Fourth Annual “SIGNAL OPEN” Exhibition
SUBMISSION DATE: 22ND JULY 2016
€1,000 SIGNAL PRIZE TO “BEST IN SHOW”
Over the last 250 years ‘Open Submission’ exhibitions have become established as an essential element of Arts infrastructure. They act as one of the most accessible routes for artists to have their work seen by the public and are almost invariably amongst the stepping stones in an artist’s career.
When Joshua Reynolds established the Royal Academy (RA) in the 18th century, one of his goals was the establishment of an annual exhibition which would be “open” to all artists for submission. The first such exhibition took place in 1769 to great acclaim and has been run annually ever since.
In Ireland the Royal Hibernian Academy (RHA) did likewise and over the years others have developed such as E.V.A., Claremorris, Oireachtas, Living Art, Iontas etc. These exhibitions provide an opportunity for artists to come together as a community to show and sell their work and provide the public with an eclectic insight into what’s happening in the arts both locally and nationally.
The Signal Open Exhibition is now in its 4th year and has become an annual event in artists’ calendars. We have been delighted by the response and the quality of work submitted each year and we are very grateful to all of the artists for their support. We look forward to this years’ exhibition which runs from 2nd August –14th August 2016.
