Highlanes Gallery Open Submission 2020
Highlanes Gallery Open Submission 2020Highlanes Gallery is delighted to announce its inaugural Open Submission exhibition and competition. Its objective is to support and highlight new work by artists living in Ireland, to encourage interest and engagement with contemporary art, and to raise the profile of ambitious visual art in society.

This new bi-annual Open Submission is open to artists living on the island of Ireland. This Open Submission has been developed responding to the social constraints of the current global situation, and acknowledging that many visual artists continue to create and work, though now, many not in their studios, but in smaller spaces, and domestic environments.

The Open Submission has closed and the shortlisted artists have been contacted and they along with the Janet Mullarney Prize Winner and the 4 runner up recipients all be announced on Friday 5th June.
