Newent Art Competition 2017
We are inviting participants to create artworks (Painting, sculpture, photography or poetry) inspired by the movements of the ‘Newent Symphony’, an original composition by Bill Anderton of the Newent Orchestra.
The symphony, to be performed by the orchestra on 25th March 2017 at Newent Community School, has 5 movements;
‘Dawn Over the Lake’ – ‘Daffodils’ – ‘Market Square’ – ‘The Onion Fayre’ – ‘May Hill’
The competition is open to both amateur and professionals alike and works will be judged on both their relevance to the theme and on artistic merit by a panel of judges.
The overall winner will receive a substantial CASH PRIZE, and all shortlisted works will be exhibited at the Gallery@the Shambles.
Newent Art Competition 2017 is open for entries from 1st February 2017.
Details of how to enter will follow. In the mean time… Get creating!
