Submission guidelines for artists

Oriel Myrddin Gallery are pleased to receive information about the work of professional artists and craft makers from Wales, the UK and beyond.

As a general guide approximately 50% will have a craft and/or design bias and about 50% a fine art bias. About 50% of the exhibitions in any one year will represent Welsh artists/makers. At least one of these shows in any one year will be originated by the gallery. We usually present a mixed group selling show at Christmas.
