Throughout July

Visitors throughout July to the galleries at the Heritage Centre will have the opportunity to view work from the artists from all parts of Wales who have entered the annual Open Art Competition.

Under the title ‘A Moment in Time’ the competition has again attracted over one hundred submissions of which seventy seven have been chosen to be exhibited in the galleries as the finalists. The exhibition includes work in pastels, oil, acrylic, pencil, photography and mixed media.

The judging will take place during an invitation only preview event on the evening of Saturday 6 th July when the first prize of £500 and second prize of £250 will be awarded. Visitors to the Centre throughout the month will then have the opportunity to vote for their favourite work and a further prize of £100 will be awarded to this winner in early August.

Centre Manager, Lynne Brookes, commented “We were delighted with the success of the first event last year and the positive comments we received from both participating artists and the many visitors who came to the exhibition. The response and standard of the work received this year has been equally as high as the previous competition and the exhibition promises to be as successful with a wide variety of interpretation and medium. Once again we are extremely grateful for the support of Llanwrtyd-based Charcroft Electronics, Lofftwen Forest Farm and Col. Tim Van-Rees who have generously sponsored the prizes.”

The competition entries will be beautifully complemented by wood-turning from David and Andrew Leeton who return to the Centre after three very successful previous exhibitions. The exhibition will run until the end of July and the Centre is open Thursday to Sunday 10am to 4pm. Please come and visit and vote for your favourite entry.
