Draíocht is delighted to announce its inaugural 21st Birthday Open Submission Exhibition and Competition for 2022.
Its objective is to support and highlight new work by graduate visual artists of the last three years (2019, 2020, 2021) from recognised third level art colleges across the island of Ireland or Irish graduates in recognised third level art colleges abroad; to provide a platform for new work much of which may not have been exhibited; to encourage interest and engagement with contemporary art; and to raise the profile of ambitious visual art in society.
This Open Submission has been developed in response to the social constraints of the current global situation.
There will be monetary prizes: One top prize at €3,000 and others at €500 each.
The Open Submission will be by way of a 2-stage process, with works being chosen by the judging panel and exhibited in Draíocht in Spring of 2022.
The Call out for submissions will open in November and application details will be available then on www.draiocht.ie
