Dorset, UK – For more than 10 years, the Marshwood Arts Awards biannual competition has brought together some of the UK’s most talented local artists, makers and art lovers alike and given them a platform to showcase their innovative creations. Artists from a wide range of categories including Painting & Drawing, Photography & Digital Media, Sculpture and Applied Arts compete for the honour of showing their work in November’s high-profile, mixed selling exhibition held in Bridport in Dorset.
With 2019 being the first year the Marshwood Arts Awards is open to international entries, we could see some new faces as well as some spirited competition. The 2019 Marshwood Arts Awards will take place at Bridport Arts Centre from November 9th to December 7th. Of the hundreds of participants, only seventeen artists/makers will be chosen to exhibit their work. That, and the fact that new selectors are chosen for each event, could make this year’s exhibition more exciting than ever!
The 2019 Marshwood Arts Awards includes 4 categories:
• Painting & Drawing
• Photography & Digital Media
• Applied Arts (to include: Furniture & Works in Wood, Ceramics & Glass, Fashion & Textiles, Jewellery, Metalwork and Decorative Arts).
