Winter open and Trasna X Open Call

The Courthouse Gallery & Studios is pleased to announce our open call for submissions to both the Winter Open Exhibition (December 10th  2021 – Jan 15th 2022), which has temporarily taken the place of our annual Summer Open Exhibition, and for Trasna X.

These exhibitions have been devised to end the year on a positive celebratory note while also supporting The Courthouse Gallery to fundraise in the face of a difficult few years and generate an opportunity for artists to sell work. There is no theme and it is open to all. All successful submissions will be displayed publicly in the gallery and will be placed on our webstore.

 

Deadline for submissions is the 28th of November 2021.

 

Please note: There is a submission fee for both exhibitions, €10 for the Winter Open and €5 for Trasna X. There is no artist fee. Submissions fee’s are non-refundable.

 

The Winter Open Exhibition is a celebration of visual art in all its forms, open to artists of all levels and styles and will be staged in the Main Gallery space of the Courthouse Gallery, artworks are priced at the artist’s discretion. A 25% commission is charged on sales.

 

Trasna X is a postcard format exhibition, A5 artwork exhibition which will be exhibited in the Red Couch Gallery on the second floor. Unlike the Winter Open all works are sold anonymously and for €50. The artist will receive all proceeds of this sale. Please pre-pay the submission fee at Thecourthousegallery.com and post the work with a return envelope. All work must be unframed unless particularly desired, all work must be delivered no later than the 28th November 2021. Trasna receives such a huge volume of work each year it will not be possible to post all works on the webstore at this time.
