Open Call to Regional Artists!

Come and join a community of established and emerging artists, making new connections and gaining exposure, with your work being seen by thousands of people.

The theme this year is ‘Movement’, in honour of the 350th anniversary of the Salopian choreographer and writer John Weaver, who significantly influenced the development of Ballet and Pantomime to what it is today.

However, we are not just looking for figurative dance pieces; we want to present all interpretations of movement - think Van Gogh’s dancing lines of paint ,Turner’s turbulent seascapes and Boccioni’s abstracted bodies in motion. We want to see it all!

Successful candidates will be exhibited at Shrewsbury Museum and Art Gallery along with Theatre Seven and The Parade throughout July and August 2023.

The Special Exhibition at Shrewsbury Museum and Art Gallery in 2022 included work by internationally renowned artists such as Andrew Logan, Banksy, Tracey Emin, Halima Cassell MBE, Jeff Koons, Doodle Boy and more!

Being such a success and drawing in the crowds we will again be holding a Special Exhibition at Shrewsbury Museum to inspire along with
an accessible trail of 3 bronze sculptures supported by 200 regional and local artists in 16 exhibitions,
8 workshops and 5 events across town.

With the Art Trail growing yearly we wanted to expand its reach and will therefore consider submissions from artists across the region, to include Shropshire's neighbouring counties.

Artists of all ages using any medium are welcome.

This year, in line with established practice of other arts organisations and to sustain the trail we are introducing a fee for submissions:
£5 for 1
£8 for 2
£10 for 3
The deadline for submissions is 1st June 2023

To request an application form or if you have any queries please email alternatively an application form will be available soon on our website.
