The overall winner of the Rua Red Art Prize will be awarded a solo show in Gallery 2 at some point during the ensuing 12 month period.

Rua Red has a policy of supporting artists at all stages of their career. One of the new ways that Rua Red will implement this policy will be to select and purchase works from the Winter Open exhibition to form a new collection for the organisation. The works will go on show within the building on a rotational basis in the Conference and Meeting Room areas.

All works submitted for exhibition are considered by a Selection Panel.TBA.

To Apply: Fill out the Winter Open Form and send to events@ruared.ie and pay the €10 handling fee via Eventbrite by closing deadline 5pm, Friday 27th September
