The Life: Full Colour Open Show is back in 2022. If you’re a Wales-based artist looking for an opportunity to showcase your work in an independent gallery committed to living a life in full colour, our show is for you.

This year we’re encouraging artists to submit art that is “yn llawn emosiwn” or full of emotion and has evoked the strongest response from you. We want to see work that has stopped you in your tracks or work that you’ve battled with, but ultimately art that people will love to live with.

Our focus is on the visual arts so we are looking for artists who specialise in painting, sculpture, photography, and mixed media. Up to three pieces of work can be submitted.

There is no entry fee and selected artists will be part of the exhibition which will open on 11th November and run until Christmas eve 2022.  Approximately 50 pieces of work will be selected and all will be available for sale.
