Since July 2013 Oriel Nwy/Gas Gallery Aberystwyth has been an exciting and innovative venue for the display of both local and international artists of repute; within the art world it is now firmly established as THE venue for seeing quality contemporary art in Wales.
In December 2013 the Gas Gallery became home to the first Open Exhibition for Ceredigion featuring the work of over 50 artists. Run on similar lines to the internationally famous Summer Exhibition at the Royal Academy in London, entries were accepted from any artist living in Ceredigion and there was an overwhelming response from both established and unknown artists. Over 200 entries from 90 artists were received from which the selectors, Mary Lloyd Jones, Jill Piercy and Roy Marsden had the difficult task of choosing the final 66.
Visitors to the Open exhibition are also being offered the opportunity to vote for their favourite artist who will be given a full exhibition at the Gas Gallery in May.
The OPEN exhibition will be available to view until January 21st 2014.
