ANGUSalive Meffan Winter Show

Thank you to everyone who entered the ANGUSalive Meffan Winter Show

We look forward to welcoming artists from all over Scotland who submitted their work for the ANGUSalive Meffan Winter Show.

As always we were very impressed with the variety of artwork and we look forward to displaying a vibrant and exciting show. We'd also like to extend our thanks to artists for their patience as we made some new changes to the ANGUSalive Meffan Winter Show this year.

All artwork will be eligible for the ANGUSalive Purchase Prize of £1,500 and the Colin Dakers Memorial Purchase Prize of £1,000. We also have the People's Choice Award, a prize of £200 which is exclusively for amateur category artwork and chosen by public vote.

The ANGUSalive Meffan Winter Show 2018 takes place 17 November - 29 December 2018.

Meffan Winter Exhibition

Our annual open Meffan Winter Exhibition is a key event in the Scottish Arts Calendar and provides an opportunity for both amateur and professional artists based in Scotland to showcase their work.

There is a chance for all artists to have their work purchased for the Angus Art Collection. The ANGUSalive Purchase Prize of £1,500 is chosen by a panel of judges which includes artists and our Visual Arts Officer, Gill Ross. There is also the Colin Dakers Memorial Purchase Prize of £1,000 which is chosen by Colin Dakers' family.

Gill says "The Meffan Winter Exhibition is an exciting time of year for us as we don't know what artwork will come into our galleries. All mediums and disciplines are welcome, from paintings to sculpture, ceramics to jewellery.

When we're choosing our ANGUSalive Purchase Prize winners, we're looking for a piece of artwork that can speak for itself and would make an exciting addition to the Angus Art Collection."

There is also an opportunity for our visitors to vote for their favourite artwork. The winner of the public vote will receive a £200 prize.

The Winter Exhibition 2018 opens on Saturday the 17 November.

A call for entries and further details will be sent out to our mailing list. You can sign up to the mailing list here.

You can see paintings from the Angus collection in our ANGUSalive museums and galleries, which are all free admission. To find out more about the art collections, please visit our fine art collection page. You can also view some items from our collection on the Art UK website.
