Applications for Art in Penallt due by 25th
We are inviting applications for Art
in Penallt, now in its 5th year. With over 100
artists who have previously exhibited, we are also excited about finding new
work to show. The deadline for applications is April 25th.
This year we say goodbye to Cathy Farber who so brilliantly curated the fine
art exhibition in Capel Pentwyn, as she takes a break from the role. The
current team at Art
in Penallt looks forward to following past success with an
exhibition of two and three dimensional work in Capel Pentwyn and
demonstrations by artists and makers on the adjacent Babington Meadow. The
exhibition will open with a preview on the evening of Thursday 24th
September and will run from Friday 25th to Sunday 27th
September. Meadow events will take place over the weekend.
We take a commission of 40% and all artwork in the gallery will be for sale.
Last year 26 artists exhibited in Capel Pentwyn and together they sold work
totalling just over £5,000. We have the facilities to sell prints and cards as
well as original work.
Capel Pentwyn is an imaginatively converted church, a small but light building
with excellent wall space, transformed once a year from a holiday home into an
art gallery. Alongside it is Babington Meadow, a recreational field in the
middle of the village, which becomes a marquee area for demonstrations by
artists and makers. The two adjacent sites complement each other, the chapel
being a calm, quiet space full of interesting, original artwork whilst the
meadow is an animated centre of creativity.
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. We hope to stimulate interest and enthusiasm
amongst all age groups in the artistic process of creating a broad range of art
and craft forms; to raise money to cover costs, to invest in and to support
future ventures in the arts; to provide support to other organisations with
shared aims and to bring visitors to Penallt, benefiting the whole community. Art in Penallt works
in partnership with Babington Meadow, a registered charity, and we enjoy
collaborating with the Inn at Penallt, the Pelham Hall and Humble by Nature. We
have also developed a close association with Made in Monmouthshire and the
local secondary schools.
