Glyndebourne launches art competition10:50, 22nd January 2018
Emerging artists aged 16+ are invited to submit an artwork based on the theme of ‘love and money’ for this year’s Glyndebourne Tour Art Competition.
The winning artwork will feature on the cover of 10,000 copies of the Glyndebourne Tour Programme and appear in an exhibition at Glyndebourne this autumn.
The winner will receive four free tickets to a 2018 Tour performance, and all shortlisted entrants will win two free tickets.
Artists are invited to submit paintings, drawings, original prints, mixed media, photography and digital pieces (no video or sculpture). Submissions must work both as printed artwork for the programme cover and as an exhibition piece.
Gus Christie, executive chair of Glyndebourne, said: ‘Since the competition launched, it’s been fantastic to see the number, variety and quality of entries continue to rise. I look forward to seeing this year’s submissions from an even wider range of artists, tackling such an evocative theme.’
The closing date for entries is 6 July 2018.
