Wrexham: new art exhibition at Ty Pawb
A “stunning” new art exhibit has opened at Ty Pawb.
The Tŷ Pawb Open takes place every two years at Wrexham’s award-winning markets, arts and community.
This year’s edition of the exhibition features works by more than 150 artists from across the country, working in a range of mediums, including painting, printmaking and sculpture.
This follows a fantastic response to the open call, held earlier this year. Over 220 artists submitted over 600 artworks for consideration.
All the artists presented as well as their friends and families were invited to a special evening to officially open the exhibition.
The Judges Prize winner was announced at the event, selected by special guest judge, artist Harold Offeh.
The winning entry was Narnia, an inkjet print by Welsh artist Squirrel Natkin.
Visitors to the exhibition can vote for their favorite work. The winner of the “People’s Choice” will be announced at the closing of the exhibition in January.
All works are for sale, ideal for doing some early Christmas shopping.
Wrexham Councilor Hugh Jones said: “The open show is one of the most popular shows on Tŷ Pawb’s calendar. The wide range of colors, variety and creativity on display make it an accessible and enjoyable exhibit for all ages.
“The gallery is truly magnificent and our thanks must go to all the artists who contributed to the works, and to the extremely talented team who helped organize and mount the exhibition. I encourage everyone who visits Tŷ Pawb during the busy fall and winter time to step into the gallery and make the most of this wonderful space.
