2019 Artist Open Call

*** Submissions Now Closed *** Artist Open Call – Cruthu Arts Festival 2019

Cruthú Arts Festival is excited to be entering its sixth year in 2019 and as always, we strive to bring a diverse collection of visual art to Longford as part of our festival.

We are now releasing an open call for artists to participate in the main event and purpose of our programme. We are looking to incorporate a broad range of visual art forms, including painting, drawing, printmaking, sculpture, photography, illustration, textile, mixed media and film.

Exhibiting artists will be able to take advantage of pop up gallery spaces located in vacant retail units situated throughout the town. These spaces can be used to display existing works, house specially designed installations or they can be transformed into unique conceptual spaces. We are giving you a blank canvas – bring it to life.

Submission process & criteria:

  • Artists who wish to apply for an exhibition space should send an email containing artist details, good quality images of the work to be displayed / proposals for installations and a link to artists portfolio.
  • Submissions to cruthuartsfestival@gmail.com with subject ‘Artist Open Call’
  • While we endeavour to facilitate as many artists as possible, the spaces are limited.
  • Submissions will be evaluated by Cruthú Arts Festival Committee and the final selection will be contacted by email.
  • Closing date for submissions is 15th June 2019.


We look forward to seeing your work, thank you in advance for your submissions and we hope you enjoy our 2019 festival.
