30th April - 15th June John Singer Sargent Open Art Competition 2014

The 2014 Broadway Arts Festival will run from 30th May – 15th June. Whilst the legacy of John Singer Sargent and the Broadway Colony will always provide our motivation, the theme of the 2014 festival will be ‘Changing Times’ and looks back 100 years to the era preceding the Great War.

There is no specific subject for the competition, but work reflecting the theme of the Festival ‘Changing Times’ would be appreciated.

The panel of judges will be chaired by Mark Ward, former Head of Art at Cheltenham College, choosing a large selection of work to be hung at Little Buckland Gallery during the Broadway Arts Festival. The main prize will be the John Singer Sargent Prize of £1000 (kindly sponsored by John Noott Galleries), an additional prize of £500 for work by a local artist, within a 20 mile radius of Broadway and another of £250 of framing by Richard Christie Framemaker for the most popular piece judged by visitors.

The preliminary judging will be done from online entries to save transportation and storage issues. The registration form is downloadable from www.broadwayartsfestival.com. For queries please ring Arabella Kiszely on 01386 853739 or email ajkiszely@aol.com.
