Boyle Open Art Exhibition 2019

Hello Artist,

This is a reminder to all artists, local, new and those from further afield, that it is time to think of your entry / entries to Boyle Arts Festival Open Art Exhibition. We also welcome younger artists, as there is a special ‘Most Promising Artist under 25yrs’ prize.

I am delighted that this year’s overall winner will be presented with the Sue Hill Perpetual Trophy and as a demonstration of Boyle Arts Festival’s commitment to fostering the arts, we are delighted to announce that the winning exhibitor will be invited to exhibit in the main exhibition in King House next year.

Handing-in of entries in Church of Ireland, Parochial School, Military Road, Boyle (same road as Garda Station / opposite Family Life Centre). I look forward to seeing you and your new work(s) on handing in day on: –

Fri July 5th     4pm to 6pm

Sat July 6th     4pm to 6pm

  • Entries will be accepted in any medium to a maximum of 3 per person
  • If you have any queries about the exhibition, please ring me at 071 96 63033 between 9am and 5pm. 

We were delighted that last year’s exhibition was well supported again, as always. We anticipate another excellent show for 2019, exhibits for which will be selected by an anonymous panel.

The exhibition runs this year from Friday 19th July until Saturday 27th July.

Best Regards
