Cairde Visual Open Submission Exhibition

Cairde Visual Open Submission Exhibition has been a very welcome feature in the annual arts festival programme.

Now in its 7th edition, this dynamic and colourful show is expected to feature work from both Irish and international artists across a broad range of media including paintings and drawings, sculpture, film, photography and installation. Artists are invited to submit artworks for consideration before Friday May 27th.

Each artist who exhibits is automatically in the running to win one of the awards on offer: The Hamilton Gallery Award, The Model Residency Award, and The Cosgrove’s Delicatessen Award.

The Hamilton Gallery, a pioneering contemporary art gallery in the heart of Sligo, offers the winner a solo exhibition in the gallery's calendar of exhibitions in 2023. The Model Residency Award is a two week residency at The Model. The Cosgrove’s Delicatessen Award, an exciting award which has been very generously sponsored by Cosgrove's Delicatessen offers a €1000 cash prize to the selected artist.
