallery 1.

Exhibition dates: 14th December 2017 – 20th January 2018

The overall winner of the Rua Red Art Prize will be awarded a solo show in Gallery 2 at some point during the ensuing 12 month period.

Rua Red has a policy of supporting artists at all stages of their career. One of the new ways that Rua Red will implement this policy is by forming an ‘Acquisition Committee’ in September 2017. The role of the committee will be to select and purchase works from the Winter Open exhibition to form a new collection for the organisation. The works will go on show within the building on a rotational basis in the Conference and Meeting Room areas.

All works submitted for exhibition are considered by a Selection Panel.

The People’s Choice Award sponsored by The Square is determined by a public vote from visitors to the exhibition, the winner will collect €1000 towards their professional practice.
