NEW VENUE - Applications for Art in Penallt deadline Friday 1st March 2019

We are inviting gallery applications for Art in Penallt, now in its 9th year. We hope to hear from new potential exhibitors as well as those exhibiting with us in the past. The deadline for applications is Friday 1st March 2019.

After many happy and successful years at Capel Pentwyn, we are pleased to announce our new venue at Humble by Nature in Penallt. We are looking forward to having our event in this spacious site with excellent facilities. The fine art exhibition of two and three dimensional work will be housed in a beautiful, old barn at the heart of the property. There will be a good space to display outdoor sculpture as well. There is plenty of room nearby for a range of stalls and demonstrations for artists and makers in marquees and gazebos as we have had in the past.

The event will open with a preview on the evening of Thursday 29th August and will run from Friday 30th August to Sunday 1st September. The stalls area will be in place on the Saturday and Sunday.

Art in Penallt is a not for profit organisation whose aim is to organise an annual art festival in the village of Penallt, near Monmouth, celebrating and selling a wide variety of high-quality artwork. From the proceeds of last year's event we were able to make donations to both Babington Meadow of Penallt and Alzheimer’s Society.

    Our aim is to have a good blend of repeat artists along with a healthy selection of artists new to our venue and we will usually show an artist for no more than two consecutive years, although are flexible with this approach depending on the needs of the exhibition. Even if you have exhibited for the past two years, send in your application as it still may be chosen again this year.
