A south Powys gallery is calling for artists to exhibit their work, the county council has said.

In preparation for a temporary exhibition later this year, y Gaer, Museum, Art Gallery and Library in Brecon is looking for artists to submit pieces inspired by, the natural environment and wildlife of Brecknockshire, to exhibit alongside works from its own collection.

Before submitting, please ensure the work fits the following guidelines:

  • Artworks can be in any medium.
  • Hanging works should be no larger than 44 x 54cm and must be framed and mirror plated. 
  • 3D works should be no larger than 40cm3.
  • Only one submission per artist will be accepted for consideration.

Cllr David Selby, Cabinet Member for a More Prosperous Powys, said: "It's fantastic to see events such as this taking place within y Gaer, and I really encourage any artist, or aspiring artist, to submit their work for this exhibition.

"This exhibition will give an opportunity for all artists to showcase themselves and present their work at this popular venue.

"I look forward to seeing the range of art on show when this exhibition opens later this year, but it's also a fantastic opportunity for residents and visitors alike and promotes the vast amount of talent we have here in Powys."

All submitted artworks will go through a selection process to ensure that they are suitable for the exhibition, therefore it is not guaranteed that every piece will be chosen.

Chosen artworks will be exhibited from mid-March - early September 2024, therefore artists must be happy for their work to be on loan and out on display for the duration. Submissions will close on 6th February 2024 and successful applicants will be notified on 8th February 2024.

Within the exhibition, each piece will be clearly labelled with the artist, title, and social media handle, where applicable.

For more information and to submit work, please contact marked for the attention of the Assistant Curator.
