AboutArtSway is proud to announce the return of their highly-popular annual Open exhibition. Each year the ArtSway Open brings together local, national and international artists, displaying the highest quality contemporary visual art in a wide range of media and covering a broad variety of themes. Applications are accepted from artists of all levels regardless as to the current standing of their career.
The Open aims to reflect current pluralistic practices and ideas present in the art world today. By discarding a standard set brief, ArtSway places no restrictions on content or media choice of submitted material and artists are encouraged to enter examples that best reflects their current practice and artistic direction. Each year ArtSway receives over 300 entries for the Open. The winner of the Open receives the award of a solo exhibition at ArtSway, with full curatorial, mentoring and marketing support up to, during, and after their exhibition.
The ArtSway Open08 is sponsored by Lashmars Accountants of Lymington (www.lashmars.co.uk) with additional support from Arts & Business.
