Oriel Wrecsam - Oriel 1 Gallery
Wrexham Open Agored Wrecsam
16 August - 18 October 2014
As ever, the 2014 edition of Wrexham Open will feature a wide and diverse range of artworks. The vastly differing approaches to making will be displayed throughout Oriel Wrecsam’s three gallery spaces. This year, the Wrexham Open will be selected and judged by Ruthin-based artist, Jeanette Orrell.
Orrell has a long standing relationship with Oriel Wrecsam, recently exhibiting in the Strand exhibition, and we are delighted that she will be selecting the work for this year’s exhibition. She is a recent recipient of a major production grant from the Arts Council of Wales and has also shown at Mission Gallery, Oriel Mwldan, Oriel Myrddin, The Royal Academy, and tactile BOSCH. Her work is featured in the book Making and Drawing published by Bloomsbury.
