'Signal Arts Centre Signal Open 2019'


Terms of Entry

Signal Arts Centre is delighted to invite submissions from artists for its Annual ‘Signal Open’ Exhibition which will be held in Signal’s Gallery from 6th - 18th August 2019.
The show will have a formal opening on Friday 9th August from 7-9pm at which Signal will present the Signal Prize of €1000 to the artist whose piece is selected as ‘Best In Show’.
The exhibition is open to artists working in 2D only (painting, drawing, photography, printmaking, etc.) and all pieces must not exceed 92cm X 92 cm (framed).



The size limitation is primarily to facilitate hanging the show and to allow us to exhibit as representative a selection as possible from the submissions received.

Artists may submit a maximum of three works at a cost of €10 each.
Works must be submitted in digital format only. Each image should be clearly labelled with your name and title of picture (images should be suitable for print reproduction – 300dpi – jpeg format, not exceeding 5mb in size).
All works submitted must be for sale. The price for each work on the Entry Form should include 25% commission for Signal Arts Centre.
Artists should supply an Artist Statement/CV not exceeding one A4 page.

All works on exhibit will be covered by public liability insurance. However, insurance of works against loss or damage is the artist’s responsibility.
