Quay Arts’ OPEN 2023

Sat 22 July Sat 7 October

Sat 22nd July – Sun 8th October 2023

QUAY ARTS OPEN 2023: The Art of Sculpture (AOS) 

In the age of the super-flat, Quay Arts present an exhibition celebrating the physicality of art. 

Bringing together the work of twenty five artists (young, emerging and established) working within or across the broad practice of Sculpture, AOS showcases concepts and techniques through materials and themes and the curated interplay of works within the (gallery) setting. 

Displayed and linking across Quay Arts, AOS presents carved, printed, painted, moulded, naturally sourced, cast, constructed and sewn works designed for real world interaction.  

One artist will be selected by a judging panel from the 2023 OPEN and be awarded first prize: a solo exhibition at Quay Arts in the West Gallery in 2024 / 25. A second artist will also be selected for a solo exhibition at Quay Arts in the Clayden Gallery in 2024. 

Quay Arts Biennial occurs every two years with the next OPEN programmed for 2025.
