Artists Application

Artists are welcome to send details of their work to Aberystwyth Arts Centre, to keep us informed of their current shows or projects; or to request that work be considered for exhibition.

The Arts Centre has the following temporary exhibition Galleries:

Gallery 1 is fully invigilated, and is a space of approximately 250 square metres. The programme is primarily concentrated on contemporary works.

Gallery 2 is not invigilated full time but is checked by staff throughout the day.  The size is c. 125 square metres.

The Eye is programmed with artists’ video. The Eye has a 52" sized screen, and is sited in the main Arts Centre foyer.

The Café exhibits works from Arts Centre classes or works extending an exhibition in Galleries 1 or 2.

For specific projects works can also be sited elsewhere by agreement. Cross disciplinary work is encouraged.
