Wales Contemporary/Cymru Gyfoes is an international open competition for 2D and 3D artwork in any medium excluding film and photography, awarding six prizes to a total of £12,000.
Developed by the Waterfront Gallery in association with the Welsh Government, Wales Contemporary seeks to celebrate all aspects of the country by inviting artists to submit work that is inspired by its ancient history, its art history, its heritage, its landscape (rural, urban or political) and its contemporary culture.
Following a call for entries which saw the submission of over 1,000 artworks from across the globe, the UK and the Republic of Ireland, Denmark, France, Germany, Spain, Netherlands, Czech Republic, Romania, Cyprus, Japan, China, Russia, Hungary, Moldova, Chile, Hong Kong, Singapore, Australia, the USA and Canada were all represented. 150 works have been selected to be displayed for the second Wales Contemporary exhibition which will be taking place at the Waterfront Gallery in Milford Haven, Pembrokeshire from Friday 13th November to Wednesday 30th December 2020, followed by an exhibition at the OXO Gallery in London in the Spring of 2021.
Take a look at the entry finalists that were judged by artist Basil Beattie RA, painter and emeritus professor Gerda Roper and sculptor Sebastian Boyesen.
